100th Anniversary Mazda MX-5 Miata to Arrive

Brought to you by Pearson Mazda

2020 marks Mazda's 100th birthday, and to celebrate, Mazda is releasing a 100th Anniversary Edition MX-5 Miata! Mazda was founded in Hiroshima, Japan, on January 30th, 1920 by Jujiro Matsuda and originally named Toyo Cork Kogyo Co., Ltd. This name wasn't changed to Mazda until 1984. After making machine tools, Toyo Kogyo started manufacturing automobiles in 1931 and released the Mazda-Go Rickshaw while also producing weapons during World War II. In 1960, Toyo Kogyo released the R360, a 2-door 4-seat coupe. The R360 started a long line of Mazda vehicles leading up to the 100th Anniversary Edition of the MX-5.

Interior and Exterior

The 100th Anniversary MX-5 is available in Snowflake White or Pearl Mica exterior paint with your choice of a retractable fastback roof or a red soft top. Red accents can be found throughout the interior and exterior of the car. Commemorative badging is placed around the vehicle, on the fender, the wheel center caps, and even on the key fob, presented in a special edition box. The red leather interior pays homage to Mazda's first passenger vehicle, the R360, which had a two-toned color scheme.

Engine and Drivetrain

This special Miata is based on the 2020 MX-5 Grand Touring. Under the hood is a four-cylinder Skyactiv-G 2.0 engine kicking out 181 horsepower and 151 lb-ft of torque. This engine can be paired with either a Skyactiv-MT six-speed manual transmission or a quick Skyactiv-Drive six-speed automatic transmission controlled with steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters. The manual transmission will be supported by a limited-slip differential, Bilstein dampers, sport-tuned suspension, 17-inch dark silver alloy wheels, and a black roof on the retractable fastback. Inside, drivers are treated to heated leather seats, Bose audio, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and automatic climate control.
