The Mazda fans have been keenly anticipating the arrival of the new sports coupe that should be presented at the Tokyo Motor Show in October. It will be the new Mazda RX-8. However, according to the information our team has got, this high-performance car will appear in the market no sooner than as a 2019 model, but it is definitely worth waiting.
The fans of Mazda sports cars have probably been aware that the MX-5 model has been the sportiest of them in the market for a very long time. However, the new 2019 Mazda RX-8 should go even further with its futuristic and edgy design as well as its powerful performance. These two models have been mostly compared because they share many chassis components. But, the new RX-8 will be bigger and have a longer wheelbase. Its chassis will also be made of lightweight materials such as carbon fiber and aluminum. This is one of the reasons why the new Mazda will be even faster and more powerful. Such a reduced weight will totally improve its acceleration and performance. Another reason would be its enhanced aerodynamics thanks to its long and aggressive hood with a stylish grille and the modern LED headlights. It has also been said that the breathtaking exterior design of the new RX-8 will be largely inspired by the RX-Vision Concept, revealed at the 2015 Tokyo Motor Show.
When it comes to interior of the new 2019 Mazda RX-8, there have been many rumors and guesses, but it has not been officially confirmed what you can expect inside. However, we are all aware that if the interior matches its exterior, that would be a real pleasure. We have been informed that the new RX-8 will probably be a two-seater and that only the premium-quality materials will be used to furnish the seats and the rest of the cabin. You can expect many race-inspired and sporty features, but also the sophisticated and luxury details. Being the next-generation sports car, the new RX-8 should include the latest infotainment and entertainment systems, touch screens, safety features and other options.
The most interesting information for the fans of sports cars and speed is probably what kind of powerful engine the 2019 Mazda RX-8 will be hiding under its hood. Well, it has been discussed that this model should get a brand-new rotary engine that could have an output of up to 400 horsepower. The more exact rumor has it that it will be a 1.6-liter two-rotor Wankel with a single turbocharger. Still, we will have to wait a bit more and check ourselves.
2019 Mazda RX-8 Redesign Release Date and Price
