Mazda Philippines is Sneakily Previewing the 2020 MX-5

If you find yourself at The Powerplant Mall in Makati, you’re in for a treat. Mazda Philippines is sneakily previewing the 2020 MX-5 at their Mazda Premium event located at the South Court.

From afar, the only visual cue is the availability of the new Polymetal Gray exterior color—Mazda’s new trademark hue which was first seen in the all-new 2020 Mazda3 and CX-30. Once you get closer though, you’ll also see that the emblems now sport the new font type.

Inside, it’s pretty much the same roadster save for some minor detail changes. There’s now orange stitching on the seats (a nod to the MX-5’s 30th anniversary), and improved switchgear. Of course, since this is 2020, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are now standard.

As for comfort and convenience features, the 2020 MX-5 gets cruise control for the very first time (at least for the automatic variant that’s on display) along with automatic emergency braking which Mazda officially calls Smart City Brake Support (SCBS).

Since this is just a preview of the 2020 MX-5, Mazda Philippines still isn’t ready to release any pricing or variant details yet. However, do expect a price increase given the new stuff you see here. If you’re not really sold on the new color or features, you’ll be glad to know that there are still a limited number of 2019 units in stock.
