Mazda MX-5
Local buyers asking for the Machine Gray and red soft top combination now get their wish.

THE upgraded Mazda MX-5 sports roadster, with new safety features and performance enhancements, is now available in all 20 showrooms of Mazda Philippines.

New for the 2018 MX-5 Soft Top line is the limited edition Dark Cherry fabric canopy, which comes exclusively with the six-speed SkyActiv automatic transmission variant, and the signature Mazda Machine Gray body color as an option. Mazda added its new Soul Red Crystal color is now also offered in select variants.

Among the primary mechanical improvements for the 2018 MX-5 Soft Top are the car’s retuned rear suspension and power steering system, which Mazda said ensures “even more agile handling and improved ride comfort for the lightweight roadster.”

Meanwhile, offered as an option for the MX-5 Retractable Fastback variant is Mazda’s six-speed manual SkyActiv transmission. Nappa leather remains optional for the hardtop with an automatic transmission while black leather is standard for the manual.

Additional safety features for both MX-5 variants are adaptive LED head lamps and lane departure warning.

Prices for the 2018 MX-5 range between P1.880 million and P2.3 million.
