Mazda's popular MX-5 roadster has come in for one final update before its successor arrives, with the order books opening for Australia this week.

Due for a showroom debut later this year, the updated 2013 MX-5 gets a number of exterior and interior tweaks, along with a handful of small enhancements to the driving experience.

For 2013, the updated roadster picks up a new front bumper, featuring a new take on Mazda's five-point grille and new foglight housings - both inspired by the MX-5 Spyder concept.

Inside, there's a new gloss-grey treatment to the dash's decoration panel, along with the steering wheel bezel and instrument meter rings.

There are also new wheel options, new exterior colours and new interior trim colour options.

Mechanically, the 2013 MX-5 gets adjustments to the manual mode of its throttle management program for more responsive acceleration.

There's also an update to the brake booster designed to deliver better balance in front-rear load distribution.

Engine specifications remain unchanged, with the 2.0 litre four-cylinder engine producing 118kW and 188Nm of torque.

The MX-5 also picks up a new pop-up active bonnet for 2013, improving passenger safety in the event of an accident.



The 2013 MX-5 will hit Australia in the coming months.

Pricing details are still to be confirmed, but buyers will no doubt be watching closely to see if the newly-launched and sharply-priced Toyota 86 and Subaru BRZ will have an impact.
