2013 Mazda MX-5

The new-look Mazda MX-5 for 2013 has already been launched in Japan. There is no date set for European launch, but t shouldn’t take long.

The new model gets a new face, and that’s about it. An all-new model is coming over the next few years, so it’s understandable. The design of the upgraded Roadster distinguishes between the sporty character of the soft top and the refined character of the power retractable hard top (RHT) through the use of contrasting black and silver features. 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 2013 M-5 also 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. Very thoughtful.
