Mazda next generation MX-5 Miata

Auto Tech
[MUSIC] Welcome, folks. This is the 2014 Paris Auto Show. I'm Antuan Goodwin, and that, my friends. Is the 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata, one of the cars I'm most interested in at this show. Now we've already seen this car debut a couple of weeks ago in Monterey, and here's what we already know. It's gonna be more compact. It's about 100 kilograms lighter, that's about 220 pounds, and it's also a lot stiffer, which is gonna make it a lot more dynamic. But what we didn't know up until now is what was gonna be under the hood. We know in the global market that you're gonna be looking at a 1.5-liter Skyactiv G engine and in North America a 2-liter Skyactiv G. Now part of the reason Mazda's been pretty cagey about specs and numbers is because we're expecting a power drop for this 2016 model versus the 2015 model that's out now. The two liter [UNKNOWN] to Z Four for example does about 155 horsepower in the Mazda 3. And that's 12 horsepower fewer than the current MX5 Miata. Now we're hoping that the reduction in weight is going to make up for the reduction in power. We're still going to have a fun little car here. Now one of the most interesting things about this generation of the Miata is that in the dashboard we've got a LCD screen and a physical controller which means that this generation is gonna be a much less spartan vehicle than the previous generations of the Miata. There's actually gonna be some Tech here. Look to the current generation Mazda 3 of the amount of app integration and infotainment that we expect to see, it's going to be a much more, broad focused car, but still keeping that sort of, enthusiasts tack. We'll be expecting more details about the specifics of the specs, and the power, to trickle out as we approach the 25th team launch, of this the 26th team Mazda MX5 Miata. I've been Antoine Goodwin on the floor at the 2014 Paris Auto Show [MUSIC]
