Miata: On Diet, Getting Advanced Engine?
With all the attention Mazda engineers have focused on chipping away the pounds on the Mazda Superlight concept, it is not a stretch to anticipate the next generation MX-5 Miata to be lighter. Factoring in Mazda's new line-up of SKY-G engines and the equation is still in balance. Either the 1.3- or 1.5-liter versions of the SKY-G make the most sense. The big plus is nearly 50-mpg efficiency while generating in the neighborhood of 150 horsepower. You can rest assured Mazda will retain the Miata's Zoom-Zoom heritage. - EG
