Mazda MX-5 is no pocket rocket, but you cannot deny it is the one roadster that managed to look good through the generations thus far. For those looking to get into roadster-ing, MX-5 is a good starting point.
Speaking of which, if you are in the market for one (like, what are the odds given the current situation…), Mazda UK has just introduced a new special edition of the ND MX-5, the Mazda MX-5 R-Sport Special Edition.
Based on the 130 HP 1.5L Skyactive-G 2020 Mazda MX-5 Sport, the R-Sport rolls on a unique 16-inch RAYS ZE40 wheels in gun metallic, and further features piano black mirrors and comes with a premium grey fabric soft-top.
While it may sounds like not a lot to it, it is actually a tad pricier over the standard Sport which it is based on. The Sport has a starting price of £26,100 (around $32,400) while the R-Sport starts at £27,700 (about $34,390). And the price is inclusive of the Polymetal Grey paint job and burgundy Nappa leather seats.
Beyond that are the standard equipment that comes with the Sport:
• Apple CarPlay and Android Auto
• Cruise control
• Heated seats and climate control
• Front and Rear Smart City Brake Support
• Lane Departure Warning System
• Traffic Sign Recognition
• Drive Attention Alert
• I-ELOOP kinetic recovery
• i-stop stop-start technology
UK residents who are interested can now register their interest for the £27,700 drop-top ride. But you may want to act on it fast cos’ the Mazda MX-5 R-Sport Special Edition Roadster is limited to 150 examples. Delivery is slated to commence after current retail restrictions are lifted in the U.K..
