2013 Mazda Mx-5 Miata

2013 Mazda MX-5 Miata details announced ahead of U.S. launch

Mazda has announced details on the upgraded Mazda MX-5 Miata as the roadster makes its launch in Japan today.

Mazda has upgraded the new Mazda MX-5 Miata and has announced full details today as it makes its official launch in Japan. The refreshed two-seat roadster goes on sale today at all Mazda showrooms in Japan. The U.S. version is expected to arrive here in North America before the end of the year. The updated open-top sports car gets an aggressive new look and should be more fun to drive than the outgoing model.

The new upgrades start up front

The front of the MX-5 has been redesigned to have a more aggressive look with a larger front grille opening. It also gets a new front fog light bezel and a new front chin spoiler to add to the new look. The sports car will feature a new Dolphin Gray Mica body color, but the Metropolitan Gray Mica is gone forever. The 2013 Mazda Mx-5 will be available as an RS with a power retractable hard top, or the classic RS soft top version.

Inside, the new roadster will feature a new color, Glossy Dark Gray, that is used on the interior panels and steering wheel bezel. The leather seats will also come in a new tan color to contrast the Dark Gray. The sides of the seats will get a two-tone black treatment and a combination of Alcantara and black leather seat cover materials are available.
