The current ND MX-5 was introduced in 2015.
The MX-5 was last updated for the 2019 model year.
The ND will likely be the last non-electrified Miata.
Name a car that is more universally appreciated, easier to live with, affordable, and reliable than the Mazda MX-5? Go ahead, we’ll wait. We figured… The Miata has been around for more than 30 years and is currently in its 4th generation known as the ND which was introduced in 2015.
For the 2019 model year, the MX-5 was gifted more power from the naturally-aspirated 2.0-litre engine, along with a few more tweaks. The ND will once again be updated however we do not know what will be involved.
What we do know is that the next generation, the likely called NE, will be electrified but probably not fully electric. An all-EV version will come later as Mazda has announced its intentions of going all-electric around 2030.
Of the changes that could be made to the 2022 MX-5, Carscoops notes that new SkyActiv-X engines could find their way under the car’s bonnet. Visual upgrades are a real possibility as well.
We’ll find out more when Mazda introduces the updated 2022 MX-5 in a few short weeks, perhaps as a Holiday gift for driving enthusiasts.
