We’ve only just revealed to you the Malaysian prices for the 2015 Mazda MX-5 SkyActiv along with some key specifications that’ll come along with it, but now, the praise-worthy roadster has been spotted on our streets by a Mazda dealer.
As you can see, the fourth generation (ND) Mazda MX-5 is absolutely gorgeous, seen here in a Soul Red paint finish. From the rear, we see the removable fabric roof which can be stowed manually behind the driver.
We also get a shot of the engine bay that shows us the SkyActiv-G 2.0-litre engine which will power the MX-5. As we’ve mentioned earlier, the spec sheet provided to us revealed paddle shifters, a strong indicator that the SkyActive-DRIVE six-speed torque converter automatic transmission is most probably fitted here, and sending drive to the rear wheels.
Although there wasn’t a shot of the car’s dashboard but merely its seats and centre console, we can roughly make out the Commander Control knob for the MZD Connect infotainment system, along with the gearshift that further enforces the belief that an automatic transmission lurks underneath.
RM226,376 is what you’ll have to pony up to own the CBU MX-5 roadster in its sole variant. Keep in mind that the final details will only be revealed on launch day.
