MAZDA MX-5 GETS REFRESH
Driveline tweaks and a new nose for the popular roadster
Visual changes include a more aggressive front bumper (one that also improves aero performance), while dolphin Grey Mica has been added to the list of paint options.
This isn't just a refreshed bumper, though. Mazda has actually done some work under the bonnet, with a modified throttle response on manual models helping to increase the linearity of acceleration feel. The brakes, meanwhile, have been tweaked with the vacuum brake booster being revised to 'optimise brake return control'.
Sure, it's not quite as sexy as the MX-5 GT road car concept that Mazda unveiled in June, but it's good to see Mazda is still putting the effort in even as the little roadster's current iteration nears the end of its life...
