New Mazda Car

At the 75th Geneva International Motor Show (Salon International de l’Auto in Geneva) several new cars were seen. This includes the new two-seater Mazda MX-5 from the Mazda Motor Corporation. It is the third generation evolution of the world’s best-selling lightweight sports car (known as the Roadster in Japan) which first debuted at the Chicago Auto Show in February 1989.

The new car is equipped with a newly developed 2.0-liter MZR engine for all markets. However, models with a 1.8-liter engine would be available for the European market.

It will be available in 8 exterior colors. Regarding the interior, base models will have black upholstery and a matte-silver metallic finish. Higher-grade models offer two choices: a combination of saddle-tan and black leather or black leather in a monotone treatment.

As for the safety aspect, the new MX-5 comes with the Mazda Advanced Impact-energy Distribution and Absorption System. It also has newly developed side airbags and a larger-volume head protection airbag.

The car runs on 205/45WR-17 radial tires.

The all-new MX-5 will be launched in global markets in the latter half of 2005.
