Mazda has upgraded the Mazda Roadster for the Japanese market. Outside Japan, the car is known as the Mazda MX-5. The refreshed two-seater open-top sports car goes on sale in Japan since yesterday.
The design of the upgraded Roadster distinguishes between the sporty character of the soft top and the refined character of the power retractable hard top (RHT) through the use of coordinated black and silver features respectively. The front face of both versions has been redesigned to present a more aggressive look.
For the interior, a new luxury tan colour is available for the genuine leather seats. In addition, revised characteristics of the throttle and brake booster have improved control of the accelerator in the manual transmission models and the brakes in all models. The enhancements add polish to the pure driving pleasure which has made the MX-5 Roadster famous.
In addition, the updated Roadster features an Active Bonnet as pedestrian protection system which raises the rear end of the bonnet in the event of an accident to reduce impact to the head. Do check out the photos on the below!
