The current “ND” iteration of Mazda’s legendary Miata sports car will benefit from a few changes in the 2019 model year. Perhaps most notably, the 2019 Miata will have the most powerful engine ever put in the model, and will rip up to a new 7500rpm redline.
While the outgoing 2018 Miata had 155hp, around the same as the previous NC Miata, the 2019 Miata will have 181hp, a noticeable increase, and making it the most powerful Miata engine in the model’s 29-year run.
Let's start from the new Mazda Miata's power boost.
Although sales have dropped
over the last year, Mazda may have an ace up its sleeve coming into the 2019 selling season. The 2019 Miata will have the most powerful engine in the little roadster's history. The new car gains a sizeable 26hp over the previous model year, making it more powerful than any engine installed in the previous three generations.
