And they are far more reasonable than I thought. In fact, when one compares the differences between the 2018 car and the 2019, the increase for the entry level car makes it a downright bargain.
The new 2019 base MX-5 is the GS and it will retail for $32,900, or exactly $1,000 more than the 2018 GX. The level of equipment barely compares to the GX as the ’19 GS also gains a telescoping steering wheel, backup camera, a battery of active and passive safety features and the improve SkyActiv 2.0-litre engine.
The mid-level GS-P will start at $36,900 while the top-line GT will sport a $39,900 sticker price. The all-important Sport Package remains at $4,400 and is always the way to go. The RF’s pricing is essentially unchanged.
I got to drive the new 2019 Mazda MX-5 a few weeks ago and it is nothing short of extraordinary. Somehow, Mazda never misses a beat with this car. Everybody loves it.
