Mazda is bestowing some updates to the MX-5 Miata roadster and RF models for 2020.

There are newly available colors and a few pieces of new equipment. Prices rise by $700–$890.

The 2020 Miata goes on sale in February.

We feel grateful every time the Mazda MX-5 Miata lives to see a new model year. This charming roadster isn't a hot seller, but it's one of our favorite cars, so we're happy to see it receive some updates for 2020. New exterior and interior colors are on offer and there's a bit more standard equipment, meaning that the price increases of between $700 and $890, depending on trim level, are relatively easy to stomach.

All 2020 Miatas also get a new font and a new key fob like the rest of the Mazda lineup. The MX-5 Miata Sport remains the base trim and it now starts at $27,500. That price includes new driver-assist features—blind-spot monitoring, lane-departure warning, and forward-collision warning—which are now standard across the board. The $31,210 Miata Club now includes Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. The Grand Touring now costs $32,590 and features the same chassis upgrades as the Club, including a limited-slip differential, Blistein dampers, a front shock tower brace, and stiffer suspension tuning. The RF version with a retractable Targa top cost $2755 extra and comes only in Club and Grand Touring trims.

Polymetal Gray is a newly available exterior color, as first seen on the Mazda 3 hatchback. And the Grand Touring model now offers a gray soft top black and brown tops remain available, too and a $300 red leather interior with certain exterior color options.

2020 Miatas with these updates will start arriving at Mazda dealerships in February.
