July 16th, 2012

A glimpse of the 2013 MX-5 Miata.The latest incarnation of Mazda’s MX-5 Miata has just hit the market in Japan as the 2013 Roadster. The refreshed two-seater open-top sports car is likely to migrate overseas in the near future, giving U.S. MX-5 fans something to anticipate.

The design of the upgraded MX-5 Miata distinguishes between the sporty character of the soft top and the refined character of the power retractable hard top through the use of coordinated black and silver features respectively. The front face of both versions has been redesigned to present a more aggressive look.

For the interior, a new luxury tan color is available for the genuine leather seats. In addition, revised characteristics of the throttle and brake booster (power braking device) have improved control of the accelerator in the manual transmission models and the brakes in all models. The enhancements add polish to the pure driving pleasure which has made the Roadster (MX-5) famous.

In addition, the updated MX-5 Miata features an Active Bonnet (pedestrian protection system) which raises the rear end of the bonnet in the event of an accident to reduce impact to the head.

The keywords guiding the design of the soft top were “tight sports”. Coordinated black features express sportiness. The keywords guiding the design of the RHT were “premium sports.” Coordinated silver features denote refined, high quality driving performance.

A lustrous and expressive new color, Glossy Dark Gray is used for the decoration panel and steering wheel bezel. Addition of a new tan color for the genuine leather seat covers. Black on the seat sides creates a stylish two-tone design. Fabric (black), leather (tan and black) and a combination of Alcantara® and black leather seat cover materials are available.
