Mazda MX5 upgrade arrives in Australia

2013 Mazda MX-5
Fresh from it’s showing at the Australian International Motor Show the new-Look Mazda MX-5, the latest iteration of the world’s most popular open-top sports car, has arrived in Australia and is available now in Mazda showrooms across the country.

Thanks to a series of exterior and interior design upgrades, the New-Look MX-5 is more appealing than ever.

A newly designed front bumper design gives the MX-5 a more aggressive look, a larger front grille offers a sense of depth while an updated front fog lamp bezel and a new front chin spoiler help to complete the new look.

Driving the MX-5 has become even more enjoyable thanks to revised accelerator and brake characteristics.

Adjustment to the throttle management programme in manual models makes the MX-5 more responsive when accelerating out of corners, while updates to the brake booster make it easier to control the front and rear load distribution – improving braking ability all round.

New-Look MX-5 comes in two grades, Roadster Coupe and the Roadster Coupe Sports. Available with a choice of a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission, prices start at $47,280 (MLP).
