Thanks to a friendly Mazda dealership 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, as well as a few other pieces of information that will make some buyers keep their loan and send others rushing to the car dealership for a 2018 model. We got in touch with an agent for Mazda USA who chose not to confirm the credibility of the dripped file, 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 need to spin the engine harder. The present car has actually come in for some criticism due to the fact that its 6800-rpm tough redline was 400rpm listed below the redline of the previous-generation NC Miata. Sure enough, the documentation provided to dealers refers to the “increased rev capacity” of the modified engine.
” Ultra-light” pistons, lighter linking 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 consumption and exhaust systems will have higher circulation and there is a brand-new throttle body. These are the kind of changes that racers have actually been making on Miatas for twenty-plus years now, but the 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 always more intricate. Mazda claims it’s to manage a few of the noise, vibration, and cruelty problems brought on by the more effective engine. Another inconvenience: Drivers who want to pay attention to cds will not be pleased to hear that the CD player is entered the new car.
2019 Mazda MX-5 Miata Features
The 2 huge changes outside the powertrain: Smart City Braking System, which is suggested to reduce pedestrian deaths at the expense of whatever drink you happen to have in your hand or cupholder at the time, and a long-awaited telescoping guiding 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 percentage. There’s also a rearview electronic 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 available for Miatas in Canada don’t precisely match the US-market ones. Their trim levels of GX (base), GS (mid-tier) and GT are comparable, but not similar, to our Sport, Club, and Grand Touring. For 2019, Canada will lose the GX and instead get a better-equipped GS as the base car. They will get a GS-P that has the BBS/Brembo combination as standard. Exactly what this indicates for the 50-state market is anybody’s guess. Will we lose Sport, leaving us with just Club and Grand Touring?
Canadian soft tops will also get an optional brown convertible top and 3 different colors of leather in the RF Grand Touring. Typically, US-market cars have had less color alternatives than Canadian cars, so there is nothing to suggest that the brown top will also 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 presently approximate a release date at some point in July. Significant rivals include the FIAT 124 Spider, Toyota 86 and Subaru BRZ.
