Mazda Australia has increased the pricing of its current-generation MX-5 sports car.
All variants are now $500 more expensive, with a Mazda Australia spokesperson telling CarsGuide the roadster’s price rises came partly in response to exchange-rate pressures.
As such, the MX-5 now ranges in price from $35,890 to $49,900 plus on-road costs (see full pricing table below), with its specification unchanged.
A 97kW/152Nm 1.5-litre naturally aspirated four-cylinder petrol engine still exclusively powers the unnamed entry-level variants, which are of the soft-top variety.
Conversely, a 135kW/205Nm 2.0-litre unit is used by all other versions.
Both engines come with the choice of a six-speed manual or a six-speed torque-converter automatic, and drive is sent to the rear wheels only.
Two body styles are available: a soft-top and a hard-top, dubbed RF. Both can be had in flagship GT form, which is only matched to the 2.0-litre unit.
