All-new Mazda MX-5 showcased at Paris Motor Show


Mazda put its all-new MX-5 in the spotlight at the Paris Motor Show, today.

Arriving 25 years after the original MX-5 was unveiled at the Chicago Auto Show, in 1989; Mazda's fourth generation MX-5 has been completely re-designed.

The exterior features a lower centre of gravity than its predecessor, and longer bonnet along with character lines expressing vitality and motion. Inside, Mazda has added state-of-the art technology like i-ACTIVSENSE active safety technology and MZD Connect - the company's in-car connectivity concept.

Engine options are yet to be confirmed but the model on display in Paris features SKYACTIV technology, including a SKYACTIV-G 1.5-litre petrol engine and six-speed SKYACTIV-MT manual gearbox in the roadster's classic front-midship engine, rear-wheel drive layout with near perfect 50:50 front-rear weight distribution.
