All-new Mazda MX-5

All-new Mazda MX-5 at Hodgson Mazda in Newcastle-upon-Tyne and Gateshead

All-new Mazda MX-5 is the evolution of an icon, embracing and improving the driving thrill for which its predecessors are so well loved. The latest generation reinforces the Mazda MX-5 as the world’s best-selling two-seater sports car, featuring an improved power-to-weight ratio, handling, styling and technology. The best just got better.


Underpinning all-new Mazda MX-5 is the innovative SKYACTIV-Body which is strong yet lightweight, tipping the scales at 100kg less than the previous model. The rigidity of the body lends supreme stability when cornering at high speeds, and creates a strong, protective safety cell around the occupants in the event of a collision.

The significant weight savings achieved by the SKYACTIV-Body have resulted in a perfect 50:50 weight distribution along with a lower centre of gravity, which further enhances the driving dynamics. The handling is sharp and reacts with lightning speed to each turn of the wheel and dip of the accelerator pedal. 


Innovative thinking makes all-new Mazda MX-5 such a unique car to drive. The Japanese notion of Jinba Ittai – ‘horse and rider as one’ – inspired the distinctive driving experience enjoyed by the latest model. Engineered to help you forge a bond with all-new Mazda MX-5, the car feels like an extension of your own body as soon as your hands touch the wheel.

The front-engine rear-wheel drive configuration is dynamic and is enhanced by an energetic throttle response. The short-throw 6-speed manual gearbox conveys confidence to drivers while 160ps SE-L and 160ps Sport models transfer power to the road via a limited slip differential for increased traction. Bilstein dampers are exclusively available with the 160ps Sport model and allow you tackle corners with even greater agility.

The SKYACTIV-Body is complemented by two SKYACTIV-G petrol engines. The smaller unit of the two, a 1.5-litre petrol, develops 131ps at 7,000rpm and peak torque of 150Nm at 4,800rpm. The larger 2.0-litre petrol option is ideal for those who want added muscle beneath the bonnet, with a higher power output of 160ps which arrives earlier in the rev range at 6,000rpm. Both engines use a 6-speed manual transmission and are entirely focused on delivering the ultimate driving enjoyment.

The power is evident in the straight-line speed statistics; the larger powertrain races from 0-62mph in 7.3 seconds and on to a top speed of 133mph. What’s more, Mazda’s expert refinement makes each engine remarkably economical. The 131ps engine returns an impressive efficiency of up to 47.1mpg combined and emits just 139g/km of CO2

Interior Design

The elegant exterior flows into an interior which has been crafted to create a refined environment from which to enjoy the thrilling drive. There is a sense of continuity and oneness communicated by the upper door trim that matches the exterior body colour flowing elegantly over the door. The premium upholstery of the entry-level SE model is replaced by heated seats clad in Black or Sand leather in the Sport variant. Leather is also used to finish the gear knob and steering wheel.

The intuitively laid-out cabin arrangement has also been designed to optimise the driving experience. Enjoy sitting low down in true motorsport fashion, where you can easily reach all of the functions without diverting your attention from the road. The instrument cluster is also in your natural line of sight and is clear and streamlined. 

Entertainment Features

The exhilarating drive isn’t the only source of entertainment, as all-new Mazda MX-5 is equipped with Mazda’s latest infotainment technology. The star of the show is MZD-Connect, allowing you to access music, social media and text messages via your smartphone. Connect your device to the system and operate all functions via the 7” colour touch-screen display positioned in the centre of the dashboard. Above speeds of 5mph the system is operated safely and intuitively using simple voice commands via the Multimedia Commander. MZD-Connect is fitted in all models apart from the SE variant, which instead provides USB and iPod® connectivity. 

All-new Mazda MX-5 stands apart from its rivals for more than performance. Signature KODO: Soul of Motion design language shapes the car with a look of strength and agility inspired by the motion of animals in the wild. A muscular body symbolises the vehicle’s power, while piercing LED headlights add to its confident road presence. The low-slung stance and well-proportioned dimensions combine to make it look poised and ready to charge as soon as the engine starts.

Safety Features

Mazda never compromises on safety and the protective qualities of the high-strength SKYACTIV-Body mean all-new Mazda MX-5 is very safe in the event of a collision. This feature is supported by intelligent active technologies that help to prevent incidents from occurring in the first place. The Dynamic Stability Control with Traction Control System detects when you get into a skid and then corrects it by controlling engine output and braking force. The innovative Deployable Hood System is designed to provide protection for pedestrians in the event of a front-on collision. It increases the crumple zone between the pedestrian and the engine by raising the bonnet on impact. These features and more give you total confidence when driving all-new Mazda MX-5, from the moment you take your seat until your arrival at your destination.
