Limited to 150 units, the MX-5 R-Sport is based on the current 1.5-litre 130hp Sport trim and features unique 16-inch Rays alloys, gloss black mirrors and a grey cloth-top.
The MX-5 R-Sport special edition has arrived in Mazda UK’s re-opened dealerships. Limited to just 150 examples, this special edition MX-5 Convertible features Polymetal Grey metallic paint and a grey soft-top hood, while 16-inch Rays gunmetal alloy wheels and gloss black mirror caps finish the unique exterior look of this special edition.
Inside the R-Sport there’s burgundy Nappa leather seats with silver stitching, ensuring the interior has the same bespoke feel as the exterior. Based on the 1.5-litre 130hp Sport trim, the MX-5 R-Sport is the latest example of Mazda’s long tradition of offering personalised, limited volume MX-5s.
The R-Sport’s standard equipment tally includes navigation, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, cruise control, heated seats and climate control.
With a well-earned reputation for enjoyable drivability throughout its four generations since 1989, all 2020 Mazda MX-5 models – including the R-Sport – retain the same award-winning chassis and mechanical setup. Helped by the car’s lightness, performance hasn’t come at the cost of efficiency, as fully homologated to the WLTP test cycle and equipped with Mazda’s i-ELOOP and i-stop kinetic recovery and stop-start technology as standard it emits 142g/km.
