2019 Mazda MX-5 Miata Specs and New Features!
The team at Mazda has been busy with the new Mazda MX-5 Miata this year, optimizing the already impressive engine to offer more power and performance for drivers near Prescott, AZ! The SKYACTIV®-G 2.0-liter now offers a 181-horsepower output at 7,000 rpm – that’s a 17-percent increase over the previous model year’s 6,8000 rpm output.
The improvements of the SKYACTIV®-G 2.0-liter engine are thanks to a new exhaust system, an improved combustion capability, the reduction of internal mass and friction and the upgrade to a dual-mass flywheel (replacing the previous model year’s single-mass flywheel). The new 2019 Mazda MX-5 is seven pounds heavier thanks to the addition of a new aluminum steering shaft replacing the previous model year’s steel steering staff.
2019 Mazda MX-5 Miata models featuring an automatic transmission also feature an improved final drive ratio. The new ratio is 3.454 (increased from 3.583) and offers drivers an improved response time!
In addition to the increased performance, new MX-5 Miata models now offer a newly-available brown canvas soft top, as well as a new telescoping steering wheel, new black metallic alloy wheels and more!
Additionally, new MX-5 Miata models come standard fit with a rearview camera and offer a number of i-ACTIVESENSE™ safety features, including Smart City Brake Support and Traffic Sign Recognition technology.
