Mazda MX-5 25th Anniversary Front2015 Mazda MX – 5 Miata, this 25th Anniversary Edition is likely the last special edition to be offered in third-generation guise. In addition to cosmetic changes, this version of the Miata receives engine tweaks designed to give it a more free-revving nature and more responsive acceleration. Additionally, those versions equipped with a manual gearbox will also get Bilstein shock absorbers.Color is the focus of many of the cosmetic changes to the car. Each one of the 2015 MX-5 Miata 25th Anniversary Edition models is painted Soul Red, a premium paint color previously unavailable for Mazda’s roadster

is a two seats roadster that may come redesigned on the market for its twenty fifth anniversary. In 25 years, the Mazda MX-5 Miata has become a cult icon and entered the Guinness Book of World Records as the best-selling, two-seat, open-top sports car . But that is old news, and we are here to show you just what Mazda plans to do in celebration of the Miata’s 25th year in existence. The third era of the car is at the stop of its everyday living cycle which is the past redesign, though the following model anticipated new fourth generation. The automaker is launching a 25th Anniversary Edition at the New York Auto Show to show buyers just how important the roadster is to Mazda.

This special-edition MX-5 Miata is based on the power retractable hard top (PRHT) version of the car, giving this drop-top a nice and quiet cabin when the top is up — I noted this in my recent test drive of the Club version . The 25th Anniversary Edition will be exclusively available in Soul Red Metallic — a proper color for the iconic sports car — with contrasting black mirrors, A-pillars and top. On the inside, the special model gets off-white leather seating and door trim, and a hand-finished decorative panel.

MX-5 Miata Review Engine

2015 Mazda MX-5 Miata 25th Anniversary Edition EngineThe 2015 mazda mx-5 miata 25th anniversary editionmodel uses the same 2.0-liter engine that the rest of the 2015 MX-5 lineup will use. The difference is that this engine will feature special, hand-selected pistons, connecting rods and flywheel. Sure, these shouldn’t increase power any, but Mazda claims they will allow the engine to rev more freely, thus improving acceleration and response.

2015 Mazda MX – 5 Miata,Under the hood, things will remain the same, as it will feature the 2.0-liter, four-cylinder mill that cranks out 167 horsepower and 140 pound-feet of torque when mated to the standard six-cog manual. This engine is mated to 5 /6 – velocity handbook transmission and 6 – speed computerized transmission. Gasoline consumption according to the EPA metropolis / highway is 22/28 mpg ( 5 – speed manual ), 21/28 mpg ( 6 – velocity handbook ) and 21/28 mpg (computerized). Power transmission is carried to the rear wheels and it has a rigid suspension. The future era of cars anticipated new engine. Other technical specs are going to be announced later on.You can also opt for the six-speed auto transmission, but that results in 11 fewer ponies under the hood. This special MX-5 also gets the added benefit of Bilstein dampers to keep it glued to the road in the twist.

MX 5 Miata Specs and Interior

2015 Mazda MX-5 Miata 25th Anniversary Edition InteriorThis special version of the Miata is equipped with Almond leather and door trim with exposed red stitching, and Black leather covers the steering wheel, door panel armrests, parking brake handle, and shifter surround. The seats face a dashboard decorated with a red trim panel featuring a hand-painted Piano Black gradation effect. Additional upgrades include Liquid Metal Satin chrome accents, aluminum alloy pedals, stainless steel door scuff plates, 25th Anniversary badges, and a plaque etched with the car’s serialized production number.

Miata has great administration techniques, while the inside is little so there is not significantly room for cargo space and provides greater insulation and stability.The Almond leather seating and door trim panels are exclusive to this 25th Anniversary Edition MX-5, and the definitely kick the interior up to a new level. Additionally, the exclusive, hand-finished decorative panel and satin chrome louver rings are simply incredible.

Mazda Car Pictures RearThe Brilliant Black accents make their way into the cabin as well, tying the interior and exterior together. You can hue find this on seatback garnish. The black accents continue on to the leather-wrapped handbrake, steering wheel, armrests and shifter boot.

Unfortunately, there are no real modifications to this car other than the exclusive colors inside and out, the hand-worked decorative panel and badges, but it is still a nice send-off for the NC-generation MX-5.

As for the Outside, it reserves the spirit of sport which has a smooth roof and provides new design and style. 25th Anniversary badges with the particular serial number for each car on it adorns the front fenders. Typically, these types of badges are reserved for the cabin, but apparently, Mazda wants people to know that this is a special model — just in case that deep Soul Metallic Red body with Brilliant Black A-pillars, windshield surround, mirrors and hardtop doesn’t give it away. On the corners are 17-inch aluminum-alloy wheels coated in Dark Gunmetal and wrapped tightly in 205/45R17, W-Rated rubber.
