    The colour palate for this new ND is pretty weak, Soul Red (pictured) IS the best colour, the rest are very ‘dull looking’ mica/metallic.
    Why the heck can’t Mazda have one or even two special launch ones, like a bright yellow, orange or a bright blue…come on.
    Mazda have just used the same paint jobs as the new CX-3 and Mazda 6.
    The MX-5 is meant to be different!
