The updated 2024 Mazda MX-5 lineup has hit Australia, with prices up by $150 since the original launch announcement last October.

    A total of nine variants will be offered across Roadster and RF body styles, with prices starting from $41,520 before on-road costs for the MX-5 Roadster and $46,250 before on-roads for the MX-5 RF.

    Touted as “the most exhilarating MX-5 driving experience yet”, the 2024 Mazda MX-5 is headlined by a new DSC-TRACK stability control mode for circuit driving, a newly developed Asymmetric Limited Slip Differential, and a new 8.8-inch Mazda Connect infotainment system that will also debut Mazda Connected Services in Australia.

    Pricing for the facelifted MX-5 is around $2000-$2500 compared to the outgoing range, and already has been subjected to minor price increases since the original announcement (by about $150).
