Thanks to a friendly Mazda dealership in Canada and some of the experts at Miata.net, we now understand 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 info that will make some purchasers keep their cash and send out others rushing to the dealer for a 2018 model. We contacted a representative for Mazda USA who refused to validate the validity of the dripped file, however that’s par for the course in a scenario like this.
2019 Mazda MX-5 Miata Engine
Let’s start with the engine. The power figures are excellent– 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 method to increase horsepower that much without increasing torque? You have to spin the engine harder. The existing car has come in for some criticism because its 6800-rpm hard redline was 400rpm listed below the redline of the previous-generation NC Miata. Sure enough, the documentation offered to dealers refers to the “increased rev capacity” of the modified engine.
” Ultra-light” pistons, lighter linking rods, and a brand-new crankshaft are just 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 greater 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, however the brand-new ND2 Miata will have them from the factory.
One prospective fly in the lotion: For 2019, the Miata will have a dual-mass flywheel. These are often much heavier and they are always more complicated. Mazda claims it’s to handle a few of the noise, vibration, and harshness issues caused by the more effective 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 2 huge changes outside the powertrain: Smart City Braking System, which is suggested to decrease 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 steering wheel. The ND’s cockpit is visibly tighter than that of its predecessor so this is a big deal for those of us who are on the middle-to-outer varieties of human proportion. 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 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, 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 standard. What this implies 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 actually had less color alternatives than Canadian cars, so there is absolutely 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 presently approximate a release date sometime in July. Noteworthy competitors consist of the FIAT 124 Spider, Toyota 86 and Subaru BRZ.
