Mazda MX-5 2020 teased: Update inbound for popular sports car

The MX-5 was last updated in September last year, with a punchier 2.0-litre engine ushered in, among other upgrades.

Mazda Australia has confirmed that an update for its MX-5 sports car is in the works, although no details on it have been released at this time.

Aside from confirming on its own website that a new roadster is inbound, the Japanese company has invited buyers to register their interest in “the most advanced MX-5”.

What exactly makes the upgraded MX-5 more advanced than the current model remains to be seen, with CarsGuide attempting to contact Mazda Australia to see if it could shed any light on it.

Given the existing MX-5 launched in September last year ushered in a smaller, more expensive line-up with a longer list of standard equipment and punchier naturally aspirated four-cylinder engines – including a range-topping 135kW/205Nm 2.0-litre unit – changes are likely to be minor.

That said, the ND-series MX-5 could be line for refreshed exterior styling – likely just redesigned bumpers – as it has been around for five years now, making the case for a mid-life facelift stronger.
