Thanks to a friendly Mazda dealer in Canada and some of the insiders at Miata.net, we now understand a fair 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 hold onto their cash and send others hurrying to the car dealership for a 2018 model. We got in touch with a representative for Mazda U.S.A who chose not to verify the credibility of the leaked document, however that’s foregone conclusion in a situation like this.
2019 Mazda MX-5 Miata Engine
Let’s start with the engine. The power figures are outstanding– 181hp at an as-yet-unspecified engine speed and 151 lb-feet of torque. These are improvements 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 existing car has come in for some criticism due to the fact that its 6800-rpm difficult redline was 400rpm below the redline of the previous-generation NC Miata. Sure enough, the documentation supplied to dealers describes 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 intake and exhaust ports and a high-lift camshaft. Both consumption and exhaust systems will have greater flow and there is a new throttle body. These are the type 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 frequently much heavier and they are constantly more complex. Mazda claims it’s to manage some of the noise, vibration, and harshness concerns brought on by the more powerful engine. Another annoyance: Drivers who want to listen to compact discs will not be pleased to hear that the CD player is entered the brand-new car.
2019 Mazda MX-5 Miata Features
The 2 big changes outside the powertrain: Smart City Braking System, which is implied to minimize pedestrian fatalities at the expense of whatever consume you take place to have in your hand or cupholder at the time, and a long-awaited telescoping steering wheel. The ND’s cockpit is noticeably 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 likewise a rearview cam 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 readily available for Miatas in Canada do not precisely match the US-market ones. Their trim levels of GX (base), GS (mid-tier) and GT are comparable, however 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 mix as standard. What this means for the 50-state market is any person’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. Traditionally, US-market cars have actually had less color options than Canadian cars, so there is absolutely 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. Notable competitors include the FIAT 124 Spider, Toyota 86 and Subaru BRZ.
