The 2019 Mazda RX-9 model showed up in the form of the RX-Vision concept at the 2015 Tokyo Motor Show. The automaker’s Wankel-powered sports model has refused to go off the market without giving absolute best fight in its market segment. This vehicle has received impeccable revisions that enrich its driving experience.
The redesigned Mazda RX-9 highlights a rotary engine, which remains a cornerstone as far as Mazda’s house is concerned. The new reports have emerged, confirming the MX-5 Miata would utilize a teammate to help improve things a bit.
2019 Mazda RX-9 Platform and Features
The concept featured during the Tokyo Motor Show had a 106-inch wheelbase. Even though this wheelbase is considerably longer than the MX-5 Miata’s, the revived Mazda RX-9 and MX-5 Miata are likely to share a similar chassis and key body components. This is especially true considering that it will appear at dealers with the conventional front-engine and rear-wheel-drive layout. Also, Mazda has several Skyactiv components that could become useful in the refurbished Mazda RX-9.
The 2019 Mazda RX-9 represents something entirely new in the commercial vehicle industry. For instance, this sports car conveys a new rotary engine alongside revised exterior and interior elements. Like we said before, it portrays something new in its class which is why Mazda has exercised the utmost care in building this model. Mazda’s inbound RX-9 showcases various similarities with its immediate precursor, particularly regarding design and materials used in its creation.
As evidenced by the leaked images and the last Tokyo Auto Show, the next generation Mazda RX-9 will become slightly different from the previous one. The company has changed just a few details to make the inbound Mazda RX-9 a tad different from its predecessor. The 2019 Mazda RX-9 brings an interestingly large mesh front grille comprising slim LED lights and flabby inclusions on the wheels.
This car lies low on the ground, and it is sportier than before. Additionally, it highlights a smooth-edged truck along with contemporary rear headlights. Mazda has seamlessly designed its lines and curves to represent a contrast between the light and shadow.
The newly developed SKYACTIVE-R FR rotary engine is virtually 450 ps. Regarding body size, the 2019 Mazda RX-9 measures 174.80 inches long, 46.46 inches high and 75.20 inches wide.
Mazda has opted to retain the same old-fashioned cabin design in the incoming Mazda RX-9. Nevertheless, some details appear to be modern and comfortable in this edition. Inside the cabin, a comprehensive dashboard and chromatic details are visible. This vehicle presents a warm interior with two adjustable, comfortable seats. Its cabin section has a mix of grey and black colors.
2019 Mazda RX-9 Engine and Transmission
Mazda’s 50 engineers and designers have tirelessly worked for eight consecutive years to develop a whole new 16X two-motor drivetrain. Earlier this year, the automaker filed a patent to build a rotary drivetrain that would be used in the 2019 Mazda RX-9.
The said engine executes about 23% more displacement than the Mazda RX-8. It also achieves slightly past 400-horsepower hurdle on the road. The end plates of this engine have switched from iron to aluminum, hence yielding substantial mass savings.
2019 Mazda RX-9 Release Date, Rivals
The well-placed insider says the 2019 Mazda RX-9 is bound to become Mazda’s most expensive vehicle ever. This car will compete favorably against such models as Chevrolet Corvette, Alfa Romeo 4C, Porsche Cayman, and Jaguar F-type. From some rumors, this model will be available sometime in the 2019 year.
