Mazda is celebrating the Mazda MX-5 Miata’s 25th anniversary, and they’re doing it in style. The brand is releasing a totally redesigned Miata to commemorate the quarter-century milestone; while the new Miata will see changes in design language and body design, it’s the all-new SKYACTIV engine options that have us buzzing here at Steet Ponte Mazda.
The 2016 Miata will feature both a 1.5L SkyActiv-G engine and a 2.0L version as well. The 1.5L engine gets a respectable 99 horsepower and 111 lb-ft of torque, but that just won’t cut it on American roads. No worries, Mazda enthusiasts! Experts, like Joe Mahan of Digital Trends, expects the 2016 Miata to come standard with the 2.0L engine here in the states.
The 2016 Miata will hit dealerships, like ours here at Steet Ponte, sometime in 2015. As always, it will be a beautiful little sports car, and on our American version, will feature quite enough power to let you zoom-zoom your way around your life. Check back with us often for more updates on the special 25th anniversary Miata!
