2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata Output Announced, Possible High Performance Version

2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata Will Has up to 155HP

We have been covering the all-new 2016 Mazda MX-5 for a while, which you can see from all our previous reports.


However there is one important spec we did not know until last Friday: the engine output. Here comes the number:

– SKYACTIV-G 1.5L gasoline engine: 129 hp, 110 lb-ft of torque
– SKYACTIV-G 2.0L gasoline engine: 155 hp, 148 lb-ft of torque

In addition to the above two powertrains, Kudo Hidetoshi, head of Mazda global PR, told media that the factory is also considering a turbocharged high performance version of the Miata in the future.

Although the 2.0L engine’s output has been dropped by 12 hp, compared to the highest output version of the 2015 Miata, considering there is a 200lbs weight reduction in the new model, the reduced output may be well compensated.

We will get you more details once we have the chance to test drive the new 2016 MX-5 Miata.
