With a signature miss of weight and exquisite handling, undisguised gait and gobs of energy were never a Miata’s categorical offered points. Despite this, it looks like Mazda might be scheming to give a dear roadster a bit some-more grunt.
According to a new request from a National Highway Traffic Safety Administration detected by Road Track, a 2019 indication year Mazda MX-5 will apparently furnish 181 horsepower from a 2.0-liter four-cylinder. Compared to a 155 horses found in a MX-5’s stream iteration, this would symbol a 26 horsepower (or 17 percent) increase.
Road Track points out that while Mazda’s next-generation, application ignition SkyActiv-X engine is slated to make some-more than 180 horsepower in a 2.0-liter guise, a association has formerly settled that it would not be entrance to a MX-5.
So, possibly Mazda has backtracked on a preference to not give a Miata application ignition or a convertible’s existent SkyActiv-G indent has been significantly enhanced. One thing we consider we can safely order out, however, is any arrange of heretical turbo or supercharging. Then again, that’s accurately what people pronounced about a Porsche 911 Carrera, and we know how that incited out.
We’ve reached out to Mazda for criticism and will refurbish this story when we get a response. The current, yet-to-be-improved 2017 Mazda MX-5 Miata starts during $25,295.
