Thanks to a friendly Mazda dealer in Canada and some of the experts at Miata.net, we now know quite a bit more about how the new 2019 Mazda MX-5 Miata will make its power, along with a couple of other pieces of details that will make some buyers hold onto their cash and send others hurrying to the dealership for a 2018 model. We called a representative for Mazda U.S.A who refused to confirm the validity of the dripped document, however that’s foregone conclusion in a scenario like this.
2019 Mazda MX-5 Miata Engine
Let’s begin with the engine. The power figures are remarkable– 181hp at an as-yet-unspecified engine speed and 151 lb-feet of torque. These are enhancements of 26 hp and 3 lb-feet respectively. The only way to increase horse power that much without increasing torque? You have to spin the engine harder. The current car has come in for some criticism because its 6800-rpm tough redline was 400rpm below the redline of the previous-generation NC Miata. Sure enough, the documentation supplied to dealers refers to the “increased rev capability” of the modified engine.
” Ultra-light” pistons, lighter connecting rods, and a new crankshaft are simply part of it. The 2019 engine will have larger consumption and exhaust ports and a high-lift camshaft. Both intake and exhaust systems will have higher circulation and there is a brand-new throttle body. These are the kind of changes that racers have been making on Miatas for twenty-plus years now, but the brand-new ND2 Miata will have them from the factory.
One possible fly in the lotion: For 2019, the Miata will have a dual-mass flywheel. These are typically much heavier and they are constantly more complicated. Mazda declares it’s to manage a few of the sound, vibration, and cruelty concerns brought on by the more powerful engine. Another annoyance: Drivers who prefer to listen to compact discs will not be pleased to hear that the CD gamer is entered the new car.
2019 Mazda MX-5 Miata Features
The two big changes outside the powertrain: Smart City Braking System, which is indicated to minimize pedestrian fatalities at the cost of whatever consume you happen to have in your hand or cupholder at the time, and a long-awaited telescoping steering wheel. The ND’s cockpit is significantly tighter than that of its predecessor so this is a huge offer for those of us who are on the middle-to-outer varieties of human proportion. There’s likewise a rearview video camera now for when you’re backing your SCCA National Solo Miata as much as your tire trailer.
2019 Mazda MX-5 Miata Trim Levels
The trim levels offered for Miatas in Canada don’t exactly match the US-market ones. Their trim levels of GX (base), GS (mid-tier) and GT are similar, but not similar, to our Sport, Club, and Grand Touring. For 2019, Canada will lose the GX and rather get a better-equipped GS as the base car. They will get a GS-P that has the BBS/Brembo mix as requirement. Exactly what this suggests for the 50-state market is anyone’s guess. Will we lose Sport, leaving us with just Club and Grand Touring?
Canadian soft tops will likewise get an optional brown convertible top and 3 various colors of leather in the RF Grand Touring. Typically, US-market cars have had less color options than Canadian cars, so there is nothing to recommend that the brown top will likewise make it south of the border.
2019 Mazda MX-5 Miata Release Date
The 2019 Mazda MX-5 Miata is expected to start production in May 2018. We currently approximate a release date sometime in July. Notable competitors consist of the FIAT 124 Spider, Toyota 86 and Subaru BRZ.
