The real Mazda fans know that the RX-Vision concept made its debut at the 2015 Tokyo Motor Show. Well, according to the information we have got, this concept will serve as an inspiration for the upcoming Mazda RX-9. The new RX-9 has been planned to hit the showrooms as a 2019 model with some significant upgrades and a rotary engine as the most important.
The 2019 Mazda RX-9 is going to hit the market as an attractive sports coupe. This two-door, long-nosed high-performance car will have a unique and a bit race-inspired design that some would compare to the well-known MX-5 model. If you remember the MX-5, you are aware that it has come with a larger wheelbase. However, these two models will probably share the platform so you will notice many familiar exterior details on the chassis of the new MX-9. Besides its brand-new rotary engine under the hood, there are other features that will improve the total performance and make the new Mazda more powerful. For instance, the chassis will most likely be made of lightweight materials such as aluminum. You can guess that such a reduced weight next to its enhanced aerodynamics can only contribute the acceleration and other specifications of the new RX-9.
Being the next-generation sports coupe, the 2019 Mazda RX-9 has been expected to provide the ultimate comfort and a perfect combination of sporty and luxurious details inside. As far as we know, the new RX-9 will be able to accommodate a driver and one passenger, so it will come with two seats only. Be that as it may, the seats should be covered in fine leather or some high-quality cloth and be adjustable and supportive. The other high-quality materials should also be used to furnish the cabin. When it comes to technology, we hope for an upgraded dashboard with the newly-designed instrument cluster and center console. The new RX-9 will probably get at least one touch-screen display and the infotainment system. Safety features will also be included, but we hope for more details in terms of this section soon.
As we have already mentioned in the intro, the 2019 Mazda RX-9 will use a rotary engine under its hood, which has probably been the most distinctive feature worth mentioning. Namely, it will be a 1.6-liter two-rotor Wankel engine with a single turbocharger and it should produce more than 400 horsepower. This makes it more powerful engine than the 1.3-liter found in the RX-8 model. The transmission and other numbers have still been a mystery, but we are sure that you will be more than satisfied with the total output of the new RX-9.
2019 Mazda RX-9 Release Date and Price
The new Mazda RX-9 should be expected to hit the showrooms as a 2019 model, but the release date has not been confirmed yet. You should be aware that it will not be cheap with the estimated price starting around $50,000.
