In an attempt to recapture the light-hearted, fun drive and performance found in the original Mazda MX-5 Miata, designers are catapulting past style cues into the future with the up-coming 2013 MX-5 Miata variant. A slightly different approach to model revamping? Perhaps so. But here are a handful of reasons why we at Superior Mazda are excited to reignite the old spark with the next-gen flame.
Adhering to the current fuel-economy trend, the 2013 convertible iteration will shed a few pounds and allow the engine to operate under a lighter load. Specifically, we're talking a total body weight of around 2,200-lbs; that's over 200-pounds less than the current Mazda MX-5 Miata. Additionally, convertible consumers will enjoy the eco-benefits of Mazda SkyActiv technology integrated into the 1.3-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine. One Automoblog author notes, "SkyActiv will help ensure the car posts impressive fuel economy figures."1
Integrating a bit of new into the old, MX-5 Miata masterminds have hinted at using a bit of the Takeri Concept design language which was recently revealed at the 2011 Tokyo Auto Show. Under the title KODO: Soul of Motion, the design platform offers a sleeker, more alluring yet aggressive style and is slated to be found in many upcoming new Mazda models.
