The facelifted Mazda MX-5 is more fun to drive than ever. The latest version of the best selling roadster in history not only features more responsive acceleration and braking, but also an aggressive front-end design as well as enhanced pedestrian safety.
Mazda's technology specialists fine-tuned the acceleration management program (on manual shift models) to improve acceleration control and with it the linear response to throttle input, especially at lower speeds. By optimising the vacuum brake booster, meanwhile, they also enhanced brake return control. The upshot here is better handling thanks to superior front-rear load distribution. Drivers will appreciate these advancements most when braking into or accelerating out of curves. The Mazda MX-5, which has always excelled on winding roads, now reacts even more faithfully.
