Mazda MX-5 Kuro


The lovely Mazda MX-5 is getting a new special edition version called Kuro in the roadster loving England.

The name Kuro, meaning Black in Japanese, is echoed in the sporty, dark accents of this latest pair of Special Edition models.  A Brilliant Black roof, Brilliant Black door mirrors and dark gunmetal 17-inch alloy wheels, contrast dramatically with the three exterior colours – Velocity Red Mica, Crystal White Pearlescent and Brilliant Black. Mazda MX-5 Kuro customers have a choice of two powertrains – the 126ps 1.8i with a five-speed gearbox (Soft-top) and the 160ps 2.0i with a smooth-shifting six-speed manual transmission (Roadster Coupe). Our pick is a brilliant black soft top!

The MX-5 1.8i Kuro Soft-top is priced at £18,495 and the MX-5 2.0i Kuro Roadster Coupe costs £21,995. The soft top is the more limited version as only 220 units of it will be sold, while the coupe has a allocation of 400 units.

Further details in Mazda press release:

Based on the MX-5 SE and Sport Tech models, the Kuro will be available as a 1.8i Soft-top and a 2.0i Roadster Coupe with additional specification highlights over the donor car that also include: a diffuser-style rear sports bumper, larger diameter sports exhaust, unique race car inspired exterior graphics, Black detailing around the front grille and front fog lights, plus unique ‘Kuro Edition’ badging.

Inside, MX-5 Kuro has unique Stone and Black heated leather seats, Stone leather door inserts, with contrasting red stitching, a silver interior deco panel with red accents, alloy pedals, premium floor mats with race inspired logo and climate control air-conditioning.

“Special Edition models of the MX-5 are incredibly popular in the UK and now the ‘Kuro’ offers a unique combination of sports focused exterior styling and sophisticated leather interior fittings – in a sportscar that remains unrivalled as an exhilarating drive that can also be used everyday,” comments Peter Allibon, Sales Director, Mazda UK.  “With their low running costs, enviable reliability and our current low-rate finance offers, the MX-5 Kuro duo makes a compelling ownership proposition – a thoroughly modern sportscar that people can buy with their head and their heart.”

The new Kuro models have all the dynamic attributes of the world’s best-selling sportscar.  Featuring a front-engined, rear-wheel drive chassis to deliver perfect balance, with razor-sharp handling and pure driving exhilaration, the MX-5 has been voted ‘Best Roadster’ by Auto Express magazine for six years in a row.
