The fourth-generation Mazda MX-5 Miata due in 2015 will sport the brand's new Kodo design language, but styling changes will be relatively conservative, company sources say.
A key goal of the MX-5's development is a weight reduction of at least 220 pounds. It will be shorter, but with the same wheelbase. The new MX-5 is being developed in cooperation with Fiat. Alfa Romeo is bringing back its Spider on the same platform, with its own design and powertrain.
