MX-5 Overview

Since last 25 years, the Mazda MX-5 has served as the most popular convertible car for the masses, by giving the fun and special feel of owning a ‘wind in the hair’ experience without asking for a stupendously high price just like its European counterparts. Back in 2011, the Mazda MX-5 recorded itself in the Guinness Book of World Records as the highest selling 2-seater sports car, when it surpassed the production milestone of 1 million units. With compact dimensions and sufficiently powerful 2.0-litre petrol engine, the Mazda MX-5 might not be scarily fast as some of the European giants, but then, it serves as the stepping stone for all those who wish to upgrade to a convertible from a regular car.

In the Philippines, the Mazda MX-5 is available in two versions – soft top and hard top. While the soft top comes with a manual gearbox with black top and automatic gearbox with cherry top, the hard top is being offered in a retractable fastback guise with a manual gearbox with black top and an automatic gearbox with body colored top.


Mazda MX-5 Interior & Features

On the inside, the simplicity of the exterior profile of the Mazda MX-5 is continued with a rather subtle looking cabin, which comes with a leather finish to complement the premium appeal of a convertible car. You do get the options of a full black cabin with black leather seats or a dual tone black and beige cabin with Nappa leather seats for that additional special feel.

The overall layout of the dashboard looks a bit busy with a circular theme carried out on it, including vents and dials for the AC which is round-shaped. The 3-spoke steering wheel with a round central unit comes integrated with buttons mounted on it for audio, telephony and cruise controls, and has a nice silver finish to it, which looks premium. The instrument console with centrally mounted large tachometer might remind you of the Porsches of the world.

The round push button for ignition, round AC vents and round dials for automatic climate control look nice and theme-like. The centrally mounted pop-up tablet-like 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system feels nice and intuitive to use and is complemented with Single-CD, MP3, Aux-in, USB, 12V Power supply, DVD, Bluetooth Function and a nicely sounding 9-Speaker Sound System from Bose. The doors with the dual tone theme including the exterior color option in them in the metallic form are a nice touch too.

Overall, the purposely designed interior layout of the Mazda MX-5 feels nice and premium and makes up for the lack of flair which is otherwise ‘too-simple’ exterior of the car.


MX-5 Exterior

The Mazda MX-5 might lack the special feel and size of an Italian or German convertible sportscar, but then, it is still a compact convertible car, which means that second glances on the road are a sureshot thing. The Mazda MX-5 is being offered in a choice of a soft top or a fastback-style retractable hardtop, with the top hiding the interiors of the two-seater sportscar with much perfection.

At the front, the Mazda MX-5 looks plain and simple with eyebrow-shaped headlamps positioned above the upper corners of a rather low-positioned front grille, with a Mazda logo sitting proudly above the grille on the front bonnet. The headlamp units do incorporate LED projector units for best possible illumination ahead. The bonnet does lack character lines but does have a nice curvaceous design which extends till the front windshield.

The side profile of the Mazda MX-5 too lacks the flair as on the front, with a mild curve extending from the front fender to the rear glass area. The body colored door-mounted rear view mirror and pullback handle on the doors look nice, however, fender mounted turn signals look archaic in today’s day and age. However, the 17-inch multispoke alloy wheels do add some drama to the otherwise simply styled side profile of the car.

At the rear, the Mazda MX-5 again feels minimalist and ‘down-to-earth’, with the low slung styling complemented with simply styled nail-shaped tail lamp cluster with LED inserts, with a characteristic horizontal line joining the tail lamps and reverse lamps integrated separately in the rear bumper being unique design elements here.

So, overall, while the Mazda MX-5 does possess the ‘wow’ factor which all the convertibles come with by default, thanks to the retractable roof, it is styled rather simply and lacks the flair and number of design elements which a car of this cadre should get.

Mazda MX-5 Engine & Fuel Consumption

Under the hood, like the overall design of the car, the Mazda MX-5 comes powered by a rather subtle and less-dramatic 2.0-litre inline four petrol engine. The engine might not sound or makes the car fly off from the rest like Porsches and Lamborghinis do, but then, it is powerful and grunty enough to make the compact Mazda MX-5 feel fast and agile.

The engine is capable enough of producing a maximum power output of 160 bhp and a peak torque output of 200 Nm, which is decently powerful for a car that measures under four meters and weighs just 1133 kgs, thus giving the Mazda MX-5 a commendable power-to-weight ratio. The engine is further complemented with the choices of either a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed torque converter. The manual variants of the car also get the limited speed differential offered as standard on them. Apart from these usual bits, the Mazda MX-5 features i-STOP engine idling start-stop function and i-ELOOP regenerative braking system, so that it doesn’t miss out on the economy front as well.

MX-5 Braking & Safety

Given its rather mass-oriented appeal rather than restricted to the super elite club, the Mazda MX-5 misses out on most of the sophisticated electrical aids and safety features. However, it is still properly equipped with dual front airbags, four-wheel ABS with EBD, lane departure warning, dynamic stability control, reverse parking sensors and engine immobilizer, making it sufficiently safe.

    I recently bought the much-coveted Mazda MX-5 anniversary edition. Although I am not a very big fan of the colour orange, the car comes in only one colour which the manufacturers call “racing orange.” To be honest, I have started liking the colour as well. The car is a stylish and elegant convertible with a metal folding roof. You get Read More

    There are people who have praised the Mazda MX-5 RF while there are some who found it to be odd in terms of appeal. In my opinion, this car was just to go and not that attractive in terms of looks and appeal but the drive handling was surely something that caught my attention. The transmission of this vehicle has Read More

    Earlier, I was never a fan of some open-top cars but now after owning Mazda MX-5 I am starting to kind of love this segment. The vehicle has gained a lot of popularity on a global basis and all its versions come equipped with rear-wheel drive and a choice of engine options. The handling of this bike is very playful Read More

    I was never a fan of open-top cars and was quite skeptical about driving the MX-5. But the vehicle has earned a global fan base and that speaks of its popularity. All versions come with rear-wheel drive and you can choose a 1.5-liter or a 2.0-litre engine. Playful handling makes the MX-5 a great performer on all types of roads. Read More

    Since my childhood I always used to fight with my father to buy an open car to ride. He used to convince me in very tricky way. Once he bought me the car on my birthday which was blue in color, I remember those twining red lights and that funny music. Later we moved on with the life but the Read More
