Exterior Design

The Mazda MX-5 facelift expresses Mazda's next-generation design DNA, while retaining the friendly appeal the roadster is known for. A single front fascia bumper is introduced that is more aggressive and aerodynamically efficient. It adopts the typical Mazda fivepoint grille, now framed by newly designed headlamps that slant inward towards the top points of the grille. The inner lenses of the turn indicator lamps at the outer corners of the each headlamp are now white for a quality look. New triangular fog lamp bezels at the lower edges of the integrated bumper are imbedded deeply in the fascia surface with thick framing for a strong, sporty look.

The facelift's silhouette is characterized by new side sills and garnishes, which are more sculptured and protrude further than before. These form strong character lines that highlight the rear wheel wells for an enhanced sporty crouch. The rear end is instantly recognisable as the Mazda MX-5, but with subtle design changes to give it a stronger appearance. The facelift's rear bumper is more integrated into the body. It slants inward and upward to be flush with the bottom of the rear lamps, which highlights bumper thickness. The lower portion of the rear fenders are more sculptured and extended downward, as they are at the front, and new rear combination lamps are introduced that have a sparking 'U' shape when illuminated by headlamps of following vehicles, for an enhanced sense of quality.
