Mazda MX-5 Anniversary Edition
- Mazda MX-5 is 20 years old
- Just 2000 Anniversary editions to be built
- Priced from £16,850
A limited-edition Mazda MX-5 will be unveiled at the Geneva motor show to celebrate the two-seater's 20th anniversary.
Just 2000 of the Anniversary Edition MX-5s will be built and they'll be made available only in Europe. Each comes with a special edition stainless steel scuff plate and unique serial number from 1 – 2000.
The limited-edition model is based on the 1.8-litre SE soft-top roadster, but gets a special styling pack. This includes a chrome grille, door handles and headlight fascia, 17-inch alloy wheels and 20th anniversary logos.
Three exterior colours will be available: true red, crystal pearl white and – new for this edition only – aurora blue. The interior gets colour-coded elements to match the exterior paint, too.
The Anniversary Edition's dynamics get a boost, too, with the addition of a front suspension bracing bar to give it a more sporty edge.
When can I buy one?
The limited edition model goes on sale from March 1, with prices for the 1.8-litre model starting at £16,850. Around 600 cars will be on sale in UK showrooms.
Other Mazdas at the Geneva motor show
The all-new Mazda 5 will also be making its debut at the Geneva motor show in March.
The 5 gets a new 2.0-litre petrol engine that's approximately 15% cleaner than the unit it replaces, thanks to Mazda's i-stop engine stop-start system.
Mazda will also be showcasing its next-generation Sky concept, which includes the Sky-G petrol and Sky-D diesel engines, along with the Sky-Drive automatic gearbox – all of which combine cut emissions and increase fuel economy.
A face-lifted Mazda 6 will make up the third of Mazda's premieres at the Geneva motor show. The cleaner, more efficient 6 will be heading for the UK in late spring.
