2021 Mazda MX-5 Returns With New Features And Colours

The Mazda MX-5 remains one of the greatest driving cars money can buy. For 2021, it gets minor updates


  • Pricing starts at $33,200 in Canada, $26,830 in the US.

  • Wireless Apple CarPlay is now available.

  • New exterior colour is Deep Crystal Blue.


We’ve never met a Miata we didn’t like. Sure, the internet and fans alike are not always kind to the 3rd generation NC but we’d give one a home in a heartbeat. The current 4th generation ND is, unfortunately for purists, the best-driving of them all and also the most advanced. For 2021, the Mazda MX-5 gets more features and a few extra colours hues, both inside and out.

Always at our service is the naturally-aspirated 2.0-litre 4-cylinder which was upgraded to 181 horsepower and 151 lb.-ft. of torque for 2019. A 6-speed manual or no-cost automatic transmissions are still available.

It can further be equipped with a Sport package ($4,400) that adds Brembo front brakes, BBS 17-inch Dark Gunmetal forged wheels, heated Recaro Sports Seats, and red-painted rear brake callipers.
