With the all-new 2016 MX-5, we can imagine Mazda had a few design goals in mind. It would definitely need to look:
— completely fresh and unable to be mistaken for existing cars
— cool and masculine, with a mean streak that shows its performance edge
— modern and stylish; a sexy flair to fire up roadster passion
We were not completely sure about the design when first shown, but are firm believers now. How cool and sexy and mean is this little roadster in its latest dynamic photos from Spain?
Most of these cars on Euro plates are the Japanese-spec model, but they are all very similar. Slightly different taillamps on US cars are all red, while the LED light accents in the front bumpers are not yet confirmed for the US market. As someone who has never met an LED he didn’t like, we hope they make the cut for American MX-5s.
