Mazda Debuts Updated 2013 MX-5 Miata in Japan

Recently, auto brand Mazda debuted a refreshed version of its MX-5 Miata in Japan, where it is known as the Mazda Roadster. And though the vehicle hasn't been officially announced for the U.S. market, there's a good chance we could be seeing a very similar version in the future.

The 2013 Mazda MX-5 Miata doesn't include huge edits, but it does have several minor ones to hold it over until its big overhaul in 2014. First of all, it's much more agile due to its new, lighter front bumper, active bonnet, 17-inch aluminum wheels, and even its lighter internal wiring. As far as design is concerned, the new MX-5 Miata features an evolved version of the Nagare design language that's reminiscent of the current generation of Mazda3 models (available now at our greater Knoxville dealership). The Power Retractable Hard Top (PRHT) and the soft top Roadster (MX-5 Miata) variant are distinguished by their silver trim and detailing and black trim and detailing, respectively.

Of course, Mazda has also made some edits to the inside of the vehicle. Inside, there are new trim colors and materials to delight drivers and passengers, while the manual transmission models have been given enhanced control of throttle management to also keep them comfortable in their seats. A special new feature enhances pedestrian safety. It's called an "Active Bonnet," and it pops up during frontal collisions to cushion pedestrians against head trauma should they find themselves in an unlucky situation.
