The fourth-generation Mazda MX-5 is recognized as the best-selling 2-seater sports car in history by the Guinness World Records. It returned to the Philippine Market, acquiring a sleeker yet more aggressive compact body that reflects the brand's KODO - Soul of Motion design philosophy. The roadster's development was stimulated by the motto "innovate to preserve," and now adapts the SKYACTIV technology that enables pure driving that a lightweight sports car provides.

Mazda Philippines offers the sports car with two variants, with loads of options made available to cater to various Filipino buyers. In other markets such as North America, the model is more commonly known as the Miata. And to celebrate its 30 years of production, the brand introduced its convertible version with a metal folding room and offers a single color only - racing orange.


In August 2015, Mazda Philippines launched the Mazda MX-5 launched soft-top variant. Two years later, the Japanese car brand introduced its RF variant at the Manila International Auto Show (MIAS). It is regarded as one of the best value-for-money sports cars one can get in the Philippines.

The base price of the model starts at Php 1,980,000 for the entry-level 2.0L SKYACTIV MT variant and goes up to Php 2.250,000 for the 2.0L SKYACTIV AT with a red top and red Nappa leather interior. To celebrate Mazda's 100th-year run in the automotive industry, the brand has also launched a limited edition version of the sports car. It comes with distinctive new features to highlight the edition such as a snowflake white pearl finish, a red top, a special 100th-anniversary badge, and more.

The Mazda MX-5's exterior is equipped with the brand's KODO design philosophy, where it enables the car to look like it's in constant motion, while the outside profile of the vehicle features sultry curves as well. Slim headlamps are evident on the front end, while several regions on the front, side, and rear have sharp and smooth corners.
