2019 Mazda MX-5 Miata Powertrain Details
Mazda engineers have been busy enriching the engine of the new 2019 Mazda MX-5 Miata, which now offers better power and performance for Bergen County drivers.
The new SKYACTIV®-G 2.0-liter now boasts 181 horsepower at 7,000 rpm – compare that to the previous year model’s 6,800 rpm; that’s a 17 percent increase from the previous model year! The new Miata even adds seven pounds of weight thanks to the changes and the addition of an aluminum steering shaft (replacing steel).
These increased performance numbers are the result of the reduction of internal mass and friction, the reduction of exhaust loss, improved combustion capability, a dual-mass flywheel (that replaces the single-mass flywheel) and a new exhaust system!
Also new for 2019, Mazda MX-5 Miata models equipped with an automatic transmission will see an increase in the final drive ratio from 3.454 to 3.583, improving response time.
