Mazda MX-5 Updates Include More Horsepower and Improved Design

Miata MX-5

The Mazda MX-5 Miata comes with some exciting updates, including a tuned powertrain and a new soft-top option. For those looking for the ideal roadster, the Miata might be the right answer. The latest powertrain adds an impressive 26 horsepower and 3 lb-ft of torque, while the refined exterior is bound to set you apart on the road.

According to Mazda, the Mazda MX-5 updates will include a “SKYACTIV®-G 2.0-liter engine that’s been specially tuned for the latest model year. There will also be an available brown soft top on the Grand Touring models, while a new aluminum steering column will reduce weight and improve speed. There’s also a standard rearview camera now — which is great for parallel parking — as well as available safety systems like Traffic Sign Recognition.

“The feeling you get on the open road in a lightweight roadster is unmatched. To build upon that feeling, Mazda’s engineers have enriched the 2019 MX-5 Miata’s “SKYACTIV®-G 2.0-liter engine to boast 17 percent more power and greater fuel-efficiency than last year’s model,” reads the Mazda press release.

For those looking for a little added power, you can also find a SKYACTIV®-MT system with Brembo brakes, alloy wheels, a rear bumper skirt, and more.
