The Mazda Miata 'Club' Edition is Good News for Two Reasons

If you were in the market for a third generation Mazda Miata... this summer might be the perfect time to gobble one up. Why? Because the fourth-gen MX-5 is bearing down on us and this newly revealed MX-5 Club edition sits at the top of that trim hierarchy. It's quite a stunner, and if we're right, it ought to spur more than a few lightly used MX-5 trade-ins soon.  Used car-buying advice aside, the 2016 MX-5 Club makes its debut at the New York Auto Show. It's set to be a North America-only special edition (for now) and brings with it a bevy of standard performance add-ons.

It's far from a stripped-out 'club racer', in fact you still get Mazda's full infotainment system and nine-speaker stereo, but you can option it up further. Mazda will also offer lightweight BBS 17-inch alloy wheels, chompy Brembo front brakes, more aerodynamic side sills, and a new rear bumper skirt, but the diff-lock, brakes, and shocks will only be available on manual transmission-equipped models. A launch date hasn't been announced officially, but expect it to join the standard MX-5 when it arrives in dealerships this summer.

Mazda announced that the first 1,000 US-bound MX-5s are part of a special Launch Edition. All of those cars arrive exclusively dressed in Soul Red paint with tan leather interior, and will be available only to customers who pre-register and drop a $500 deposit on the firm's new site, Pricing hasn't been announced, though we can tell you the base MX-5 will retail starting at $24,915.
