The Mazda MX-5 is Zoom-Zoom in its purest form. Lighter and more streamlined than ever, the open-top MX-5 brings car and driver together in the true spirit of ‘Jinba Ittai’ – the philosophy of ‘horse and rider as one’. The lean, muscular lines of ‘KODO – Soul of Motion’ design capture the moment when energy becomes motion, while the uncluttered interior is designed to feel like an extension of the driver. The Mazda MX-5’s reputation for driving pleasure is heightened even further with the outstanding performance of SKYACTIV TECHNOLOGY, along with the added confidence of i-ACTIVSENSE advanced safety technologies. As the world’s most popular lightweight sports car for over two decades, the iconic Mazda MX-5 excites every sense like only a true roadster can.
The MX-5 captures Mazda’s signature KODO Design philosophy in its most exciting form, with every angle and contour poised for action. For wind-in-the-hair exhilaration, the roof glides seamlessly away from view with the push of a button. When closed, the roof reinforces the MX-5’s striking shape, with the new RF hard-top models featuring a classic fastback
silhouette. Incorporating true sports car elements with the spirit of its three previous generations, the MX-5 commands a striking road presence.
The Mazda MX-5 is the epitome of the driver’s car, with every element carefully designed to evoke the feeling of being at one with the vehicle. Understated, quality finishes like leather feature throughout, while symmetrically arranged controls are positioned for optimal driving position and comfort. In the RF model, you’ll experience reduced cabin noise, along with one of the world’s fastest roof opening- and closing times. Everything about the uncluttered, driver-focused interior has been considered to maximise the driving pleasure of the roadster experience.
The evolution of Jinba Ittai
The intuitive relationship between car and driver can be felt in the ultra-responsive handling of the Mazda MX-5. The new generation has experienced a significant weight loss, yet an increased sense of rigidity. An enhanced feeling of balance and control is a result of perfect 50:50 front-rear weight distribution. With a lowered centre of gravity and the engine brought
closer to the vehicle’s centre, you’ll experience responsiveness and stability resulting in the purest embodiment of Jinba Ittai yet. The car becomes a true extension of the driver, responding with innate agility to every command.
