Mazda has subtly updated the MX-5 sports car with a new look and extra equipment. The refreshed model is set to cost from £18,495.

The slightly more rounded front-end not only keeps the MX-5 looking fresh but also helps to improve pedestrian safety. Mazda has also included an active bonnet that raises to create a crumple zone in case you hit a pedestrian, protecting their head from hitting the engine block through the bonnet.

Subtle changes have been made to the way the MX-5 drives, including more responsive acceleration and improvements to the amount of feedback drivers will get from the brake pedal.

The engine line-up is unchanged, consisting of 2.0-litre and 1.8-litre petrols, but new equipment sets the facelifted roadster apart from the old car. Climate control and glossy grey interior inserts are now fitted to every model, while Sport Tech models get new metal pedals and an auto-dimming mirror.

Sport Tech Nav is a new version, with TomTom sat-nav as standard, plus iPod and Bluetooth connectivity.

Buyers can also choose from a range of new colours, including Sparkling Black Mica and Crystal White Pearlescent.
