The limited-edition model will be revealed to the public alongside the folding hard-top RF, and follows the release of the MX-5 Sport Recaro, which arrived earlier this year. The Icon, like the Recaro edition, will have its production limited to just 600 cars.
The Icon is based on the Mazda MX-5 SE-L Nav, which comes as standard with sat-nav and climate control. However, the Icon gains parking sensors, leather seats and rain-sensing wipers. Visually, the Icon receives bespoke design cues including a rear spoiler, front skirt and gunmetal alloys.
Under the bonnet, the Icon has the same 131bhp 1.5-litre Skyactiv engine as the regular car; it's capable of accelerating the MX-5 from 0-62mph in 8.3sec.
The new model is the third MX-5 to carry the Icon name, and that low build number means it’s also the most exclusive Icon yet produced, too.
Order books for the MX-5 Icon and MX-5 RF are now open.
The RF is expected to be the best-selling MX-5 in the UK, and as such Mazda is encouraging those wanting one to place their orders sooner rather than later.
