According to rumors, 2019 Mazda RX-8 is only a beginning of the brand new line of RX sports hypercars that are so much important to the Mazda right now. As the market of the hypercars grows every day, Mazda, known to reliable, strong and fast cars has to learn how to follow higher and higher market’s demands. However, after Miata and MX class that were not satisfied high market demands, Mazda started with the new/old line of the cars. For some reasons, the new rotary engine, a new miracle from this factory, was used only in RX-9 class, while this one remained the same powerful petrol engine in possible combination with a hybrid unit.
We usually expect that engine is the most important on a sports car, but in 2019 Mazda RX-8 even the design of the car was made precisely for the special class of the buyers. That includes the sophisticated shape of the car that is not only aerodynamic but also modern and attractive, with modern lights and many curved lines on the sides of the car. It represents a classic sports car with the long front end and short and rounded rear end.
Even though the manufacturer has not clearly said what will be found in the cabin of 2019 Mazda RX-8, we can predict only the best in class when it is equipment about. There is also a perfectly shaped and designed dashboard, with the important buttons approachable for the driver, as in every sports car that produces higher speeds. There is also a quality fabric on the seats which could be replaced with the leather in higher trims and large space for the passengers in the second row.
The engine in 2019 Mazda RX-8 is surprisingly ordinary in comparison with the stronger and powerful new rotary model that Mazda made in RX-9 class. However, it is still very strong and powerful for this class, and offer great driving performances. That is 1.3-liter petrol unit that comes in pair with six-speed automatic transmission and produces 310 horsepower of strength. On test driving, this engine increases the speed of 60 mph for 7 seconds, which is average number for this class. However, we already mentioned an option with a hybrid unit which could produce even 600 horsepower of strength and still protect the environment and save the money. In that case, that could be twin-rotor Wankel engine, improved in Mazda factory.
2019 Mazda RX-8 Release Date and Price
2019 Mazda RX-8 comes by the end of the summer for the price of at least $50,000 which is our predictions in accordance with the other models in class. Among main competitors are hyper and sports cars with the similar design like Audi TT Coupe, Nissan 370Z Coupe, Chevrolet Camaro, Toyota GT-86, Alfa Romeo Giulia, and Honda CR-Z.
