2020 MAZDA MX-5 MIATA QUICK TAKES TESTDRIVENOW OVERVIEW
The 2020 MX-5 Miata offers more amenities while maintaining the necessary characteristics of a driver’s car: lightweight, nimble and most importantly, fun-to-drive.
Advancing from the MX-5 Sport, fans have the option of the harder-edged MX-5 Club or the luxurious MX-5 Grand Touring depending on what suits their lifestyle and interests. Both the MX-5 Club and MX-5 Grand Touring are offered in a soft top as well as in a RF – retractable fastback – configuration. The MX-5 RF can open or close its roof in a remarkable 13 seconds; providing the look and feel of both a sporty coupe and an iconic convertible. MX-5 Club and MX-5 Grand Touring are now available in Mazda’s new Polymetal Gray exterior color. Exclusive to MX-5 Club models with manual transmission, Mazda offers a Brembo/BBS Recaro Package that helps add a little more thrill to the nimble roadster. This package features Brembo front brakes, BBS 17-inch Dark Gunmetal forged wheels, heated Recaro Sports Seats and black aero kit that includes side sill extensions and rear bumper skirt. For the MX-5 Club RF, this package includes a hand-painted black roof.
