Mazda MX-5 Engine Options

Rumors say that Mazda will reduce the weight of its MX-5 sports car to 800 kg. We have to admit that this would be a really incredible achievement. However, the carmaker is not decided on the power-train and this is why it is still trying different options. At the first, the engineers have decided on the 1.4-liter with Skyactiv tech, but it was impossible to produce enough power. After this one, the specialists tried the 2.0-liter, but this one couldn?t be modified to reach the fuel consumption and the CO2 emission level targeted. The only variants still available are the 1.8-liter with Skyactiv or the 1.3- or 1.5-liter with forced induction engines. We will have to wait and see which one they pick, but one thing is clear, it will have to produce 150 horsepower.
