Report confirms Mazda Miata update with 181 hp, higher redline

Mazda MX-5- Front

Corroborating recent rumors, the refreshed Mazda MX-5 Miata has been extensively detailed by Japanese magazine Car Watch.

Articles posted on the outlet's website claim that 2.0-litre versions of the MX-5 will soon pack 181bhp and 205Nm of torque, with the engine's redline moving up too, from 6,800rpm to a heady 7,500rpm.

We like the Mazda MX-5, but have always thought there were a few key areas that needed to be addressed in order for it to become the roadster we knew it could be. We can expect an increase from 155 to 181 hp in the car's 2.0-liter Skyactiv four-cylinder engine, as well as a jump in torque from 148 to 151 lb-ft. Although the magazine drove a Japanese-spec auto, we will likely see these performance changes on our version here in the U.S.as well.

Improving performance, Mazda installed stiffer valve springs and sped up the valve timing.

Police would not immediately confirm whether the person holding the hostages was armed or describe the nature of his demands. The male suspect reportedly asked to speak with the ambassador of Iran, Lefebvre said.

According to Mazda, the company has reduced the weight of rotating parts, minimised intake and exhaust losses, shortened the combustion period, and improved fuel economy.

Away from engine changes, the updated MX-5 is slated to arrive with new customisation options including a new caramel brown fabric top, a tan leather interior option, plus new wheel colour options.

For the Japanese market, other updates include a new telescopic steering wheel, traffic sign recognition, driver attention alerts, and the standard fitment of the i-ActiveSense safety suite. With a range of nearly 1.2 inches, the feature gives drivers a little more versatility in their seating position.
