What comes with the 2019 Mazda MX-5 Miata 30th Anniversary Edition?

When Mazda officially unveiled the 30th Anniversary Edition of the Mazda MX-5 Miata at the Chicago Auto Show, the public response was overwhelmingly positive. The automaker and 500 of the 3,000 models set aside for global preorder. In just one hour, 100 of those models were spoken and just a few hours after that, the rest of the designated pre-sale convertibles had been reserved. However, Gwatney Mazda of Germantown customers will still have a chance to own one later this year. So, what comes with the 2019 Mazda MX-5 Miata 30th Anniversary Edition? Let’s take a look. To be sure, the anniversary model has some crossover with the standard production version. But, there will also be a few exclusive features to set it apart.

Performance specs

When the 2019 Mazda MX-5 Miata debuted, it was already equipped with an upgraded power plant. The 30th Anniversary Edition comes with the same engine and transmission options. Under the hood is a naturally aspirated iteration of the SKTACTIV®-G 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine. It can be attached to a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission. Like the standard version, the limited edition will make 181 horsepower and 151 pound-feet of torque.

How is it different?

The most telling difference between the 30th Anniversary Edition and the rest of the 2019 Mazda MX-5 Miata lineup is the exterior paint scheme. Mazda designers have chosen an exclusive color, Racing Orange, to be applied to the outside of the special edition convertible. Gwatney Mazda of Germantown buyers choosing the hard-top version will have a color-matched top, while the soft-top models will be covered in black material.

Not only is this color going to catch the eye, but it also pays homage to the original model year of the Mazda MX-5 Miata.

Additionally, the 30th Anniversary Edition is equipped with the latest connectivity technology the automaker has to offer. The standard MAZDA CONNECT™ infotainment system will be compatible with both the Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay™ suites of applications.
