The 30 th Anniversary of the Mazda Miata MX - 5 is here. Our appreciation and dedication to its roadster heritage has never been stronger. Thank you for your interest in the 2019 Mazda MX - 5 Miata 30 th Anniversary . We will add you to our waitling list and let you know if you are matched to any units.

Redline Reviews . In February, 1989 # Mazda introduced the best-selling roadster in the world in Chicago, the # MX 5 Miata. Hard to believe that 30 years has gone by since then and the special edition 30 th Anniversary model will only be built in racing orange with only 500 coming to America.

a red car parked on the side of the road: 2019 Mazda MX-5 30th Anniversary © Provided by Motoring Research Ltd 2019 Mazda MX-5 30th Anniversary The Mazda MX-5 has turned 30 and to celebrate, this vivid orange 30th Anniversary limited edition is now available in dealers. Be quick: there are only 3,000 globally and 550 for the UK. Half of our allocation has already been sold, without anyone even driving it. Such is the appeal of this marvellous little sports car, which gets better with every passing year.

Those buyers haven’t gone in blind. The MX-5 30th Anniversary is based on the range-topping 184hp Sport. This was updated last year, with a little more power, and an engine that revs even harder – all the way around the dial to 7,500rpm. It made a superb car even better.

Mazda ponders MX-5's future

  Mazda ponders MX-5's future Japanese company could give hybrid or fully-electric powertrain to existing sports carGiven its relatively low volume, the MX-5 might be one of the few cars that could avoid being electrified for its fifth generation but, either way, maintaining its light weight is crucial.

The year 2019 marks the 30 th anniversary of the brilliant Mazda MX - 5 Miata sports car, and Mazda is celebrating with the reveal of a zesty special edition at the Chicago auto show. In fact, the original Miata made its global debut at the 1989 Chicago show

That engine is one of the greatest four-cylinder motors you can buy. Rotary-smooth, it starts up with a fruity growl and is likeable in everyday use, but really comes alive when the rev counter hits vertical. The noise hardens, power appreciably intensifies and you’re bwapping on the rev limiter before you know it. Genuinely thrilling.

Zero to 62mph takes 6.8 seconds – but this isn’t a car about speed, it’s about sensations. Lighter than most cars on the road (at 1,124kg, it weighs almost 10 percent less than a five-door Ford Fiesta), this is reflected in the delicacy of the steering, the light clutch, the delectable short-throw gearbox – again, probably the best you can buy.

  Mazda MX-5 30th Anniversary 2019 UK review Mazda MX-5 30th Anniversary 2019 UK review What is it?Here we have another special-edition Mazda MX-5: a car that has been sold in more special editions, over the years, than almost any other. The global tally is already beyond fifty (not all of which were limited-number runs, incidentally), with several – like the one you’re here to read about – built to commemorate a significant anniversary.

The driver gets a great view over it, angular wings rising either side to pinpoint the centre-line of the tyres. Of course the roof should be open: Mazda says there’s a small preference for the convertible MX-5, which has a fabric roof that drops down in seconds. The RF version costs more, its automatic hard-top roof takes longer, and it opens up less of the cabin.

Recaro seats are trimmed in Alcantara and Mazda chucks in Apple CarPlay and Android Auto for free, too. The fact that each car – 370 convertibles, 180 RFs – has an individual serial number is the icing on the cake.

Mazda CX-30 2020 UK review

  Mazda CX-30 2020 UK review Sweet handling and a plush interior help the stylish new Mazda CX-30 stand out as it touches down in the UKThere’s very little torque low down, and any episodes of meaningful acceleration are always preceded by a need to frantically row your way down through the ratios on the standard-fit manual 'box. The fact that it’s a tactile, slick operator does help you forgive the engine’s lack of punch, but the need to constantly downshift does grate when you want to perform a swift overtaking manoeuvre on the motorway.

Being based on the top-spec MX-5 brings Bilstein suspension dampers, a strut brace and a limited-slip differential, so it has an exotic spec sheet. Mazda has set all this up flawlessly to produce a friendly, interactive, genial car that is always on your side and ready to raise a smile.

Compared to a hot hatch, it almost feels over-soft, as the body rolls in corners and the suspension is supple over bumps. This, however, is because it’s so light, meaning Mazda hasn’t had to battle with managing excess weight. Best driven with fingertips, it’s nimble and flows beautifully, feeling exactly like the 1960s throwback Mazda intended since day one.

Press us, and our preference is for the convertible, pictured here. The RF looks cool, like a 1960s coachbuilt special. But it weighs a tiny bit more and somehow doesn’t feel as pure. Those extra 42 extra kilos are presumably located higher up in the car, comprising glass, metal and electric roof-fold kit.

BBR GTi Mazda MX-5 Super 220 2020 UK review

  BBR GTi Mazda MX-5 Super 220 2020 UK review Brackley tuner takes Mazda's latest 2.0-litre engine to another level – but that's only half the storyFire the thing up and it doesn't feel so standard anymore. As well as the Super 220 engine upgrades, this car is running BBR’s GT-spec exhaust silencer, whose note is enjoyably punchy at idle – tight and brassy but also juicy – and only gets better from there. BBR’s Supersport silencer allegedly ups the ante considerably, and to the extent that it’s not officially recommended with the upgraded exhaust manifold: good fun but far too lairy for most.

It also throws more wind into your hair and sun on your neck. Our advice: save the £1,800 (the MX-5 30th Anniversary convertible is £28,095; the RF is £28,895). 

Mazda has sold 1.1 million MX-5s since its launch in 1989 – 134,000 of them in the UK alone. Brits love the Japanese interpretation of the classic British sports car and this 30th Anniversary model, the finest one to date, is the perfect way to celebrate. But although we’ve been granted the single largest allocation of any global market, the warning at the start of this review remains: there are already only 275 of them left in the dealer network. And counting down…
