Next Mazda MX-5 Miata Could Get Diesel Engine?

Published

Mazda MX-5 Miata

The next-gen Mazda MX-5 Miata sports car might get a diesel engine to go long with a standard gasoline unit.

Mazda’s new naturally aspirated SkyActiv engine, possibly with 1.6 litres and making around 130 horsepower, will be the base engine, but according to , a diesel unit is also being considered. There are some doubts, however.

Lightweight, high-revving gasoline engines have becoming a trademark of Mazda’s sports cars, making the idea of a diesel seem silly. Plus, a small diesel roadster is very unusual and might prove difficult to sell.

While the Japanese automaker is insistent that the MX-5 will remain naturally aspirated, it has produced turbocharged versions of previous-generation MX-5. This leads us to believe that, instead of a diesel, a larger SkyActiv engine could be offered as a more powerful alternative for buyers.

“This concept takes the unmistakable design of the LC coupe and reimagines it as a future convertible,” said Tadao Mori, chief designer of the LC Convertible concept. “It blends all the best aspects of the original coupe with the dynamic design of an open-air convertible.”
