What You Need to Know About the 30th Anniversary Mazda MX-5Oct 28th, 2019
It’s been thirty years since the Mazda MX-5 first rolled off the production line. Now in its fourth generation, the MX-5 is still the benchmark for sports car purists worldwide. To celebrate the monumental milestone, a limited-release Mazda MX-5 30th Anniversary Edition is available.
With exclusive options and features, and only 3,000 units available worldwide, you’ll need to see Budds’ Mazda in Oakville to get yours.
All-New 30th Anniversary Looks
Mazda says it’s to evoke the “breaking dawn of an exciting new day”. The bold new colour, Racing Orange, looks incredible according to any logic. Developed specifically for the special-edition MX-5, this hue of orange is only one part of the equation.
The 2019 Mazda MX-5 30th Anniversary Edition rides on Rays forged aluminum rims developed exclusively for this model. Peering through the multi-spoke wheels are Brembo front brake calipers and Nissin rear brake calipers, all finished in the same Racing Orange.
The Racing Orange theme continues inside the convertible too. Orange highlights set off the interior with accents on the seats, dashboard, door trim, and on the shift lever.
The Mazda MX-5 30th Anniversary Edition gives you exclusive features not found in the rest of the MX-5 lineup. You won’t want to miss out on features like:
• Recaro seats designed to keep you firmly yet comfortably planted inside.
• Bilstein dampers for those who opt for a manual-transmission model.
• Bose AudioPilot 2 sounds system with nine speakers.
• Apple CarPlay and Android Auto for smartphone connectivity.
• Numbered 30th Anniversary badging.
The 30th Anniversary Edition MX-5 is available in two configurations: soft-top convertible and retractable hard-top convertible. You can’t go wrong with either one.
Well-Equipped Compact Sports Car
All of the special-edition features are in addition to already remarkable options in the MX-5 lineup. Advanced driver-assist systems like Advanced Blind Spot Monitoring, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Smart City Brake Support and Lane Departure Warning System are standard on all MX-5 trims. The 2019 MX-5 20th Anniversary also shares Adaptive Front-lighting System and Traffic Sign Recognition System with the GT trim.
Heated seats, navigation system in a 7-inch colour touchscreen display with Mazda Connect, and SiriusXM satellite radio are all part of the package as well.
You can’t neglect the powertrain either. Like all 2019 Mazda MX-5 models, a 181-hp Skyactiv-G 2.0L 4-cylinder is tucked neatly under the hood. Take your pick of either the Skyactiv-MT 6-speed manual transmission or a 6-speed automatic transmission with manual-shift mode and Drive Selection switch.
