The Mazda MX-5 Receives Updates for 2022

The 2022 Mazda MX-5 receives some updates

Launched in 2016 in this form, the Mazda MX-5 is certainly no longer the newest sports car on the market. Perhaps that’s why for 2022, the manufacturer is making changes to its pocket roadster, especially with the upcoming arrival of the Toyota GR86/Subaru BRZ tandem, or even the Volkswagen Golf GTI, not to mention its R variant.

In short, the Japanese roadster has to watch its back. At first glance, the only convertible in Mazda’s lineup doesn’t change much beyond the availability of a new exterior color called Quartz Platinum Metallic and a new Terra Cotta color for the Nappa leather seats. Also note the availability of a dark blue roof for the soft-top versions.

However, it’s the integration of new technology that’s getting attention for the 2022 model year. Kinetic Posture Control (KPC) is the latest innovation in the connection between the driver and the car. This new feature is aimed at improving precision and confidence in high-gravity cornering.

Kinetic Posture Control manages various vehicle systems to help the MX-5 behave as a seamless extension of the driver’s body without adding a single gram of weight to the lightweight roadster.

To ensure comfort and stability in everyday and sporty driving, the MX-5’s rear suspension is already designed to keep the vehicle anchored to the ground when the brakes are applied. The new system takes advantage of this and applies very light braking to the inside rear wheel during steep turns. This has the effect of reducing body roll and making steering response more linear in tight or difficult turns. Slightly more braking is used when accelerating through a corner, which enhances the limited slip effect.

According to Mazda, this electronic magic trick improves confidence and driving pleasure.

The Canadian wing also released the price list for multiple variants of the roadster, from the $33,300 GS to the $47,000 RF GT livery with the optional Sport Package.
