Bermaz has begun teasing the Mazda MX-5 as the vehicle gets ever closer to its introduction here – a video showcasing the open-top appeal of the car has gone up on Mazda Malaysia’s YouTube channel, but the ND isn’t the only MX-5 showcased in the clip.

Previous-gen roadsters are featured, bombing along down the open road, with an unfettered view of the world. Lots of manuals on show, and the smiles on the drivers’ faces says it all. Nothing like going topless, really.

The video is essentially a variation of the Look Up video seen in post highlighting the Australian launch of the car last week – the MX-5 arrives Down Under priced from AUD$31,990 (RM92,411) for a 1.5 litre model.

We won’t be getting the 1.5, nor will be getting the manual transmission option that’s seen on the ND in the video – the Malaysian car will be a 2.0 litre with an auto transmission, and price-wise, Bermaz CEO Datuk Seri Ben Yeoh revealed last month that the lightweight Jinba Ittai roadster will go for between RM190k-210k, depending on equipment.
