Mazda MX-5 Miata 30th Anniversary Edition Headed to Chicago

Teaser gives us a sneak peek of new vehicle

The Chicago auto show sometimes gets lost in the shuffle between the more prominent Detroit and Geneva shows, but it always offers up some gems. And it looks like Mazda is cooking up something good this year to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Miata.

Mazda will introduce a special-edition Miata at the show in February. If you look closely at the teaser image Mazda has released, you'll see the image of a red car with a hard top. So it stands to reason the special edition will be based on the RF. If it follows the footsteps of the 25th anniversary edition Miata, it will feature unique exterior and interior trim and special badging.

Incidentally, the original MX-5 debuted at the Chicago auto show in February 1989. When we tested the original Miata, it reached 60 mph in 8.9 seconds with its 116-hp inline four-cylinder. Of course, the car has become much quicker over the years. The most recent Miata we tested was a 181-hp 2019 Mazda MX-5 Club hitting 60 mph in 5.7 seconds.

For now, we don't have any concrete details on the Miata 30th anniversary model. But we'll find out more when the Chicago auto show opens to the media February 7-8 before rolling out to the general public from February 9-18.
