MAZDA is re-aligning its MX-5 sports car line-up with a new naming structure and revised trim levels.

The 10-model line-up now sees convertible models taking the Roadster name used elsewhere around the globe, while the range now features the newly named Prime-Line, Exclusive-Line and Homura trim levels.

With an unchanged engine line-up, both the Roadster and Retractable Fastback RF models come with a choice of 1.5-litre 132ps and 184ps 2.0-litre Skyactiv-G petrol engines.

For the 2023 model year the 1.5-litre Roadster is available in Prime-Line and Exclusive-Line grade, replacing the previous SE-L and Sport models.

The 184ps 2.0-litre Skyactiv-G Roadster is matched to Exclusive-Line and the range-topping Homura grades - replacing the Sport Tech and GT Sport Tech model names.

As with the Roadster, the Prime-Line RF is powered by the 1.5-litre engine, while Exclusive-Line models can be specified with either the 1.5 or 2.0-litre engine and the range-topping Homura has a 184ps 2.0-litre engine.

The 2.0-litre RFs in both trim levels come with the option to choose an automatic gearbox.

Mazda UK managing director Jeremy Thomson said: "When it comes to driver engagement, the current generation MX-5 has already established itself as a benchmark sports car, and with the 2023 Mazda MX-5 we continue to offer one of the most exciting and satisfying to drive cars money can buy."

"Our engineers have created a sports car that incorporates our ground-breaking Skyactiv technology, modern safety and superb efficiency with the driver focused enjoyment for which the MX-5 is loved. The MX-5 is Mazda's brand icon and it embodies all that is great about our products.

"It's fun to drive character has strengthened the bond between Mazda and its customers for more than 30 years and the 2023 model continues this unswerving dedication to delivering an affordable, engaging, world-class sports car."
