Keeping true to the original lightweight, pure-bred sports car formula that has seen close to 700,000 MX-5s sold worldwide, the MX-5 SE features significant mechanical improvements, including a limited slip differential and a Turbocharged engine tuned for torque to further enhance the MX-5's class-leading dynamics.

Other driveline changes introduced with the MX-5 SE include a more efficient radiator, an upgraded clutch, propeller shaft and differential, and harder rubber is used for the engine and differential mounts. The MX-5's acclaimed four-wheel double wishbone suspension has been retuned for the SE with modified Bilstein shock absorbers and coil springs now 20 per cent stiffer, ensuring great handling and a controlled ride. The MX-5 SE rides 10mm lower than the standard car and has new roll anti-roll bars fitted, with the front bar increasing by 1mm and the rear by 2mm.
