Mazda's new MX-5: Now revealed!-new2016mazdamiatamx5prototypespiedforthefirsttimejapan_2.jpg

Mazda has stated the new MX-5 will look like nothing we’ve seen so far and the spyshots come to confirm the same.

The new MX-5 is rumored to be 100 kgs lighter.

Other details remain minimal at this point, so lets wait & watch.

The new MX-5 is launched. The headlights could have been a little bigger, but the small Mazda was never about looks, isn't it?

Looks good. As a former owner of 1999 model, I hope the drive is still about that pure connection that you feel with the car. You feel so good just rowing through the gearbox even in city traffic. I wouldn't mind driving one even in our traffic conditions.

Smaller and lighter than its predecessor, 50/50 weight distribution, rear-wheel-drive, 6 speed manual gearbox, open top, relatively high profile wheels and LSD as standard. Just wow! The perfect roadster? You bet!

Here is Henry Catchpole with the impressive new MX-5



My only complaint, those narrow headlights. But we will get used to it quite soon I guess. Well done Mazda!
