Mazda Motor Corporation will use the 2006 British International Motor Show for
its global reveal of the new Mazda MX-5, now equipped with a power retractable
hard top roof - and the regional debut of the Mazda BT-50 one-ton truck.
The British International Motor Show will be held in London from Tuesday,
18th July, through Sunday, 30th July, 2006.
Featuring a new, unique power retractable hard top roof, this is an all-new
addition to the third-generation Mazda MX-5. This new Mazda MX-5 model provides
a unified sense of driving exhilaration, ready to spread the fun of lightweight
sports cars in diverse and distinct new ways.
Mazda will also reveal its new one-ton truck, the Mazda BT-50, equipped with
a powerful new 2.5- litre Direct Injection Turbo Diesel engine. The British
International Motor Show marks the European premiere of this diesel engine,
which made its world debut at the Bangkok Motor Show last March.
Along with these models, the Mazda Sassou and Mazda Kabura concept vehicles
will also be exhibited.
Mazda MX-5 with a power retractable hard top roof will be known by
different names around the world:
Europe and Australia: Mazda MX-5 Roadster
