Mazda MX-5

All-New MX-5 is set to give new meaning to the joy of driving we call Zoom-Zoom.

Arriving Spring of 2015, the 4th generation model has been re-engineered from the ground up in pursuit of absolute driving pleasure. Adopting breakthrough SKYACTIV TECHNOLOGY, including a newly developed SKYACTIV-Chassis specially made for the iconic roadster, it promises a significant gain in Jinba-Ittai fun.

'KODO - Soul of Motion' design adds another layer of sophistication. The exquisite proportions hint at the energy of motion, evoking the exhilaration of open-top driving. Lighter, nimbler and speed-suggestive in every detail, All-New MX-5 marks a new era of how imagination defines the journey of the most popular sports car of all time.
