Mazda has unveiled its ‘accessories concept’ range for the MX-5 two-seat roadster, and it is likely to be available in Australia at the launch of the fourth-generation MX-5.

On the styling front is the Aero Kit, featuring gloss black front air dam, side sill extensions, rear bumper skirt and rear lip spoiler.

Complementing the black accents of the Aero Kit are forged black 17 x 7J, 45mm-offset BBS wheels wrapped in 205/45R17 tyres (although Mazda hasn’t provided rubber supplier details as yet).

Brembo brakes on the front rotors will also be an option, showcased by the red paint applied to all four brake calipers.

And it wouldn’t be an MX-5 without an optional luggage rack, made of carbon fibre and weighing just over a kilo.

The Mazda MX-5 ND will be released in the United States with a 116kW/200Nm version of the 2.0-litre SkyActiv-G in-line four-cylinder engine as standard. Australians will have the option of a cheaper base variant, featuring a 1.5-litre engine producing around 100kW/150Nm (to be confirmed) or the larger and more expensive 2.0 litre SkyActiv-G.

    1.5 litres?? Forced induction at all? Might be faster to get out and run. I hope it’s not heavy! Looks good

      No forced induction at this point. Mazda is still going with the high-compression, nat-atmo Skyactiv theme as it believes it offers the best blend of response, performance and efficiency.

    I great looking car for sure but I’m not sure how “timeless” the new styling is going to be. Past styling efforts were perhaps fairly reserved which I think had the benefit of ensuring that they aged gracefully. More aggressive styling means a higher chance of looking “old” sooner which and given that Mazda may want to use this current shape for some years, may not be such as wise move.
