Mazda MX-5 Features

View the features for the Mazda MX-5 at Townsville Mazda below.

Features 1

Designed for the driver

bold and unique road presence is the mark of any great roadster. All-New Mazda MX-5 delivers, bringing you Mazda’s signature KODO Design at its most exciting. Every element and proportion comes together to bring the driver closer to the car and more in tune with the road, and the world around them. The soft-top glides seamlessly away from view for wind-in-the-hair exhilaration, lowered by hand with one simple action. When closed, the roof reinforces the striking shape of the vehicle, adding a more defined silhouette.

Features 1

Jump in and feel at one

The sleek design promotes a greater sense of connection to the open-air, and oneness between car and driver. Quality finishes feature throughout, with all controls intuitively positioned to surround the driver in symmetry for optimal driving position and comfort. On Roadster GT, interior panels feature exterior paintwork for a unique finish to the cockpit. Everything about the uncluttered, driver-focused interior has been considered to maximise driving pleasure. 

Features 1

Crafted to perfection

Designed to perfectly connect you to the car, the seating position accommodates drivers of various heights offering the perfect driving position for your back and hips. A new net structure in both the seatback and cushions reduces vibration for a more comfortable ride. A car’s connectivity should never be at the expense of the drive. That’s why the 7” touchscreen is perfectly placed so your eyes never move far from the road. Use the Sat Nav, sync your music and more while keeping in the moment (optional on 1.5L Roadster).

Features 2

The purest Zoom-Zoom yet

Breakthrough SKYACTIV TECHNOLOGY is behind the exhilarating, yet economical performance. The innovation is applied to every element of the vehicle, unlocking superior handling and better fuel efficiency. All-New MX-5 is significantly lighter than the previous model. The chassis, body and suspension system are more rigid thanks to innovative SKYACTIV TECHNOLOGY. 

Features 2

Drive with confidence

The high-strength SKYACTIV-BODY is engineered to minimise harm in the event of a collision. Front airbags for both passengers and side-airbags with head-protecting cells safeguard against impact even with the top down. ABS brakes feature Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD), which matches braking to vehicle load, while Emergency Brake Assist (EBA) boosts stopping power when emergency braking is sensed. An Emergency Stop Signal (ESS) activates the hazard lights to warn following drivers of sudden deceleration. Limited-Slip Differential (LSD) applies equal torque to both wheels, minimising wheel-spin (manual only).

Features 2

Handle the unexpected

Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) keeps All-New Mazda MX-5 more stable when cornering or swerving around an object. When required, the system reduces your engine power and regulates braking pressure on individual wheels. Traction Control System (TCS) stops your wheels from spinning on slippery or challenging surfaces such as loose stones, by regulating the torque of the SKYACTIV-G engine.

SKYACTIV-G Petrol Engines

Our new generation SKYACTIV-G petrol engines deliver an exhilarating drive by unleashing more power and torque from less fuel. Internal components have been designed to reduce weight and friction, while the ultra-high compression ratio of 13.0:1 and unique piston design promotes more effective fuel combustion throughout the RPM range.

SKYACTIV-G 1.5L Petrol Engine

The SKYACTIV-G 1.5L petrol engine is specially-tuned to achieve 150Nm of torque and 96kW of power with outstanding fuel economy of 6.1L/100km (combined manual). This gives MX-5 sporty performance that responds quickly to your commands. 

SKYACTIV-G 2.0L Petrol Engine

The SKYACTIV-G 2.0L petrol engine unleashes even more exhilaration with 118kW of power and 200Nm of torque from just 6.9L/100km (combined manual). The extra power and torque delivers powerful acceleration across the RPM range to give you more of that Zoom-Zoom feeling.

2016 Wheels Car of the Year

Chosen from an outstanding field, the judges looked at every aspect of the car across the categories of function, efficiency, technology, safety and value. The MX-5’s spirited engine, extraordinary handling and sleek design proved to be a winning combination.

It’s the third time the world’s favourite roadster has taken out this prestigious award and proof yet again that nothing beats pure Zoom-Zoom.

Take a look at what the Wheels judges had to say.
