Mazda MX-5 R-Sport Special Edition price and pictures: an exclusive convertible roadster

The new MX-5 soft-top will be limited to just 150 examples

Mazda’s iconic two-seater roadster, the MX-5, has been released as an exclusive convertible model for 2020.

Limited to a production run of just 150 examples, the new Mazda MX-5 R-Sport Special Edition features Polymetal Grey metallic paint, a grey soft-top hood and 16-inch RAYS gunmetal alloy wheels to finish the unique exterior look. 

The Polymetal Grey colour is a new edition to the 2020 Mazda MX-5 line up and on the R-Sport it is matched to piano black wing mirrors. Inside, the R-Sport features burgundy Nappa leather seats with silver stitching, ensuring the interior has the same bespoke feel as the exterior. 

Based on the 1.5-litre Sport, the R-Sport’s standard equipment includes navigation, Apple CarPlay and Android AutoTM, cruise control, heated seats and climate control. 

Jeremy Thomson, managing director of Mazda Motors UK, said: “When it comes to driver engagement, the current generation MX-5 has already established itself as a benchmark sports car, and with the 2020 Mazda MX-5, and now the R-Sport special edition, we continue to offer one of the most exciting to drive cars money can buy. 

“The MX-5 is Mazda’s brand icon and it embodies all that is great about our products, its fun to drive character has strengthened the bond between Mazda and its customers for over 30 years and the 2020 model continues this unswerving dedication to delivering an affordable, engaging, world-class sports car, while the R-Sport continues our long heritage of offering uniquely styled yet affordable limited edition versions.”

In addition to the R-Sport, the updated 2020 Mazda MX-5 range features a ten-model line-up - four convertibles and six RFs.

Price 

The Mazda MX-5 R-Sport Special Edition costs £27,700 and UK deliveries will begin once the current retail restrictions come to an end.
