About

The Mk1 Mazda MX-5 was introduced in 1989 and had a 1.6-litre petrol engine. It had a classic front-engine, rear-wheel-drive, 2-door convertible layout was a hit, mainly because it was such fun to drive. In 1994 a 1.8-litre engine was added to the range, while a reduced output 1.6-litre model was also introduced. The Mk 2 model was launched in 1998, with the iconic pop-up headlamps absent. In 2000, the facelifted ‘Mk 2.5’ model was released, with subtle changes to the body and interior and an uprated 1.8-litre engine. A wide range of standard and optional equipment is available within the Mazda MX-5 range, including central locking, electric windows, air conditioning, and airbags.
