The Mazda MX-5, also known as the Miata in some regions, debuted in 1989 as a modern take on the classic British roadsters, embodying the essence of a lightweight, fun-to-drive convertible sports car. The MK1, or first generation, of the MX-5 was available in a convertible (cabriolet) body style and became an iconic and beloved car among enthusiasts.
Stylistically, the MK1 MX-5 Cabriolet had a classic and timeless design, reminiscent of vintage sports cars. It featured a lightweight body, sleek lines, a compact size, and a manually operated soft-top roof. Its design was a nod to traditional roadsters, aiming to provide an open-air driving experience with a focus on simplicity and driving enjoyment.
Under the hood, the MK1 MX-5 Cabriolet was powered by a modest yet lively 1.6-liter or later a 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine, delivering a balance of performance and fuel efficiency. The emphasis was on the driving experience rather than outright speed, offering nimble handling and a responsive, engaging drive.
The interior of the MK1 MX-5 Cabriolet was driver-focused, featuring a minimalist yet functional design. It offered seating for two occupants with a straightforward dashboard layout, supportive seats, and amenities designed to enhance the driving experience.
The manual soft-top roof of the MK1 MX-5 Cabriolet was easy to operate and could be raised or lowered manually, allowing for the joy of open-top motoring at the driver's convenience.
The MK1 MX-5 Cabriolet was celebrated for its balanced driving dynamics, precise handling, and affordability, making it a popular choice among driving enthusiasts who appreciated its back-to-basics approach and pure driving pleasure.
This model holds a special place in automotive history as a rejuvenation of the affordable, lightweight, and fun-to-drive roadster, and it continues to be cherished by enthusiasts worldwide for its driving purity and classic design.

At present, our inability to furnish pricing online stems from the dynamic nature of global economics, which has led to substantial fluctuations in the costs of parts and materials on a day-to-day basis. The intricate interplay of market forces, supply chain disruptions, and geopolitical factors has rendered pricing incredibly volatile, making it challenging to provide accurate and up-to-date figures in real-time.
As we remain committed to offering fair and transparent pricing to our customers, we find it prudent to ensure that any pricing information reflects the current market reality, hence our decision to refrain from online pricing until we can reliably provide figures that align with the ongoing fluctuations in the global economy.
