2013 Mazda MX-5 Miata still brings a smile to our faces

2013 Mazda MX-5 Miata live on the show floor at the 2012 Paris Motor Show

Believe it or not, despite the fact that Mazda first unveiled its refreshed 2013 MX-5 Miata in July of this year, the 2012 Paris Motor Show in late September is the first time we’ve run across the iconic sports car in the metal. And so we wasted no time in filling our DSLRs with a full spate of images.

As you can see, while we eagerly await the still-not-that-close next-generation Miata, the current MX-5′s well-known smiley visage has been toned down for 2013, and that’s most definitely a good thing in our books. Besides that, Mazda claims to have “[enhanced] throttle response and brake return.” Sounds like a nice addition to what is already a winning package.

We suggest combing through the upgrades in our high-res image gallery above. And if you like what you see, Mazda officials tell Autoblog that your local dealer should be getting their 2013 MX-5 stock right about… now.

Mazda has given the world a glimpse of the 2014 Mazda6 Wagon ahead of its debut at this year’s Paris Motor Show. The slinky five-door will bow in Europe and Japan with a Skyactiv-D 2.2-liter diesel engine in both standard and high-output configurations. Buyers who prefer a gasoline engine can opt for either 2.0-liter or 2.5-liter direct-injection four-cylinders. Mazda hasn’t said what we can expect to see in terms of transmission options, but the company has made it clear the 2014 Mazda6 Wagon will make use of a new brake energy regeneration system called i-Eloop.

The new Mazda6 Wagon will show off under the lights of the Paris Motor Show starting on September 27. Public days run from September 29 through October 14. In the interim, you can check out the images above and the brief press release below for more information.
