Mazda press release :

Continuing to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of the world’s best-selling roadster, Mazda has introduced a new ‘summer special edition’ version of its iconic sportscar, named the Mazda MX-5 Miyako.  

The new model, which is  on sale from 1 July, is

available in two versions – the 1.8i Miyako soft-top priced at £18,385 (on-the-road) and the more powerful 2.0i Miyako roadster coupe with the world’s fastest folding powered roof (up or down in 12 seconds), priced at £20,885 (on-the-road).

The name ‘Miyako’ is taken from the idyllic Japanese holiday island of Miyako-jima, considered by many to be one of the most beautiful spotsin Japan and the perfect location for open-top motoring. 

The new Miyako is generously equipped with the interior benefitting from unique Medici premium perforated black leather trim with a red underlay and stitching, special badging, floor mats and climate control air-conditioning.  The exterior includes front fog lamps, larger 17-inchalloy wheels, a front suspension strut brace (for improved steering response), and free metallic paint.

“The new Mazda MX-5 Miyako will have extra appeal to a broader range of customers, including those who recognise the uniquely pure driving pleasure this Mazda continues to deliver, and those who aspire to owninga special edition model,” comments Mark Cameron, sales director, Mazda UK.  

“This is the first special edition model based on the upgraded MX-5 that we have offered on both soft‑top and roadster coupe body styles andI am sure it will attract new buyers to our brand.  Both models also represent great value, with the 2.0i Miyako costing just £590 more than the entry level 2.0 SE model.”

The 1.8i 126ps Miyako soft-top accelerates to 62mph in a brisk 9.9 seconds, while the 2.0i Miyako roadster coupe with its 160ps engine undercuts that time by two seconds.  Combined mpg and CO2 ratings are 40.4/38.2mpg and 167/177g/km, respectively.  Both Miyako models carry generous equipment levels with many features as standard including: remote central locking, a leather steering wheel with audio controls, an MP3 compatible audio system with six speakers and auxiliary(AUX) jack input, as well as heated electric mirrors and electric frontwindows, a Thatcham Category 1 alarm and immobiliser.
