Mazda is giving the 2013 Mazda MX-5 Miata a refresh for the new year. The updates give the 2013 MX-5 Miata a more aggressive face and an upgraded interior. The 2013 MX-5 Miata is going on sale today in Japan, but should arrive in the U.S. by the end of the year.


Mazda says that the face of the 2013 MX-5 Miata now has a sense of depth with a larger front grille opening. The front fascia also gets a newly designed front fog lamp bezel and a new front chin spoiler. The interior gets a new tan leather option. There aren’t any large changes under the hood, but Mazda did revise the characteristics of the throttle and brake booster for improved control of the accelerator in the manual transmission models and the brakes in all models.

One new feature is an active hood (pedestrian protection system) which raises the rear end of the hood in the event of an accident to reduce impact to the head.
