Mazda’s updated MX-5 has gone on sale in the UK.
Priced from £24,755, the MX-5 line-up incorporates 10 individual models with four convertible and six Retractable Fastback variants available.
As well as a new Platinum Quartz Metallic paint colour, the MX-5 now comes with Kinematic Posture Control (KPC). This system has been designed to help the car remain even more stable during cornering by applying a small amount of braking force to the inner or unloaded rear wheel when going around a bend. As a result, the car’s body is pulled down, suppressing body roll and providing a more stable cornering experience.
Save for this addition, the MX-5’s mechanicals remains unchanged. There’s still the option of two powertrains in the form of a 130bhp 1.5-litre and a 181bhp, 2.0-litre engine bringing a 0-60mph time in versions fitted with the latter of 6.3 seconds in the convertible and 5.7 seconds in the RF.
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 2022 Mazda MX-5 we continue to offer one of the most exciting and satisfying to drive cars money can buy.”
