Mazda MX-5 Gets Even Better

Mazda MX-5 1.8i Sport


The timeless Mazda MX-5 has received some product enhancements to increase specification across the range.

All Mazda MX-5s now include a fuel empty light to warn of impending fuel starvation and ISOFIX front passenger child seat anchoring for added safety for those younger children who are still in their Zoom-Zoom years.

All Mazda MX-5s now have electric heated mirrors and an electric aerial and the option of the more visually attractive cloth soft top combined with 15" alloy wheels in lieu of the vinyl roof. The Mazda MX-5 1.8 Sport has improved specification which includes a chrome fuel filler cap, cloth soft top and Bilstein dampers all as standard. A new option on the Mazda MX-5 Sport is factory fitted satellite navigation.

The Mazda MX-5 has become an icon; it was the car that brought back affordable fun motoring, an experience that over 600,000 people worldwide have rediscovered. The Mazda MX-5 popularity shows no signs of waning and this year will see all-time record sales in the UK outselling its nearest rivals.

The Mazda MX-5 1.6i retains its price at £14,995 and the 1.8i retains its price of £15,495 with the alloy wheel and cloth soft-top option retailing at just £650.

The Mazda MX-5 1.8i Sport has increased price by just £500 to £17,995 with a price tag of £1,500 for the satellite navigation option.
