Mazda MX-5

Perhaps as proof that the United States is one of the Mazda MX-5’s biggest markets, the Japanese carmaker is coming out with a variant that has been equipped with features you’d want in a proper sports car.

Called the MX-5 Club, the car is equipped with:

* 17-inch gunmetal alloy wheels wrapped in 205/45 tires;

* Limited-slip differential when equipped with Skyactiv-MT;

* Bilstein shocks when equipped with Skyactiv-MT;

* Shock tower brace when equipped with Skyactiv-MT; and

* Front air dam and rear lip spoilers.

The MX-5 Club comes with a seven-inch touchscreen display; multifunction commander control that works with the Mazda Connect infotainment system; satellite radio; two USB ports; piano-black side mirrors and seatback bars; and nine-speaker Bose audio system with headrest speakers.

An optional package is also available for the MX-5 Club, which equips the roadster with forged 17-inch BBS wheels, Brembo front brakes, and aerodynamic side sill extensions and rear bumper skirts that were previewed on the MX-5 Global Cup race car.

"The MX-5 is the heart and soul of Mazda, serving as a beacon for the rest of our lineup with its fun-to-drive dynamics, design and technologies," said Mazda North American Operations president and chief executive Jim O'Sullivan. "Jinba ittai--oneness between driver and machine--defines the MX-5. It's a philosophy that has led every decision we've made toward bringing the MX-5 back to the basics that made drivers fall in love with it 26 years ago when the first-generation model debuted."
