North America’s Miata or Japan’s Eunos Roadster, Mazda MX-5 sports car has become the source of happiness for the car enthusiasts now. As per latest reports, the Japanese carmaker has started producing an upgraded version of Mazda MX-5 sports car in Japan. If rumors are to be believed then we can presume that the car will hit the UK showrooms later this year.
Many changes have been made in the Mazda MX-5’s improved version which has attracted car lovers’ attention towards itself. The most significant changes have been made in the car’s designing. Easily locatable visual changes have been the most eye-catching. The new front bumper’s inclusion has made the sports car look even better than before. In fact, it’s just not the change in appearance that has been the made in the new design. If the introduction of the new front bumper is given a technical view, you’d find that the bumper has partially improved aerodynamics of the car and pedestrians’ safety too.
The most attractive feature of the improved Mazda MX-5 is its active bonnet feature. The car will be the first in its kind to featuresuch an option. The reason behind it is to avoid any solid contact under the hood with forces outside it. The active bonnet would rise up as soon as any pedestrian unintentionally or unfortunately lands on it. The risen bonnet would then minimize the chances of his contact with something solid under the bonnet. Isn’t it innovative?
Apart from the aforesaid new features, the car’s interiors too have been greatly improved. The list of improvement goes on as the brakes, the manual-transmission and even throttle pedal has been reworked.
Although some of the changes made in the sports car promises better performance technically, but the carmaker has claimed that the Mazda MX-5 would actually be more fun driving. Fun-factor during the driving of the Mazda MX-5 has been the motive of the company since the last twenty years. Now when it is being promised at a newer level, what else do you need?
