Officially official: More power for the Mazda MX-5!

While we could boast and say we knew it, the important details are that the 2019 Mazda MX-5 has more horsepower than the NC and NB Mazdaspeed versions. The 2.0-litre now produces 181 horsepower at 7,000 rpm and 151 lb.-ft. of torque at 4,000 rpm.

These results were achieved through a number of improvements made the MX-5’s SKYACTIV-G 4-cylinder engine. Its internals are now lighter and generate less friction, improved combustion, and exhaust losses have been reduced. On top of that, the car gets a dual-mass flywheel: Replacing the single-mass flywheel with a low-inertia, dual-mass responsiveness, a new exhaust system with richer sound quality a new final drive ratio.

The 2019 Mazda MX-5 will be quicker and drive just as good as it always has. It sounds as though this might be the Miata we’ve been waiting for since the death of the aforementioned Mazdaspeed Miata in 2005.

We. Can’t. Wait. To. Drive. It!!!
