Mazda has announced the refreshed Mazda MX-5 range will feature fuel-saving technology in the form of a new stop-start function called ‘i-ELOOP’. It will also boast a variety of tech updates.

Mazda MX-5

The entry-level MX-5 is the SE-L (£23,795) which comes with LED headlights, 16in alloy wheels and electrically folded wing mirrors. Changes are minor on the inside, with fabric sports seats and a leather-trimmed steering wheel. A seven-inch infotainment unit offering satnav as well as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto also features.

Moving up the range, MX-5 Sport (£26,095) offers black leather seats with silver stitching, chrome trim, and a premium Bose sound system. Additional safety kit includes lane departure warning as well as driver attention alert and autonomous emergency braking.

MX-5 ITR

Both SE-L and Sport models are powered by a Mazda’s 1.5-litre SkyActiv-G petrol engine, with the six-speed manual producing 130bhp. Both are available in either convertible or Retractable Fastback (RF) guise.

Sport Tech (£28,395) features reversing camera and blind spot monitoring as well as adaptive LED lights. Larger 17in alloy wheels as well as sports suspension also feature.

MX-5 interior

At the top of the range is the flagship GT Sport Tech (£29,895). This model is marked out by a more upmarket interior featuring red Nappa leather seats. Stainless steel scuff plates and power-heated wing mirrors also feature.

Sport Tech and GT Sport Tech models use a more powerful 181bhp 2.0-litre SkyActive-G petrol engine which offers 181bhp via six-speed manual. These models also feature a tuned exhaust system as well as sharper handling.

MX-5 RF

Both Sport Tech RF and GT Sport Tech RF can also be spec’d with either the six-speed manual or an automatic gearbox.

Commenting on the 2020 Mazda MX-5, Jeremy Thomson, Mazda UK managing director, said: “When it comes to driver engagement, the current generation MX-5 has already established itself as a benchmark sports car, and with the 2020 Mazda MX-5 we continue to offer one of the most exciting and satisfying to drive cars money can buy.”
