World’s best-selling roadster returnsThu, 04 Sep 2014
MAZDA has released details on the brand-new fourth generation MX-5, already the best selling roadster of all time.
Launched simultaneously at events in Barcelona, Japan and the USA, the fourth-generation MX-5 is the first to benefit from Mazda’s SkyActiv efficient technology. That means a frugal but powerful petrol engine and a substantial weight saving of 100kg over the previous generation. Mazda claims that this brings it back to a mass close to that of the original MX-5/
Over 947,000 examples of the three previous generations have been sold since it was first introduced in 1989, and this latest version is sure to see the 1 million mark achieved once it goes on sale in 2015.
