One of the reasons we love being Mazda dealers in Ft. Myers, FL is that we get breaking news about Mazda cars that we can share with you. Recently, we learned about some of the new things you can look forward to on the 2019 Mazda MX-5 Miata.

According to the Mazda brand, the Mazda MX-5 Miata has “never been about power.” Instead, the vehicle is all about helping motorists and their passengers fall in love with driving. When it hits dealerships this fall, the 2019 Mazda MX-5 Miata will make it even easier for you to fall in love with driving because of the Jinba Ittai, or horse and rider as one, engineering philosophy behind its thoughtful design.

The Mazda brand’s engineers tweaked the SKYACTIV®-G 2.0-liter engine in the Mazda MX-5 Miata with the goal of improving the car’s responsiveness, performance, feel, and fuel-efficiency. As a result, the engine now produces 181 horsepower at 7,000 rpm, a 17 percent increase, and 151 lb-ft of torque at 4,000 rpm.

In addition to an improved engine, the 2019 Mazda MX-5 Miata has a newly available brown canvas soft top, new metallic, 17-inch wheels which are black, and a steering wheel that now telescopes. The vehicle’s doors are also easier to open than they were on previous iterations of the car and the automobile has revised cupholders and seat levers. A new rearview camera will be standard on the 2019 Mazda MX-5 Miata and the vehicle is eligible for other safety features, such as traffic sign recognition.

While the 2019 Mazda MX-5 Miata isn’t at our Mazda dealership just yet, we do have a full inventory of the latest Mazda models at our convenient location.
