Although the car maker refrains from giving any more information, Autocar expects this new model to be a hard-top version of the current MX-5, called the MX-5 Roadster Coupé.
The Mk4 MX-5 has been with us in soft-top guise for about a year, so it makes sense for the hard-top alternative to arrive now. If it is indeed this car, we already have a pretty good idea of what it’ll be like thanks to information given to us by Mazda late last year.
A Roadster Coupé would be slightly heavier than the 1050kg soft-top, and its starting price is likely to be around £2000 more than the £18,495 of the regular car. Despite this, it’s still expected to be the best-selling UK model.
