Official Mazda MX-5 / Miata Facelift Drawings
Remember the 2010 Mazda3 designs (click here for details) that Mazda filed at OHIM, the European agency for trademarks and designs that we showed you a couple a days ago? Well, along with the next-generation Mazda3, the Japanese automaker has also registered at OHIM a set of phantom images of what appears to be a facelift version of the Miata / MX-5 roadster. Judging from the designs, the revamped roadster will get a new front end with a larger grille, new fog light housings and restyled head lamps.
Just so you can get a better idea of what the facelift model may look like, we photoshoped one of the phantom images onto the current version of Mazda’s two-seater roadster. While we haven’t heard anything official yet, it is possible that Mazda may unveil the 2009 MX-5 / Miata at the forthcoming Paris Motor Show in early October.
