Mazda Brings The Heat With The New MX-5

The Mazda MX-5 has always been an impressive beast. It’s perhaps the perfect choice for someone who wants a stylish sports car without the typical, hefty price tag added into the picture. So, ultimately, the MX-5 is a dream and as a perk is also cost friendly. The classic royal red speedster has certainly been a hit with buyers, and millions have been sold worldwide. But now, there’s a new kid on the block. The 2019 Mazda MX-5 is bigger and packs more of a punch. But is it worth the upgrade or is it worth taking the plunge if you haven’t yet invested in this model?

The Coolest Convertible Around

Are you in the market for a convertible? If so then you should definitely make sure that you check out the new Mazda. The latest version of the MX-5 comes with a convertible and RF retractable roof which is just brilliant for those summer months. You’ll love taking this one out for the weekend or just for a spin after work. It could be a trip to the shop or a trip to the beach, and it won’t be a wasted journey when you get to experience the fun of swinging it into the corners. All the while the wind will be blowing beautifully around you, keeping things icy cool on a hot summer’s day.

Of course, the new hardtop retractable roofs are just one of the exciting options that might persuade you to make this purchase. There are also performance improvements, extra safety equipment and refinements to the interior. But before we discuss any of this, let’s talk about something that really matters, power.

More Power

Yes, if you were hoping for a more powerful, fierce Mazda MX-5, your wish has been granted. The new 2-liter engine is sure to impress and provides a higher rev count than earlier models. Often, when you are switching between years on models of cars, the difference particularly with the physical build are minimal. That’s not the case here. Indeed, you’ll find everything is shiny and new.

If you want to explore the technical changes, then there are various areas to discover, from the new fuel injectors to the changes for the camshafts. All this adds up to one incredible beast and a starting 184 horsepower as well as an increased redline.

We could talk about the aesthetics here as well because the sound that this vehicle makes is absolutely astounding. Some sports cars still sound like a frightened kitten. This one raws like a lion.

There’s actually two sizes of engine to choose from. You can opt for the 1.5 or the 2.0, and while one is obviously more powerful, both are incredibly impressive with numerous upgrades from last year’s MX-5.

Safety First

Are you worried about making sure that you have one of the safest cars on the road? The New MX-5 will definitely not disappoint. It has all the latest features that you would expect including advanced innovative tech such as the lane departure warning system and a blind spot detection unit. You get LED headlights too, providing a clearer view of the road ahead.

Pitch Perfect Pricing

It’s quite common for the latest models of vehicles to balloon massively in price. They always give a reason for this of course. Oh, you want the new Land Rover? This one isn’t like the old one. It has partial autonomous tech which is enough to add ten grand onto the asking price. You might think the same is true here, but actually, it isn’t it. You can pick up an MX-5 for just nineteen thousand from a dealer like Berwick Mazda which is amazingly just four thousand more than the original. That’s right, not last years, four thousand more than the first one to hit the market twenty-eight years ago.

Style Matters

Finally, let’s think about the way this car looks. The two-seater sports dream is nothing short of stunning with curves and lines in all the right places. The narrow snake-eye like headlights give the car the look of a cunning predator while the improved body makes it seem almost futuristic. Despite all this though, the car still maintains what has always made it so popular. It has an everlasting appeal of a true racer. It’s the type of car that wouldn’t look out of place on the silver screen in the seventies back when sports cars where more than just toys and were, in fact, magnificent works of art.

5-liter supercharged V8 engine and will reach 60 mph in 4.0 seconds, and a top speed of 186 mph (electronically limited)2. The F-TYPE S Coupe and F-TYPE Coupe are powered by 3-liter supercharged V6 engines in 380hp and 340hp forms respectively, giving 0-60 mph in 4.8/5.1 seconds and top speeds of 171/161 mph2.

The F-TYPE Coupe visual message is defined by three key ‘heart lines’, that visual message beginning with the formidable grille. It is from the twin ‘shark gill’ openings that sit either side of the grille that the essential first heart line – which mirrors the design of the F-TYPE Convertible – flows and begins to take shape. Running up through the headlamp, and accentuated by the LED ‘J blade’ signature running lamps, the line then arcs up over the front wheel arch before dropping elegantly as it runs through the door, washing out into the muscular rear haunch.

The second heart line begins at the rear edge of the door, swelling outwards and upwards to create a visually strong wheel arch, emphasizing the car’s rear-wheel drive layout, before dropping vertically through the tail lamp ...
