Mazda’s MX-5 has been bolstered with a new range topping trim level that’s now on sale.
New for the roadster is GT Sport Tech, which brings a host of new features to one of the UK’s most popular sports cars. Fresh additions to this grade include 17-inch BBS alloy wheels and burgundy Nappa leather seats.
New safety equipment that now comes as standard across the whole MX-5 range includes lane departure warning, traffic sign recognition, driver attention alert plus front and rear ‘Smart City Brake Support’ which aims to reduce the risk of low-speed collisions. Building on that further, Sport Tech and GT Sport Tech models benefit from adaptive LED headlights as well as a reversing camera.
Unaltered is the engine sitting underneath the car. GT Sport Tech is available exclusively with Mazda’ 2.0-litre MX-5, with this four-cylinder engine producing 181bhp and 205Nm of torque and sent to the rear wheels via the choice of an ultra-slick six-speed manual gearbox or an automatic alternative.See available MX-5 Deals
The result is a car capable of 0-60mph in 6.3 seconds (manual) before going on to a 136mph top speed. Also available on other trim grades is a 1.5-litre option.
Pricing for the 2020 Mazda MX-5 range kicks off at £23,795, with new GT Sport Tech models available from £29,895.
