The 2020 Mazda MX-5 Range Gets Updated with the New GT Sport Tech Grade
Good news to all fans of Mazda MX-5. The 2020 version is now available to order, with both the convertible and RF Retractable Fastback arriving in dealerships this February.
The complete line up will feature 10 models--four Convertibles and six RFs. The 130-hp 1.5-litre Convertible is offered in SE-L and Sport trim, while the 181-hp 2.0-litre Skyactiv-G engine will be placed in the Sport Tech and the new range-topping GT Sport Tech trim.
Meanwhile, the SE-L and Sport trim RF’s are powered by the 1.5-litre engine, while Sport Tech and GT Sport Tech come with the more powerful 2.0-litre engine. In addition, the 2.0-litre RFs in both trim levels come with the option to choose an automatic gearbox.
The 2020 Mazda Mx-5 now has a new model: the GT Sport Tech. It is marked out by 17-inch BBS alloy wheels and Burgundy Nappa leather seats, while across the whole range the MX-5 is available with Polymetal Grey Metallic paint for the first time.
The updated version of Mazda’s sports car also benefits from extra standard safety equipment: from Sport models and above, some of its features include Front Smart City Brake Support, Lane Departure Warning System, Rear Smart City Brake Support, Traffic Sign Recognition and Driver Attention Alert. While Blind Spot Monitoring System with Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Adaptive LED headlights and a reversing camera are standard on Sport Tech and GT Sport Tech models.
Masashi Nakayama, program manager and chief designer for the MX-5, said:
“The key phrase for our development of the fourth-generation MX-5 was ‘Innovate in order to preserve’, and I strongly believe that this model’s ongoing appeal is the result of our unceasing commitment to refining the vehicle over its 30-year history. We intend to keep refining the car, seeking out new ways to make it even more thrilling and satisfying to drive, so it can continue to offer customers unique excitement and cement its position as a cultural icon.”
