What's New in the Updated Mazda MX-5

The latest iteration of the fourth-generation Mazda MX-5 continues to deliver an exhilarating driving experience, particularly with its six-speed manual gearbox.

Shifting into Joy

The manual transmission, known for its frictionless feel, is designed for optimal heel-and-toe downshifts, a feature cherished by driving enthusiasts.

This gearbox allows for precise control and a direct connection between car and driver, enhancing the joy of the overall driving experience.

Power Up

The performance of the updated MX-5 has been amplified by several new features:

Revised Air Intake

Enhances the induction noise for a more engaging driving experience.

Tuned Accelerator Response

Provides more rapid deceleration, especially beneficial on race circuits.

Asymmetric Limited Slip Differential (LSD)

Exclusive to the manual variant, this new LSD improves traction and handling.

Track Star

The newly introduced DSC-Track mode (available on the GT RS models) ensures that the MX-5 excels on the race track. DSC-Track mode allows for more controlled oversteer, providing an exciting yet manageable driving experience. The combination of the new Track setting for Dynamic Stability Control and the Asymmetric LSD allows drivers to fully exploit the rear-wheel-drive dynamics of the MX-5.

Manual Magic

Despite the general trend towards automatic transmissions, a significant portion of MX-5 buyers in Australia still prefer the manual option, with 65% choosing the six-speed manual over the automatic. This preference highlights the enduring appeal of a manual gearbox among driving purists and is a big reason why Mazda continues to offer this choice.

Tech & Visual Glow Up

The MX-5’s design and technology has received several updates:

New LED Lights

Exterior updates include enhanced rear LED lights, as well as DRLs integrated into the headlight assembly.

Improved Infotainment System

The updated MX-5 features a larger screen with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

MyMazda App & Mazda Connected Services

The MX-5 is the first in the Mazda lineup to offer these advanced connectivity features.

Joy on Wheels

The Mazda MX-5 remains a standout choice for those seeking pure driving joy. Its manual gearbox, performance enhancements, and latest technological updates ensure that it continues to deliver an unparalleled driving experience. As manual transmissions become increasingly rare, the MX-5 stands as a testament to the enduring appeal of traditional driving pleasure.
