Mazda Adds New Colors, Improved Interior for 2020 MX-5


While most of the attention was focused on Mazda’s first-ever production EV, the MX-30 at the 46th Tokyo Motor Show 2019, eagle-eyed show goers would have also noticed the updated for 2020 MX-5. Known as Roadster in Japan, it gets a wider options catalogue including a new exterior hue and soft-top color.

The most notable change to the 2020 MX-5 is the availability of Polymetal Gray Metallic as an exterior color. First making its debut on the all-new Mazda3, this color is said to “combine the hard feeling of metal with the smooth luster peculiar to resin.”

The new color aside, 2020 MX-5 adds perforation to its leather seats, the swapping of the red stitching to gray, and stainless steel scuff plates. It also adds Apple CarPlay and Android Auto to its Mazda Connect system, while the addition of Advanced Smart City Brake Support with pedestrian detection makes it even safer.

Taking a cue from the 30th Anniversary Edition model, the 2020 MX-5 gets optional forged RAYS alloy wheels (RAYS ZE40 RS) which reduces the overall weight by 3 kilograms. Opting for these sportier wheels also unlocks front Brembo brakes, too. For those who aren’t fans of RAYS wheels, the BBS wheels continue to be another option.

Fans of the Nappa leather interior will also be glad to know that aside from the brown-hued one, Mazda will now be introducing a burgundy-colored option as well.

Moreover, aside from the usual black and cherry red soft top, the 2020 MX-5 is now available with a silver-colored top as well. Opting for the “Silver Top” edition swaps the high-gloss black mirror caps to body-colored ones, while the wheels themselves move from a gun-metallic color to one with a high sheen.
