mazda's plucky roadster has a long history with the chicago auto show — and it's adding another historic chapter this year. the automaker will unveil the 30th-anniversary version of the mx-5 miata at the show, a full three decades after the original model was unveiled there.
the mx-5 was revised for 2019 with more power along with additional safety and convenience features. details are slim (and the teaser image hazy) about the new 30th anniversary edition, but it's unlikely that its changes will be significant.
according to mazda, it should just make a good thing even better. "now and into the future, mazda remains committed to the idea behind the original mazda mx-5 in 1989: a car that makes everyone happy," mazda said in a statement.
