Geneva Preview: Mazda MX-5 20th Anniversary Edition Revealed

Mazda doesn’t appear to be keeping any secrets for the Geneva Auto Show in March. The Japanese automaker has already divulged photos and specs on the new Mazda5 and facelifted Mazda6, and now it has given us a first look at the MX-5 20th Anniversary Edition.

Celebrating the car’s 20 years of inexpensive fun, we expected a little more from this package. Then again, at least the 20th Anniversary Edition will be affordable. Just 2000 will be built for Europe (the model is not confirmed for North America), based on the less-powerful 1.8-liter engine with a 0-60 mph time of 9.9 seconds. Added goodies include a new brace for the front suspension, some badging and stainless steel kick-plates with the model’s production number. It will be offered in three colors, ‘True Red’, ‘Aurora Blue’ and ‘Crystal White Pearl’.
