The 2009 Mazda MX-5 range is now available in showrooms ready for the rush of open-top sports car fans this Spring. Both the soft-top and Roadster Coupe bodystyles have been updated for 2009 to echo the design language seen on the all-new Mazda3, on sale from May 2009, the Mazda RX-8 R3 and the award-winning Mazda2 supermini.
Thanks to enhanced chassis modifications, the 2009 Mazda MX-5 remains unrivalled both as a rewarding driver's car and an open-top roadster that can be used for everyday motoring all year round.
Fine-tuning of the engines coupled to aerodynamic drag reduction have achieved significant reductions in CO2 emissions down to 167 g/km for the 1.8i SE model, from 174 g/km. Add to that improved fuel consumption - just 40.4 mpg for the 1.8i SE, up from 38.7 mpg - all contributing to reduced running costs over the outgoing model. In addition, the whole sports car ownership experience is supported by Mazda's renowned reliability and durability.
"The latest exterior, interior and technical upgrades to the 2009 Mazda MX-5 range will ensure that the soft-top will continue to offer pure, fun-to-drive, open-top motoring thrills, while the Mazda MX-5 Roadster Coupe offers both open-top motoring as well as a more coupe-like, premium experience," commented Mark Cameron, Sales & Marketing Director, Mazda UK.
Both the Mazda MX-5 soft-top and Mazda MX-5 Roadster Coupe remain true to the original concept which made the Mazda MX-5 the world's best-selling sportscar.Published 3 April 2009
