2015 Mazda MX-5 rendered image

The upcoming generation of the Mazda MX-5 has been recently rendered and its body looks simply appealing.

Reports and official details on a new generation of the Mazda MX-5 have been around for quite some time now and it seems that the upcoming roadster is closer to its future owners than originally thought, because it will be officially presented towards the end of this year and it will become available for order in early 2015. The upcoming MX-5 pictured above has been virtually created by Theophilus Chin, who has used the Kodo design language to give it a very attractive styling and character.

The Mazda Kodo design language has been seen already in the new Mazda6, Mazda3 or even in the Hazumi Concept. The upcoming rear-wheel drive drop-top will be considerably lighter than the current one, losing some 100+ kg (220+ lbs) from its body, and it will also be smaller, with a lower center of gravity, a more rigid body and some other tweaks which will help it around a corner but also make it safer in a collision. More details on the upcoming Mazda MX-5 will probably be announced close to its official debut.
