Mazda is launching one final special edition of the outgoing MX-5 roadster before the new model arrives later in the year.

The Mazda MX-5 Icon is available at £16,600 on-the-road for the 1.6i model and £17,100 on-the-road for the 1.8i model.

The Icon features black leather heated seats and black leather steering wheel, gear knob and handbrake lever all with orange stitching, windblocker and two additional tweeter speakers (normally an option on the 1.6i model), all fitted as standard.

The Mazda MX-5 Icon, which is fitted with a cloth soft top and 15″ inch alloy wheels as standard, is available with a 1.6-litre 110ps or 1.8-litre 146ps engine. These return 36.2mpg and 32.5mpg respectively on the official Combined cycle.

The Icon adds high levels of specification to the standard Mazda MX-5, featuring remote central locking and deadlocking and a single CD player with two additional tweeters and a wind blocker with two built-in additional speakers, which is normally an option on the 1.6i model.

Front fog lamps and the choice of four colours – unique Chilli Orange mica and Black mica, as well as popular Titanium Grey and Sunlight Silver metallic – are available, while stainless steel scuff plates complete the exterior look.

This special edition model also offers the opportunity for customers to personalise their Mazda MX-5 Icon with a choice of a number of interior and exterior accessories up to the value of £500, all included in the price.

The insurance group for the Mazda MX-5 Icon remains unchanged from standard versions, with the 1.6i at 11E and the 1.8i at 12A.
