MX5 revised range for 2020

Interesting snippet from EVO website, which suggests that Mazda will be revising the range for 2020, and a look at the configurator on the Mazda UK website confirms this.
They also appear to have dropped the entry level SE+ version, so I'm very pleased I bought mine when I did.

They did get it a bit wrong the headlights and safety package have been available on the 2 litre SportNav since 2015 as a factory fitted extra and the reversing camera again as a factory fit extra since September 2018.

The prices have gone up on the cars to cover 50% of the emmission fine.

Interesting about the about the SE, that was the nearest thing to the MK1 and with the price increase to the cars, you would have thought they would have left that in the range to keep the price sensitive PCP and lease market supplied.

They have also restricted the colour palette further this year, to the inevitable Soul Red (but not on the top version) two greys, black, white and one blue.
These are the sort of colours I’d expect on a dull executive saloon car, not my idea of sports car colours.

Maybe the MX5's time is limited.

Merc are running out the SLK/SLC and Audi the TT in a year or so.

Reason too much development work to do in order to get electric/hybrid SUV's on to the market.

Mazda are a small company in the big picture and may well not have the money to develop an NE going forward.

Exactly what he said! 8) The world has gone suv mad, and I refuse to call them SUV...what the hell is sporty about them? They're all dullsville MPV's with the driving experience of a log. The world has also gone mad on the whole EV thing cos it's oh so enviromentally friendly. Eh, no, it's really not! It costs millions to produce the damn things, millions to try and put even the remotest suggestion of a charging network, and all the time it's causing an unsustainable drain on our electric grid. All it does it moves the pollution from the road to the power stations.

So, I think they should abandon the whole ev/suv/mpv thing and get back to making real cars for real drivers! If I wanted an EV, Id get a job as a 1970'8 milkman and drive a bloody milk float! lol Rant officially over! :D
