2015 Mazda MX-5 Miata
This legendary roadster made its debut in 1989 at the Chicago Auto Show. During these 25 years, this model became one of the most iconic two-seat roadsters with absolute record in number of unit sold. So far we have seen three generations of this car and company plans to introduce new, fourth-generation model soon. According to company’s spokesman, new model should be presented this autumn. Although it is still in testing phase, we already have some information about new-generation model which will come as Mazda MX-5 Miata 2015 year model.
2015 Mazda MX-5 Miata redesign
The 2015 Mazda MX-5 Miata will get new chassis. According to company, this will provide more than 100 kilograms (220 pounds) of weight savings. This new SKYACTIV chassis is engineered also for outstanding body rigidity and crashworthiness. Although company claims that 2015 MX-5 Miata will be designed in new KODO design language, it looks like it will not share design solutions with other models from Mazda’s line up. This basically means that just like with previous generations, this model will have its own, independent look, different from other models from this Japanese manufacturer. Although testing machine is still camouflage, it is clear that new model will look much more muscular, aggressive and attractive with much tighter and sharper edges.
2015 Mazda MX-5 Miata engine
It seems that new model will be offered in several engine variants. Although testing mule uses Alfa Spider’s 1.75 liter engine, it seems that new 1.6-litre petrol engine featuring SkyActiv technology will be the base engine and probably the first pick of the customers. Beside this 130 hp engine, Mazda also plans to offer new roadster in diesel variant, but potential engine is still unknown. New 2.0 liter four-cylinder SKYACTIV petrol engine which delivers around 165 horses is also a realistic option for 2015 Mazda MX-5 Miata.
