Mazda has announced the 2016 Mazda MX-5 will be priced from $24,950 in the United States.

Set to go on sale this summer, the roadster will be available in three different trim levels including Sport, Club and Grand Touring.  The company is keeping detailed specifications under wraps but confirmed even the entry-level Sport variant will feature LED headlights, power door locks and a leather-wrapped gear knob.  The model will also have Bluetooth connectivity and a USB input - among other things.

As we have previously reported, the US-spec MX-5 will be powered exclusively by a 2.0-liter SKYACTIV engine that produces 155 bhp (115 kW) and 148 lb-ft (200 Nm) of torque.  The six-speed manual variant will weigh 2,332 lbs (1057 kg) which makes it approximately 150 lbs (68 kg) lighter than its predecessor.
