When you think of a car manufacturer that produces everyday cars for everyday people, you’d probably think of Mazda. But what about if you took some pride and enthusiasm behind the wheel, and driving was more of an art or hobby for you, would you still think of Mazda? If you don’t, you need to be reminded there is a beaut pocket-sized roadster out there called the MX-5. And Mazda Australia recently introduced an update for the iconic driver’s car for 2018.
It all started in 1989 for the world’s best-selling two-seater sports car. Today, it still offers the great value and sporty soul that it always has. The current fourth-generation (ND) introduced a retractable fastback variant, called RF, that features a rigid roof and buttresses to give the car a coupé-like appearance.
To freshen up the lineup for 2018 a uniquely-packaged Limited Edition has been introduced, which looks very tempting indeed. It comes with the top-spec 2.0-litre petrol four-cylinder producing 118kW and 200Nm, matched exclusively with the six-speed manual transmission. Prices start at $55,790, plus on-road costs, making it the most expensive variant in the range.
