New MX5 To Take On Goodwood Hill Climb



The highly anticipated 4th generation Mazda MX-5, the latest version of the world’s bestselling roadster, features all the character, style and fun this iconic car is famous for. A huge contingency of Irish make the annual pilgrimage to the Goodwood Festival of Speed and this year visitors will have the opportunity to see the all-new MX-5 in action as it takes to the spectacular Goodwood hill during the Moving Motor Show on the 25th June. Like other current Mazda models they have added SKYACTIV and what they call KODO-Soul of Motion design.
The 2016 MX-5 is smaller, lighter and more aggressive than its predecessor, with the base MX-5 Sport expected to outperform the quickest 3rd gen model. However, even with the focus on delivering pure driving pleasure, the 2016 MX-5 has more creature comforts and a more functional interior than its predecessor. We got up close to the MX-5 at the Geneva Motorshow and it really is a pretty little car. Our editor Ian Beatty drives a MK1 MX-5 and loves it. They really are a timeless piece of machinery and we anticipate the new MX-5 will be even better. The Goodwood Festival of Speed takes place from the 26-28th June and the MX-5 will be just one of the many highlights.
