Mazda's Ultra-Cool 100th Anniversary Edition MX-5 Miata Is Coming to the U.S.

Mazda North America confirmed today the 100th Anniversary Special Edition MX-5 Miata, announced earlier last year to celebrate the company’s 100th birthday, is coming to the U.S. market.

Based on the MX-5 Grand Touring, the 100th Anniversary MX-5 comes exclusively in Snowflake White Pearl Mica with a red soft top or, on RF models, a black painted roof. Inside, you’ll find red leather seats, red carpeting, and red floor mats. There’s also a handful of exclusive badges inside and out to commemorate the company’s centennial.

Every 100th Anniversary car is powered by the 2.0-liter naturally aspirated inline-four first introduced on the car in 2018. It sends 181 horsepower and 151 lb-ft of torque to the rear wheels via either a six-speed manual or a six-speed automatic with paddles. Opt for the manual, and you get a limited-slip differential, a sportier suspension with Bilstein dampers, and a front shock tower brace. Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, a Bose sound system with headrest speakers, heated seats, and 17-inch alloy wheels come standard.

Mazda says the 100th Anniversary Miata will start at $32,670 when ordered with the soft top and manual transmission. Add $2755 if you want an RF. Need an automatic transmission? Be prepared to hand over an extra $525 for a soft top car, or $325 for an RF. Anniversary models will be arriving at dealerships later this year, though Mazda didn’t specify how many examples have been allocated for the U.S.
