The 2015 Mazda MX-5 Miata is a two-seater roadster which is sold in Japan under the name Mazda Roadster and in United States as Mazda MX-5 Miata. Its looks is based on small English and Italian roadsters from the 60’s. It was made to be mechanically simple with a powerful kick.
Mazda MX-5 Concept
When it comes to speed and acceleration 2015 Mazda MX-5 Miata offers a lot, its performances are only limited with driver safety requirements. First Mazda MX-5 was launched in 1989 and it was promoted on the Chicago Auto Show the same year. It was produced in Mazda facility in Hiroshima, Japan. In 1998 the second generation of Mazda MX-5 came, and currently the third generation is the latest which has been on the market since 2005 model year. Fourth generation of Mazda MX-5 will come in 2015, and it is going to be the product of cooperation between Mazda Motor Corporation and Fiat Group Automobiles S.p.A. The new roadster will be made under Mazda and Alfa Romeo trade marks.
Redesign and Engine
Until now Mazda only reveled photos of the new roadster chassis. New roadster ‘Skyactiv-Chassis’ was reveled on New York Motor Show in April 2014 and it is showing the front-midship engine and the rear-wheel-drive layout of the next generation Mazda-Alfa Romeo vehicle. New 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata will be much more compact then previous generations of this vehicle. Mazda will try to put the powerful engine more towards the gravity center of the vehicle, which will made it more stable and easy to drive, especially while racing. Mazda also plans to cut off at least 220 pounds of new generations MX-5 weight which will make it faster and much more fuel efficient. Mazda MX-5 was already known for its light weight. Last year’s model weighted only 2710 pounds and with this year’s change it is going to become on of the fastest and most fuel efficient roadsters in its class.
It is also hard to predict the engine solution for the new Mazda MX-5. We only know that it will come with rear wheel drive, that engine will be moved towards the center of the vehicle and that’s really possible Mazda MX-5 will come with 2,0 litre turbocharged engine. It is hard to predict its output, but we hope it is not going to be less then 250 horsepower and 210 pound feet of torque.
New MX-5 Interior
It is hard to predict what is going to be placed inside new Mazda MX-5 cabin. We hope it is not going to come out as classic roadster with minimal interior equipment and retro cabin styling. We expect that Mazda-Fiat cooperation will bring up some top-class interior design with vast number of features to make this fast ride more comfortable.
2015 Mazda MX-5 Miata Price and Release Date
Distributions are because of start this summertime, along with the remainder of the 2015 MX-5 assortment. Price and release date of the new 2015 Mazda MX-5 Miata for the standard versions begin at $23,970 including $795 in location. The anniversary model will cost its 100 customers $33,000. We expect some new information to come during the fall of 2014 and new Mazda roadster will probably hit the dealer shops in the beginning of 2015.
