Mazda Releases First Info on Upgraded 2013 Roadster, a.k.a. MX-5 Miata
10 July 2012 - Autoblog
Mazda has released a spate of information on its 2013 Roadster, known domestically as the MX-5 Miata.
As you may recall, images of the newest refresh made their way to the internet via a few snapped brochure photos. As it turns out, those shots were spot on. The 2013 Japanese domestic model will wear a heavily revised front fascia with a version of the five-point grille we first saw on the Spyder Concept. Engineers have also reworked the convertible's throttle and brake booster for improved control as well.
As we heard before, the JDM Roadster will also come with an active hood that will raise if sensors detect an impact at certain speeds to reduce the chances of pedestrian injury. New interior and exterior colors have also made their way to the option sheet for the first time as well.
