Mazda Philippines Announces the 2022 Mazda MX-5  

Mazda Philippines introduces the 2022 Mazda MX 5 with a fresh round of color and trim changes, and a handling upgrade engineered to deliver an  even more enjoyable, comfortable and connected driving experience.  


Customizable under the Build Your MX-5 customer-initiated online experience on the Mazda  Philippines website, the 2022 Mazda MX-5 may be configured online with preferred specification  and emailed to the preferred dealership for fulfillment contact. 


“With over close to 1,000 examples sold by our distributorship since 2014, The Mazda MX-5  continues to be a popular and highly regarded sports car in the Philippines,” says Steven Tan,  president and CEO of Mazda Philippines. “Mazda’s lightweight, open-top formula as seen on the  MX-5 has consistently been realized for more than 30 years. But we believe there is still room to  involve the driver even more and enhance the emotional bond with his car. That is why we are  continuing to elevate this already unique driving experience with the introduction of new features  and owner-initiated options that will make future MX-5 owners even happier and fulfilled.”

Customers who visit and its Build Your MX-5 portal will now be presented with  76 possible combinations for their 2022 Mazda MX-5 order. Both the six-speed Skyactiv Drive automatic and manual transmissions are available in Soft-Top and Retractable Fastback  body styles. 


The fabric for the Soft-Top MX-5 can be ordered in either Black or Dark Cherry colors for a more  personalized finish. Those who prefer the RF (Retractable Fastback) bodystyle will have the choice  of either a body colored or black roof for automatic transmission-equipped selections, or a black  roof for the manual geared RF. 


Club Edition for All  

For the first time since its Philippine introduction in 2018, the Mazda MX-5 Club Edition will now  be available in the Soft-Top guise. Similar to the RF, the 2022 Soft-Top MX-5 Club Edition will  also feature the exclusive line’s signature Recaro sport bucket seats and lightweight 17-inch Dark  Finish BBS Forged Wheels. Both the manual transmission-equipped MX-5 Soft Top and RF will be  equipped with Bilstein Sports Dampers for a more engaging drive. 


Richer Finish  

Aside from the traditional Black Leather trim already available in the two-seat roadster, the 2022  Mazda MX-5 will now have a customer option for the new Terracotta Nappa leather seats. The vivid and rich brown hue of the new high quality, smooth to touch leather interiors create a warmer  and more finely endowed cabin that will further soothe the senses of both driver and passenger. 


With its intricate contrast stitching in the seats, door panels, steering wheel, hand brake and gear  levers, the 2022 Mazda MX-5 achieves an even higher level of timeless quality and craftsmanship  that its owners will appreciate for years to come. 


A Distinctive On-Road Presence  

For 2022, the Mazda MX-5 will be made available with a new body color. Platinum Quartz  Metallic, which replaces Arctic White. It features a silky white finish that has a quartz-like  translucency. The new color exudes a renewed sense of class and elegance in the MX-5 making it  stand out further while maintaining its refined and distinguished demeanor. 


Enhancing the Spirit of Jinba Ittai  

The Mazda MX-5 is meant to be driven again and again. With its light and responsive throttle, to  its intuitive steering, and of course it’s one of a kind top-down driving experience, the MX-5  continues to induce smiles and nurture pleasure and satisfaction each moment behind the wheel. 


To deliver an even greater sense of oneness between car and driver, the 2022 Mazda MX-5 will  now feature the Kinematic Posture Control, or KPC. This new technology is unique to the MX-5.  It provides a more integrated and stable turning posture even when cornering at high speed,  without adding a single gram to the car’s weight. 


Combined with the MX-5’s rear suspension that is already designed to generate an “anti-lift” force  that pulls the car’s body down when the brakes are applied, KPC optimizes the MX-5’s driving  capabilities by applying a slight braking force on the inner rear wheel under high G-force cornering.  This action suppresses body roll and stabilizes the posture of both driver and passenger. And with  less body roll, the MX-5 achieves better grip on the road surface. 


This new stabilization effect that KPC delivers is best noticed in tight corners and rough road  surfaces. In high speed cornering situations, KPC prevents the body of the car from lifting. With  the greater sense of connection to the ground provided by KPC, drivers can accelerate with even  greater confidence. 


KPC can determine turning conditions in real time. It detects the difference in speed between left  and right rear wheels, and operates linearly and seamlessly to produce an appropriate posture  stabilization effect. And the harder the drive becomes, the sharper the rear end of the MX-5  becomes as it smartly adjusts its turning posture. 


So from a leisurely drive to taking on winding mountain roads or race tracks, the 2022 Mazda MX 5 with KPC maximizes its potential to deliver more smiles in a wider range of driving scenarios  than ever before. 


The MX-5 will continue to be motivated by the potent 2.0-liter Skyactiv-G engine. With its 184 ps  of power and 205 Nm of torque, the highly fuel-efficient motor provides the familiar instantaneous  response and frugal gas consumption that has given the MX-5 it’s fun-to-drive reputation.


i-Activsense Safety Technologies such as Adaptive LED Headlamps, Smart City Brake Support and  Lane Departure Warning will continue to provide an extra measure of confidence and protection  on the road for the top-ranging MX-5 options. Dual Front and Side Airbags are standard  across the range. 


As with every available Mazda, all MX-5s ordered through the Build Your MX-5 online portal will  enjoy the benefits of Mazda Philippines’ 5-Year Free Service Plan. It covers the expenses of  periodic maintenance at either 6-month or 10,000-kilometer intervals, for up to 5 years or  100,000 kilometers, whichever comes first. 


Mazda customers will enjoy the peace of mind of not having to worry about PMS budgeting and  cost inflation concerns during the course of their ownership experience. And with its 3-Year  Bumper-to-Bumper Warranty, owning an MX-5 continues to be an enriching and fulfilling  experience.
