Got your mind on a new Mazda MX-5 Miata near Lakewood, WA? Heads up – the 2019 Mazda MX-5 Miata arrives at South Tacoma Mazda this fall, bringing with it exciting new features and an upgraded powertrain.
Over the last few years, the Mazda MX-5 Miata has won more major awards than virtually any other car, and the reason is simple: few other roadsters approach the Mazda MX-5 Miata model’s combination of world-class performance, stunning looks, and top-shelf amenities.
It’s this last category in which the 2019 Mazda MX-5 Miata gets its biggest boost, courtesy of an enhanced powertrain that delivers even better fuel efficiency and 17 percent more power. The new Mazda MX-5 Mazda Miata hits our local Mazda dealership this fall boasting a SKYACTIV®-G 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that outputs 181 horsepower and 151 lb-ft of torque, along with a redline increase from 6,800rpm to 7,500rpm.
How did the Mazda brand’s engineers make this happen? Without getting too technical, here are some reasons why the 2019 model’s engine is the best one yet:
- Better combustion thanks to new higher-pressure, high-diffusion fuel injectors
- A revamped exhaust that reduces pumping losses by 30%. Additionally, this new exhaust boasts fantastic sound quality.
- Less friction: by reducing the mass of each engine piston by 27g and lightening the connection rods by 41g, the brand’s engineers have minimized friction and increased productivity
- A new dual-mass flywheel, designed to enhance responsiveness and refinement, replaces the outgoing single-mass flywheel. In case you’re wondering, a flywheel is a spinning engine component that stores and then outputs kinetic energy.
Aside from the engine, there are other terrific upgrades to enjoy: an available brown soft top, a new rearview camera, and cutting-edge safety features. Visit our Mazda dealers serving Gig Harbor, WA and get the full scoop today!
