Classic Roadster Meets the Modern Day.
The 2019 MX-5 is steeped in the finest roadster history, and yet delivers on the cutting edge. From a re-tuned SKYACTIV engine for even more horsepower and torque, to the latest safety and infotainment options, the MX-5 offers the best of both worlds. Race-track tested, with beautiful proportions and harmonious 50/50 balance, the MX-5 serves up pure driving joy.
For Mazda engineers, harmony is not simply an ideal; it’s a promise. That’s why, for more than a quarter of a century, every MX‑5 has been designed with near perfect 50/50 weight distribution for a smoother, more connected driving experience. Of course, the delicate harmony of the front mid‑ship engine and rear‑wheel‑drive configuration is not balanced without you, the driver, sitting behind the wheel.
Superb Driving Dynamics
With near perfect balance and a light, compact body the MX-5 is fine tuned to deliver brilliant control in turns and exhilarating handling in straightaways. For 2019, improvements have been made to the engine sound to enhance the feeling of driving joy.
For the 2019 MX-5, Mazda engineers focused on crafting an even more powerful, nimble drive. Fine-tuning includes using ultra-lightweight pistons and lighter connecting rods to enable higher rpms, improved combustion chamber and a larger exhaust manifold. You get more power when you need it and a remarkably agile ride.
For the 2019 MX-5, Mazda engineers increased horsepower to 181 hp @ 7,000 rpm. You enjoy even better overall power and performance, especially at higher speeds and that joyful, effortless feeling behind the wheel.
Mazda engineers upped torque to 151 lb. ft. @ 4,000 rpm. Torque is what generates the power to make horsepower relevant. Higher torque means better acceleration and power to move you, and is especially important at lower speeds.
The Roadster Designed with Drivers in Mind.
From its strikingly muscular appearance, to its sensationally intuitive feel, every stitch and seam of the 2019 MX-5 is woven together meticulously with the principles of KODO design to ensure a profound connection between the driver and vehicle. Comfortable on the inside yet aerodynamic on the outside, the MX-5 is designed to quickly respond to instinct and offer a compellingly thrilling drive. Now available with Dark Cherry or Brown roof.**
The MX-5 is designed to be exhilarating at a standstill. Starting with its signature curves and beautiful sloping hood, the muscular stance evokes the feeling of motion and the desire to get in and drive. Eye-catching LED lights and round rear lamps not only elevate the design but also improve visibility at night.
At Mazda, we’re all about proactive safety measures that swing into action to alert you so that you can avoid a collision or lessen its impact. Now with more standard i-ACTIVSENSE features, our suite of safety technologies help you stay in tune with your MX-5 and focus on the road ahead.
Lane Departure Warning System (LDWS)
LDWS automatically senses lane markings on the road and alerts the driver when it predicts the vehicle is going to unintentionally depart from its lane. Now standard on all MX-5 models.
Traffic Sign Recognition System (TSR)
The Traffic Sign Recognition† uses cameras to read road signs such as speed limit, do not enter and stop signs‡. This information then shows up on the 4.6” multi-information display.
Wide-angle Rearview Camera
To complement i-ACTIVSENSE safety technology, the 2019 MX-5 also comes with a rearview camera. Just power on your MX-5 and shift it into reverse. A rearview display then shows on your MAZDA CONNECT screen, allowing you to navigate obstacles behind the vehicle. Standard on all MX-5 models.
