Frankfurt also sees the presentation of the third-generation Mazda MX-5, which will be launched at the end of this year in Europe. The new Mazda MX-5 retains the same vehicle concept that has made it so popular around the world - affordable, lightweight, compact and perfectly balanced with front midship engine and rear-wheel drive.

Within these parameters, the new Mazda MX-5 delivers an even lower centre of gravity than its predecessor for even more instantaneous handling response. It is also longer, wider and higher, with more room on the inside, and it is safer.

Despite these upgrades, vehicle weight has remained nearly the same, which ensures the same compact, open-top Zoom-Zoom driving fun the roadster has always been known for. The third-generation Mazda MX-5 will continue the tradition that made it the best-selling roadster of all time in an exciting, fun-to-drive vehicle evolved for the 21st-Century.
