Following the embarrassing leakage of the official sketches about a month ago, a Spanish website
broke the embargo today and released the first shots of the facelifted Mazda MX-5 / Miata roadster. From what we can tell by comparing photos of the ’09MY MX-5 / Miata to the current model, the only visible differences seem to concern the front-end.
The evolutionary styling changes include the larger, and more trapezoidal-shaped grille that nests in a restyled bumper featuring a front splitter and new fog light inserts. Mazda also redesigned the car's headlights which appear to have a more angular shape. We are not aware of any other changes but stay tuned on Auto Cars 2011, as according to our sources, Mazda will unveil the 2009 MX-5 / Miata shortly. –One more pic after the jump
