The new Mazda MX-5 could be pushed by a small four-cylinder 1.3 turbo with all the changes introduced by technology SkyActiv. This new unit is to replace the four-cylinder naturally aspirated 1.8 and 2.0, is characterized by the presence of direct injection of fuel, variable valve timing, lighter components, designed to reduce internal friction and, possibly, a new system exhaust manifolds designed to ensure better flow of gases.
uilt on a new platform SkyActiv, called D-platform, the fourth-generation Miata will undergo a radical weight-loss diet: According to a former insider of the house, Mazda engineers would take well to 275 kg 1075 kg empty (without driver) of the the model. This would ensure a total mass of only 800 kg. More than 155 kg less even than the first generation MX-5, launched in 1989 but with a degree of safety and torsional stiffness is very different.
A value of weight to a minimum should be achieved through the adoption of smarter construction materials, mechanical components lighter. A minimalist approach in which the reduction of the weight of the chassis and the engine would create a “virtuous circle” in which the masses would also reduce the transmission, brakes, suspension, etc etc. The new MX-5 will probably smaller than at present, especially in width, to reduce the total frontal area. The styling, however, will be an evolution of what we saw in the early hours three generations of the model, while taking into consideration the style Kodo, seen on the Shinari Concept and the Concept of the taker.
