Mazda and Fiat Group announced today that the two have signed a non-binding Memorandum of Understanding for the development and manufacturing of a new roadster for the Mazda and Alfa Romeo brands.

The roadsters will be based on Mazda’s next-generation MX-5 rear-wheel-drive architecture. However, each brand will develop two differentiated and distinct styling for each of their roadsters. Powertrains offered in both of the roadsters will also be unique to each brand.

“Establishing technology and product development alliances is one of Mazda’s corporate objectives and this announcement with Fiat is an important first step in that direction. It is especially exciting to be collaborating with such a prestigious marque as Alfa Romeo on a new roadster based on the next-generation MX-5, which is such an iconic vehicle for Mazda and recognised as the best-selling roadster of all time.” said Takashi Yamanouchi, Mazda’s Representative Director and Chairman of the Board, President and CEO.

The agreement also states that both vehicles will be built at Mazda’s Hiroshima, Japan, plant starting in 2015.
