29 Apr 2020 | International News : U.K.


As the world's best-selling two-seater roadster enters its fourth decade on sale, Mazda U.K. has revealed the R-Sport special edition.

Limited to just 150 examples, this stand-out MX-5 Convertible will feature a free-of-charge Polymetal Grey metallic paint and a grey soft-top hood, while 16-inch RAYS gunmetal alloy wheels finish the unique exterior look of this special edition.

The Mazda MX-5 R-Sport special edition model receives a bespoke design for both the interior and exterior
The Polymetal Grey colour is a new addition to the 2020 Mazda MX-5 lineup, and on the R-Sport it is matched to piano black wing mirrors. The inside of the R-Sport model features Burgundy Nappa leather seats with silver stitching, ensuring the interior has the same bespoke feel as the exterior.

Based on the 1.5-litre 130bhp Skyactiv-G Sport trim MX-5, the MX-5 R-Sport is the latest example of Mazda U.K.'s long tradition of offering personalised limited volume MX-5s.

The R-Sport's standard equipment tally includes navigation, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, cruise control, heated seats and climate control. In addition to the R-Sport, the updated 2020 Mazda MX-5 range features a 10-model lineup - four Convertibles and six RFs. The 130bhp 1.5-litre Convertible is offered in SE-L and Sport trim, while the 182bhp 2.0-litre Skyactiv-G engine is matched to Sport Tech and the new range-topping GT Sport Tech trim. In addition, 2.0-litre RFs in both trim levels come with the option to choose an automatic gearbox.

The range-topping GT Sport Tech trim stands out with its 17-inch BBS alloy wheels
New for the 2020 Mazda MX-5, the GT Sport Tech flagship model is marked out by 17-inch BBS alloy wheels and Burgundy Nappa leather seats, while across the whole range the MX-5 is available with Polymetal Grey Metallic paint for the first time.

The updated version of Mazda's sports car also benefits from extra standard safety equipment. From Sport models and above, the MX-5 features Front Smart City Brake Support, Lane Departure Warning System, Rear Smart City Brake Support, Traffic Sign Recognition and Driver Attention Alert.

Blind Spot Monitoring System with Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Adaptive LED head lights and a reversing camera are standard on Sport Tech and GT Sport Tech models. As expected for a car so famed for its dynamic abilities, the 2020 Mazda MX-5 R-Sport retains the same award-winning chassis and mechanical setup as the 1.5-litre Sport MX-5.
