Powertrain Improvements

For the 2019 model year, the MX-5 Miata will feature the same SKYACTIV-G 2.0L engine, but it has undergone a number enhancements and improvements, delivering more responsiveness, higher performance, and greater efficiency. In the end, the Miata achieves 181 horsepower, which is a 17% improvement over years prior, alongside 151 pound-feet of torque. Changes that led to this result include:

  • Reduced internal mass and friction
  • Reduced exhaust loss
  • Improved combustion
  • Dual-mass flywheel
  • New exhaust system
  • New final drive ratio

Despite all of these changes and improvements, the Miata has only put on 7 lbs. of curb weight.
