In fact, the original Miata made its global debut at the 1989 Chicago show, making the launch of this new version at this year's show even more poignant. Therefore with 1989 marking its 30th anniversary, Mazda was hardly going to let the MX-5's big 3-0 pass unnoticed.

Mazda originally debuted the MX-5 Miata at the 1989 Chicago Auto Show, so it's only fitting that the Japanese automaker has chosen to celebrate the 30th anniversary of that vehicle by making the world premiere of the MX-5 Miata 30th Anniversary in Chicago. There's also Alcantara trim on the seats, the door cards, and the instrument cluster. Also, each 30th Anniversary Edition Miata will get a badge, located on the driver's-side quarter-panel ahead of the rear wheel, that denotes the serial number of the vehicle.
Live photos of the special Miata in Chicago are now in the gallery. A Bose sound system is also along for the ride, and the Mazda Connect infotainment system has both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto standard.
