|Mazda's popular MX-5 roadster will get an innovative new retractable hardtop roof. |
Mazda Motor Corporation will make the global debut of the Mazda MX-5 Miata Power Retractable Hard Top
at the 2006 British International Motor Show in London, England. Since its launch in 1990, and with subsequent generations launched in 1999 and 2006, MX-5 Miata has always been available with an optional removable hardtop, but this is the first time the car will be available with a power-operated retractable hard top.
The British International Motor Show will be held in London from Tuesday, July 18, through Sunday, July 30, 2006.
Featuring a new, unique power retractable hard top roof, this is an all-new addition to the third-generation Mazda MX-5 which launched in late 2005 as a 2006 model. This new Mazda MX-5 provides a unified sense of driving exhilaration, ready to spread the fun of lightweight sports cars in diverse and distinct new ways, regardless of the weather.
"Jinba Ittai" - or 'rider and horse as one' is the essence of Mazda MX-5, the expression reflecting the emotional connection between a horse and rider.
