Mazda MX-5 Club to debut at New York Auto Show

 2016 Mazda MX-5 Club The new Mazda MX-5 Club is making its world debut at the upcoming New York Auto Show from 3 – 12 April. The MX-5 Club comes with trim-level exclusive such as BBS 17-inch gunmetal alloy wheels with 205/45R17 tyres, LSD (limited-slip differential) with SKYACTIV-MT, Bilstein shocks, Shock tower brace and front air dam and rear lip spoilers.

Also available for the MX-5 Club is a package that equips the roadster Brembo front brakes and functional aerodynamic side sill extensions and rear bumper skirt. The similarities are akin to the MX-5 Global Cup race car. All MX-5s bound for North America will come with compact LED headlights and a SKYACTIV-G 2.0-liter engine, paired to either a standard six-speed SKYACTIV-MT manual or six-speed automatic.

Standard equipment on MX-5 Club version includes Mazda Connect infotainment system with a seven-inch color touchscreen display and multi-function commander control, HD and SiriusXM Satellite Radio, two USB ports, piano black side mirrors and seatback bars and a nine-speaker Bose audio system with headrest speakers. The infotainment system enables fast and easy access to Bluetooth connectivity and audio streaming.

As we all know, the fourth-generation MX-5 is lighter, smaller, quicker and more nimble than its predecessor. The new MX-5 has adopted Mazda’s full suite of SKYACTIV Technology and KODO-Soul of Motion design. In the process, MX-5 has shed approximately 68 kilograms (150 pounds) from its predecessor, with a curb weight of 1,057 kg (2,332 lbs) when equipped with SKYACTIV-MT six-speed manual transmission or 1,080 kg (2,381 lbs) with the six-speed automatic transmission.

Along with the MX-5 Club version, there’s the MX-5 Launch Edition for the U.S. market, featuring 17-inch wheels, heated seats, automatic climate control, SiriusXM satellite radio, Mazda Connect Infotainment system with navigation, a BOSE nine-speaker audio system, i-ACTIVSENSE safety technologies, including blind spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, lane departure warning and automatic high-beam control, among other amenities.

Similar preorder launch programs for the MX-5 have begun in Japan and Europe, with Japan’s entire allotment of 2016 MX-5s expected to be sold out with its presale program. U.K. preorders have totaled nearly ten percent of last year’s 2,973 MX-5 sales in the first three weeks of the program.

Further MX-5 packaging details will be made available closer to the roadster’s summer on-sale date. For more details, log on to www.longlivetheroadster.com.
