Mazda as one of the most inspiring automotive brand names has a great contribution in the industry with its innovative concepts, be it in the sphere of design, built, comfort, safety, or performance. So when Mazda released its flagship model of sports car in the 2020 year market, it surely created a huge impact on the market where many other models in the segment had to face a tough challenge on the sales counter
When asked, the Conroe Mazda dealer showroom staff proudly stated that the 2020 Mazda MX-5 series is so far the largest selling model among the roadsters and has secured a record for the same in the Guinness Book of Records. That being the credentials, the 2020 Mazda MX-5 surely deserved a serious look from those who scrutinize each newly launched car model with a critical eye.
Upgrades Done for the Year 2020
The 2020 year edition of the MX-5 sports model series from Mazda sees some special changes that pushed the model even further in the track of competition. Stepping into its fourth generation, the 2020 Mazda MX-5 gets a mid-cycle update to celebrate its smashing success. The news might excite the prospective buyers as Mazda grants the MX-5 models some higher engine power.
If you’ve already known the powertrain details of the earlier MX-5 models, then you’ll see the same 1.5- and 2.0-litre engines present in the 2020 lineup. But there is also a dramatic change awaiting you in their output scores. Among the above said two engine variants, the latter 2.0 version sees a steep rise in the horsepower count that added 24 bhp, to its earlier count and now records 182 bhp. Even the acceleration timing has decreased by 1 second, making it reach 60 mph from a dead 0 in 6.5sec.
The rev limit got enhanced as well and that too by 700 rpm counting it up to 7,500rpm. On the other side all these engines being combined with a six-speed manual gearbox spices up the handling experience to an ecstatic level, according to many bitter auto critics.
Awesome Driving Tweaks
All the performance gimmick that the 2020 Mazda MX-5 could exhibit is the result of some really awesome and clever driving dynamics, revealed an expert associated with the Conroe Mazda dealership. He said, Mazda has deliberately trimmed down the weight of the engine components to ensure they make more punchy moves than what they used to deliver earlier.
Mazda has also installed the stop/start technology in the engine compartment in combination with a unique brake regen that helped the 2020 MX-5 engine squeeze out more miles from the same fuel. So the fuel economy too has reached an insane score rated as 50 mpg by EPA from a combined trip where you drive the 2020 Mazda MX-5 in both city and highway speeds. To compliment all these efforts having the best possible result, Mazda gave the drivers a more comfortable reach for the steering wheel by increasing its height.
