    Mazda Finally Spills the Beans on 2019 MX-5 Miata

      Ooh, more horsepower

    For the past few months, we have been hearing about some key changes to the Mazda MX-5 Miata; more power from the four-cylinder engine, new safety features, and a telescoping steering wheel. Mazda has been using the "can't comment at this time" when asked about these changes. Today, the Japanese automaker finally confirmed the changes.

    Under the hood lies a reworked 2.0L Skyactiv-G producing 181 horsepower and 151 pound-feet of torque - up 26 and 3 respectively. A higher redline of 7,500 rpm complements the added power. To pull this off, Mazda made a number of changes to the engine which include,

    • Lighter pistons and connecting rods
    • Reconfigured intake ports
    • New fuel injectors
    • New exhaust system

    Mazda has also fitted a higher final drive ratio (3.583 vs. 3.454), which should make it slightly quicker off the line.

    There is also more safety tech for the 2019 MX-5 Miata. All models get a backup camera as standard and higher trim levels boast traffic sign recognition and  Smart City Brake Support.

    Other changes for the 2019 MX-5 include,

    • Optional brown canvas soft top
    • Redesigned 17-inch wheels
    • Telescoping steering wheel

    Mazda hasn't announced pricing on the 2019 MX-5 Miata, but does say it will arrive at dealers later this fall.
