Fond Memories Of My MX5


20th September 2019 and sadly old age and illness have overtaken me at last. I am no longer well enough to drive and my much loved MX5 has gone to a new home. It will always be the best car I ever had and the memories of exhilarating drives over the moors will stay with me forever.
Goodbye my old friend.

2019 MX5 – More Power, More Pleasure!

Mazda is launching an update of its bestselling roadster, refining the joy of open-top motoring and enhancing the inimitable thrill of the Jinba Ittai driving experience. Both soft-top and RF versions of Mazda’s brand icon feature marked improvements in dynamic performance, an upgrade to Mazda’s i-ACTIVSENSE safety technologies, and refinements to design and packaging, making the world’s favorite roadster more exciting and satisfying to drive than ever before.

  • Updated 1.5 and 2.0-litre SKYACTIV-G petrol engines1 with improved combustion and greater torque. Both powertrains benefit from refined acceleration control to minimise lag between throttle applications and vehicle response.
  • SKYACTIV-G 2.0 engine now higher-revving and acoustically tuned, with maximum engine speed raised from 6,800 to 7,500 rpm, maximum horsepower increased from 160 to 184 PS @ 7,000 rpm, and maximum torque from 200 to 205 Nm @ 4,000 rpm.
  • Five new i-ACTIVSENSE safety technologies: Advanced Smart City Brake Support which detects vehicles and pedestrians ahead and helps avoid collisions, and Smart City Brake Support (Reverse) which detects vehicles and obstacles behind, as well as Driver Attention Alert, a Traffic Sign Recognition System and a Rear View Camera.
  • The award-winning KODO-Soul of Motion design is enriched through a darker paint finish for both 16″ and 17″ alloy wheels, and the availability of a new brown canopy colour for soft-top models.

The 2019 Mazda MX5 goes on sale throughout Europe from August 2018 onwards.
