Next-Generation Mazda MX-5 Miata to Be Lighter

<a href="http://lakecharlesmazda viagra vente″ rel=”attachment wp-att-477″>Mazda MX-5 Miata

It seems like only yesterday that the newest generation of the Mazda MX-5 Miata hit public roadways. The legendary roadster is still early in the latest generation but that isn’t stopping Mazda from dropping hints about the next generation. With the latest model dropping to near-1990-level weight, it looks like that trend will continue.

The next-generation Mazda MX-5 Miata is due to hit roadways around 2021 and project leader Nobuhiro Yamamoto claims the new roadster could drop even more weight. Have no fear, though, roadster lovers—the beloved MX-5 Miata will remain roughly the same size.

Keeping with the current design, Mazda aims to cut more weight from the famous roadster. The automaker plans to do so by using more lightweight materials, like carbon fiber. Mazda isn’t stopping at materials, though.

If the Japanese automaker does use carbon fiber as a main material, the car’s weight will drop even lower. Thanks to the weight loss via carbon fiber, the MX-5 Miata would require smaller brakes, tires, and engine, all of which would further reduce the roadster’s weight.

There’s no confirmation as to what else Mazda plans to do to the Mazda MX-5 Miata but they’ll likely be game-changing adjustments.

We here at Mazda of Lake Charles are pumped for more information about the legendary roadster!
