    IRVINE, Calif., Aug. 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Adding a new dimension to the
Mazda MX-5 without diminishing its driving joy is no mean feat. The MX-5
Miata reinvented the lightweight, fun-to-drive, two-seat category in 1989,
and has since become the world's best-selling two-seat roadster. For 2007,
Mazda's iconic MX-5 will again set a new standard for the segment with the
introduction of a Power Retractable Hard Top (PRHT). And with pricing
beginning at only $24,350 (MSRP, not including tax, license and destination
and handling fees), it provides drivers with year-round comfort and
security as well as the joy of an open-top roadster at a truly affordable
price.

    Powered by a 170-hp, 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine, the MX-5 PRHT
provides exactly the same trunk capacity as its soft-top cousin, regardless
of whether the roof is stowed or over-head -- a feat no other retractable
hard top-equipped car sold in North America can boast. This breakthrough
system requires only 12 seconds to open or close.
    For $24,350, buyers will receive a Sport-trim MX-5 PRHT which includes
the power retractable hard top, power windows, mirrors and door locks,
anti-lock brakes, seat-mounted side SRS airbags and an AM/FM/CD player.
Available options (some only available in packages) include leather
seating, dynamic stability and traction control, Bilstein gas shock
absorbers and run-flat tires. MX-5 PRHT will be available at Mazda dealers
throughout the nation starting in late September.
    Even fitted with its coupe-like hard top, the MX-5 PRHT continues to be
a light-weight roadster offering a truly fun-to-drive experience, adding
only approximately 77 pounds net weight. Some minor adjustments were in
order to compensate for the added weight, though, including firmer shock
absorbers, higher spring rates and a larger diameter front anti-roll bar.
    When the top is down, MX-5 PRHT models can be identified by a fine
chrome ring around the grille opening, bright bezels inside the headlamps,
a chrome band in each door handle and a white lens on the CHMSL.
    Mazda MX-5 PRHT comes with seven exterior colors having two new colors
-- Stormy Blue Mica and Highland Green Mica replacing two existing colors.
Three interior packages -- black fabric, black leather, and saddle-tan
leather -- carry over from the MX-5 soft top.
    Headquartered in Irvine, Calif., Mazda North American Operations
oversees the sales, marketing, parts and customer service support of Mazda
vehicles in the United States, Canada and Mexico through nearly 900
dealers. Operations in Canada are managed by Mazda Canada, Inc, located in
