The designer, who presented the car in California, is right when he points out that with the conception of a new MX5 is accompanied a relatively large responsibility, especially as teams from Europe and especially Japan are involved.

Engine displaced slightly backwards and lowered.

If you retain too much of the style, the car is considered to be old-fashioned, if one risks too much in the design, one has given away the original on the car. So it depends on the balance and the appears to have succeeded according to the first pictures.

And although the front end in front of the engine tends down significantly again, it has become still a little shorter all in all, at quite unchanged wheelbase.For the relative narrowness in the interior, not much has changed. After all, the distribution of masses is now probably completely balanced front and rear.

Engine bonnet and luggage compartment lid made of aluminum.

Three generations there have been in 25 years. One refers to Austin-Healey Sprite, MGB and Triumph Spitfire, all of them British icons of a bygone time. To trace them, has already stopped before this fourth generation.The focus is on the future, for example, with the brand's own SKYACTIV Technology.

Front side frames and bumpers made of aluminum

No, this design has not let 'buy' itself unconditionally. It resembles the other Mazdas in a soothing lesser extent. Typical of the successful combination of old and new, are perhaps the rear lights (Figure 7). In any case, the convertible (Pardon: the roadster) has preserved a certain independence in the Group.

100 kg more lightweight than its predecessor!?

A gearshift lever almost exactly above the transmission, the rear axle almost too complex for a roadster. One can already imagine the successful interaction with a highly compressed if necessary direct injection engine and six gears. The engine is so far to the rear that the steering must always be located prior to that. 09/14
