Mazda MX-5 Miata’s current model was launched in 2016. It shouldn’t surprise that the vehicle could be getting a facelift in 2024. The emphasis on what is unique about an automobile is often shared by its aesthetic and performance when it is being redesigned. Although the MX-5 Miata’s engine seems to get the most attention, other parts of the vehicle may also be modified.
2024 Mazda MX-5 Miata Redesign
It is possible that the exterior of the vehicle will be inspired by the Vision Coupe concept. This has had an influence on the appearance of the Mazda3, CX-30, and MX-30. It is also possible that the interior of the car will be inspired by the Mazda3. The result would be a simple but striking design with narrow, angular headlamps and a new front grille. It is reasonable to assume that they will choose this path if they decide to follow the Vision’s guidelines to an extent.
The interior will likely be redesigned as well. The MX-5 Miata may see its infotainment systems upgraded and digital dials used. Switchgear may also be given a smoother design to aid in the transition.
Mazda chose to use a gasoline engine for the next MX-5 Miata instead of using a hybrid powertrain or battery engine. This surprise decision has surprised some. Many expected that Mazda, which had launched the MX-30 (its first battery electric vehicle) last year, would continue on the same path as other automakers. Autocar reports that Mazda confirmed that they will continue using Skyactiv-X technology to build new vehicles specifically for these engines. This is despite Mazda’s Skyactiv-X technology being used for gasoline engines.
Mazda claims that Skyactiv-X’s spark-controlled compression ignition improves performance and economy. Certain models that are intended for Europe do not include turbochargers to avoid a delay in vehicle acceleration. According to some reports, a SkyactivX 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine produces approximately 30% more torque than a SkyactivG engine of the same capacity. This could reduce the time it takes to accelerate from 0-60 miles per hour to six seconds.
Mazda appears to believe it can produce automobiles that are both lightweight and environmentally friendly, meeting its company’s high standards. Mazda fitted the engines with a mild-hybrid, belt-driven system to achieve this goal. This will reduce CO2 emissions and make the cars lighter than electric motors.
What do the Miata rumors have to say?
Response.jp, a Japanese scoop site, has created this beautiful rendering of the NE Miata. It believes these components are from an MHEV 48-volt system. Simple cars such as the MX-5 have difficulty meeting emission targets in certain markets. This mild-hybrid electric setup could help Mazda’s Skyactiv G lower its CO2 output and improve power delivery.
According to previous reports, the new SkyactivX engine with spark ignition would be used in the roadster’s 1.5-liter displacement. Skyactiv-X isn’t available in the US. It could be optional, similar to the 130 horsepower 1.5-liter that you can find in other markets.
Mazda would not install a hybrid system, even if it could help because it doesn’t offer the buyers what they want. The battery can be placed in the trunk, so weight distribution will not be affected. Spyder7 reported about a year ago that Mazda wanted to trim about 155 lbs (70kg) using carbon fiber. However, that would make the Miata more expensive.
Cool tracks with wider tracks are also available. Although we don’t know if the rendering is correct, the 2024 Mazda MX-5 looks just as sexy as a brightly colored, lightweight Mercedes SLK. Mazda has yet not produced a bad car in this decade, as there aren’t many great roadsters at this price point.
2024 Mazda MX-5 Miata Price & Release Date
At this point, there has been no official announcement about the release date or price range of the MX-5 Miata. However, considering the regular upgrades, it is possible that this model won’t be available until 2024. Three cars could be potential rivals to the Mazda MX-5 Miata: the Ford Mustang, the Chevrolet Camaro, and the MINI Convertible Keep checking back for more information as we approach the public presentation of this model. We will most likely give you additional details at that time.
