All of this is Mazda's determination to develop elegant and high performance vehicle, which are the uniqueness of Mazda.

The introduction of the New Mazda MX-5 with Zircon Sand exterior color, which is the new color launched in Thailand for the first time in this model, is the color that expresses the premium quality and has the same uniqueness as other Mazda signature colors presenting dynamic and natural beauty that created by the reflection of light on the vehicle. This striking, earthy tone is golden brown in some angles. When combined with the reflection of the blue sky, Zircon Sand can appear to have a hint of green like sunlight filtering through the trees. The subtle green glimmer is a nod to the calm of time spent in nature. This is the feeling that Mazda intends to convey to those who see it, which is in line with the intention of creating a car to become more than a vehicle, but being the power that creates happiness and vitality to all drivers.
