As you browse options for 2018 MX-5 specs, you will notice a unique offering for this year: the 2018 Mazda MX-5 50th Anniversary Limited Edition. This version of the popular MX-5 celebrates Mazda’s 50th anniversary in Canada. As well, it’s the automaker’sway of honoring the strong relationship it has formed with drivers in the country. This Limited-Edition model is based on the GS trim, but has its own flair and unique features to set it apart from other 2-DR convertible offerings.

Enhanced Audio

To say that the audio in the 2018 Mazda MX-5 50th Anniversary Limited Edition is enhanced is an understatement. While the MX-5 GS already has an impressive sound system, it cannot compare to that of the 50th Anniversary version. This custom Bose system is unlike anything you will find in another 2-DR convertibles. It has speakers as well as a subwoofer within the headrests for the driver and passenger. Now you can truly experience the music, even when you have the soft top open.

Round out the entertainment system with the same 7-inch colour touchscreen and MAZDA CONNECT infotainment found in the rest of the MX-5 specs. This includes HD radio, a CD player with MP3 functionality, voice-activated navigation. It also includes the HMI Commander Switch, Aha and Stitcher internet radio, two USB ports, and an auxiliary audio jack. You also get SMS text message audio for both delivery and reply.

2-DR Convertible Unique Style

The Mazda MX-5 GS 2-DR convertible is already stylish with its black cloth soft-folding top, power-operated mirrors in piano black, and LED rear combination lights, headlights, signature lighting, and daytime running lights. The 50th Anniversary Limited Edition; however, stands out with its BBS 17-inch forged alloy wheels, complete with a dark finish for a sporty look that is truly unique.

Guaranteed Comfort

Driving around in the 2018 Mazda MX-5 50th Anniversary Limited Edition will give you plenty of comfort. With the black cloth upholstery and stylish red stitching, adjustable heated seats, 6-way adjustment for the driver and 4-way adjustment for the passenger. As you drive, your hands will rest on the leather-wrapped shift knob, steering wheel, and parking brake handle.


Just like with the other MX-5 specs, the Anniversary Limited Edition uses the SKYACTIV-G 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine. This engine gives you 155 horsepower and 148 pound-feet. Thanks to the nearly perfect weight distribution of the MX-5, each horsepower goes further, giving you a superb driving experience.
