We will get to know the future of the Mazda MX-5 on October 28, 2023, at the Tokyo Motor Show! In fact. Mazda Motor Corporation has finally unveiled its lineup of models set to debut at the Japan Mobility Show 2023, the new name of Tokyo’s event.

The Japanese automaker’s exhibit has been crafted around the theme, “The Future Created by the ‘Love of Cars‘ ” which embodies Mazda’s commitment to crafting products that cater to customers’ passion for driving and automobiles.

Mazda MX-5: what’s going on

Enriching life-in-motion for those we serve” is Mazda’s corporate philosophy and the guiding principle behind the car models that will grace the Japan Mobility Show 2023. At the heart of Mazda’s booth will be the iconic MX-5, featuring a display of various generations of this beloved model, including the latest addition, the MX-5 SeDV, which can be controlled solely by the driver’s hands.

Furthermore, a new concept car designed to epitomize “The Future Created by the ‘Love of Cars'” theme will be unveiled as a world premiere during the Japan Mobility Show 2023.

Despite the partnership with Toyota, which led to the creation of the recently updated Mazda 2 Hybrid, it’s unlikely that the next Mazda MX-5 will be based on Toyota Supra/BMW Z4 duo. First, because Toyota’s supercar is larger and more powerful, but also because it’s now an aging model.

The brand new Mazda MX-5 it’s more likely to be based on one of Mazda’s new platforms: at the European launch of the CX-60 in October 2022, Mazda not only introduced the Large architecture on which the CX-60 is based, and which will serve as the foundation for larger models but also mentioned that they are working on the SkyActiv Multi-Solution Scalable Architecture.

It’s probably on this architecture that the next-generation MX-5 will be built, unless Mazda surprises us in Tokyo and reveals something else. We also know very little about the design: from the teaser photo, we can see an entirely new aesthetic, albeit in line with the past. The taillights always feature two circles, but now entirely LED and with a three-dimensional effect that seems to “sink” inward. The Mazda logo is also LED, and the third light has been moved lower.

Mazda MX-5 and the Mazda 2 Bio Concept

Mazda will also participate in the show programs organized by the Japan Automobile Manufacturers Association, showcasing the “Mazda Bio Concept” in the motorsport area. Additionally, Mazda will be part of “Out of KidZania,” an initiative aimed at children’s education through interactive play.
