We used to get lots of Kuro editions from Nissan, and now another Japanese car maker is using that name for its new special edition car. It’s the Mazda MX-5 Kuro edition, on sale no in the UK, priced from £18,495. Kuro means black in Japanese, and refers to the dark accents adorning the MX-5’s exterior. There are two Kuro models available, one soft-top and one with a folding hard top.
The soft-top is powered by the 1.8 liter engine, while the hardtop gets the 2.0 liter, because it’s a bit heavier and all. But in terms of styling, both cars get a diffuser-style rear sports bumper, larger diameter sports exhaust, unique race car inspired exterior graphics, Black detailing around the front grille and front fog lights, plus unique ‘Kuro Edition’ badging, as well as 17-inch alloy wheels.
The Kuro MX-5 comes in three exterior colors; Velocity Red Mica, Crystal White Pearlescent and Brilliant Black.
As for the interior, MX-5 Kuro has unique Stone and Black heated leather seats, Stone leather door inserts, with contrasting red stitching, a silver interior deco panel with red accents, alloy pedals, premium floor mats with race inspired logo and climate control air-conditioning.
Mazda will sell only 200 examples of the Kuro Soft-top (£18,495) and 400 of the Kuro Roadster Coupe (£21,995) in the united Kingdom.
