Length: 3941 mm 4032 mm

Width: 1670 mm 1720 mm

Wheelbase: 2260 mm 2330 mm

At Mazda, we want to reduce any particular way the weight of the car. In fact, we want the weight of the next MX-5 soft top does not exceed 800 pounds. The current model weighs 1,130 pounds in his roadster versions. Furthermore, the fact of reducing the size of the next version, we will also use new materials both more lightweight and equally resistant in the structure of the car.

Note that this will also be the same for the model cut-cabriolet.

Average cylinder engines

It also appears that the atmospheric 2.0-liter engine currently uses at home, would replace it with a brand new four-cylinder engine "SKYACTIV" 1.5 liter which would be associated with a turbocharger.
