Mazda has announced that it will present a new concept car at the Tokyo Motor Show, based on the MX-5 and designed to symbolize the theme of the exhibition.
The Japanese brand has made it known that the roadster will be the main focus of its space at the event at the end of October, where it will have several MX-5s on display, including a first-generation model, a two-thirds scale MX-5 for the little ones, and an MX-5 SeDV2, which can only be controlled by the driver’s hands.
It’s worth remembering that Mazda recently unveiled an update to the MX-5, for now only for Japan, which allows the brand’s iconic model to boast more power and technology.
As a result, the revamped MX-5 continues to have two Skyactiv-G engines, with the 1.5-liter engine now boasting 134 hp, 4 hp more than its predecessor, while the variant equipped with the 2.0-liter engine continues to deliver 184 hp, but its mapping has been improved to allow for better response.
In addition, Mazda’s small roadster is equipped with a new asymmetric self-locking differential that equips versions with a six-speed manual transmission.
Inside, the highlights are the infotainment system, which has a new 8.8″ screen, and the instrument panel, which has a new image while retaining the 4.6″ screen.
It is already known that the revamped MX-5 will hit the Japanese market in January 2024, but it is not yet known when it will be available in Europe.
