The MX-5 gains an optional power-retractable hard top (PRHT) convertible variant. The power operated top takes only 12 seconds to operate and stows with no loss to cargo capacity. Some sheet metal changes were made to accomodate the new top mechanism. Minor suspension changes were made to accomodate the extra 77 lbs of weight. Changes include firmer shocks, higher spring rates and a larger front anti-roll bar. PRHT models are distinguished by a chrome trim ring around the grille opening.
