2019 Mazda MX-5 Miata New Edition

Power & Engine Options

For 2019 Model Year, the new Mazda MX-5 Miata will be powered with 2.0-liter inline-four Skyactiv engine. Previously, The Miata was powered by a 2.0-liter inline-four that was little more than a Mazda 3 engine turned longitudinally and stuffed into the MX-5’s small engine bay. Vehicle dynamics engineer Dave Coleman admits that the car was originally designed around the less powerful 1.5-liter four-cylinder that’s available in other markets and that by the time the decision was made to install a bigger engine in the Miata bound for the United States, it was too late to truly fine-tune the 2.0-liter for a sports-car application. Of course, the engine itself was hardly a dud—responsive and eager, it made the current car quicker than any Miata before it in our testing despite its meager 155 horsepower.

the engine’s changes for 2019 as “standard hot-rodding procedure.” The throttle body, intake valves, exhaust valves, and their corresponding ports are all larger, while the pistons and connecting rods are lighter, the crankshaft is stiffer, and the fuel-injection system runs at a higher pressure. As a result, the engine revs higher (redlining at 7500 rpm versus 6800 rpm) and puts out 26 more horsepower and 3 more lb-ft of torque for new totals of 181 horses and 151 lb-ft.

The engine revs more freely, the exhaust barks with more authority, and a jab at the throttle nudges you back into the seat a bit harder. Throttle response is prompt, and the power curve is more linear than before—peak power is reached 1000 revs higher, at 7000 rpm, and yet torque peaks 600 rpm lower, at 4000 rpm. More importantly, when the power starts to taper off in the 155-hp 2.0-liter at about 6000 rpm, the new 181-hp example keeps climbing for another 1000 revs. This allows for just a single shift to reach 60 mph. Spinning the tach all the way to the elevated redline is thrilling in a way that it wasn’t in the old 2.0-liter, elevating this engine to the same emotional plane as the rest of the car.

The already delightful six-speed manual transmission also has been revised for smoother operation, and it does seem to snick through the H-pattern with a bit more finesse than before. Its gearing has not changed, however. (The optional six-speed automatic receives a new final drive, but we did not drive a car so equipped.) Improved EPA fuel-economy numbers are another bonus; we averaged 30 mpg over 500 miles of mixed driving.

Exterior & Interior of The New MX-5 Miata

For 2019 Edition, Mazda MX-5 Miata gives two kinds of ragtop, one for standard MX- 5 Miata and other For MX-5 Miata RF. For Miata RF The retractable fastback roof that gracefully stows itself into its compartment behind the front seats at the touch of a button. With the roof raised, the Miata RF presents a cohesive look, as if it were designed as a coupe. Lower the top, though, and the rear pillars, which remain stationary, detract from the clean look of a convertible with the top and all the windows down. If you don’t want to splurge on the RF, don’t worry; the standard Miata’s ragtop is just as simple and easy to use 🙂

In the inside (Interior area) section, The 2019 MX-5 Miata now has a telescoping steering wheel, which was engineered to give taller drivers an easier reach to the wheel while adding a minimum of weight. Despite its more complex mechanism, the new function adds only about half a pound to the waifish Miata’s curb weight. A backup camera is also newly standard in accordance with federal regulations. These new features, along with some extra weight in the engine, add up to a claimed weight gain of just seven pounds overall.
