Although there is no official confirmation, you can find many reports around that suggest new 2019 Mazda RX-9 could come already next year. The iconic RX series are some of Mazda’s most famous products.
The whole line of these sports cars started many years ago. The last version was in production between 2002 and 2012. Since then, we are waiting for the successor. Latest reports from toyotamazda.com suggest that the new, 2019 RX-9 will come already next year. Many of these car enthusiasts were encouraged with the recent Vision concept, which has the premiere at the Tokyo Motor Show.
Many believe that this concept is the overture for the new generation of the iconic sports car, despite the fact that recent concept is actually a large sedan, instead of a small sports car. However, some experts suggest that the new styling philosophy will have its first application on the new RX-9.
2019 Mazda RX-9 Concept Design
At the moment, the 2019 Mazda RX-9 is nothing more than a rumor. So, we can just make some predictions, while exact details will be left for the future. It is still unclear how the new model will look like. There are two possibilities when it comes to base design characteristics. The first suggests that Mazda will go with a familiar philosophy. This means that the new model will come in a familiar body style, coming as a small sports coupe.
On the other side, many enthusiasts believe that the new 2019 Mazda RX-9 will be bigger. Some suggest that the new Vision concept is actually a new version of this iconic car. This means that the new generation will be significantly larger and with a much more luxurious approach. In both cases, a situation about styling is pretty clear.
2019 Mazda RX-9 KODO Styling
Just like we mentioned, we don’t know the size of the new 2019 Mazda RX-9, but we are pretty sure about its styling. The new generation will definitely follow design philosophy of the rest of Mazda’s fleet. This means that it will be adapted to the famous KODO design language.
Of course, this will be an updated version of this styling philosophy, which will include many styling cues from the new concept car. When it comes to the interior design, the 2019 Mazda RX-9 will probably feature a little bit different cabin compared to other models from the lineup. We expect to see various distinctive details, such as unique dashboard layout, instrument cluster etc.
According to some sources, its weight will be only 2,850 pounds. Just for the comparison, the weight of the new MX-5 Miata is 2,332 pounds. A full review about Mazda MX-5 Miata you can read at Toyota Mazda Blog.
2019 Mazda RX-9 engine
The engine has always been one of the main distinctive details about this sports car. Unlike other sports cars, this model always used a rotary technology. These kinds of engines have many benefits, but their many shortcomings as well. However, one thing is for sure. This engine gives you a unique feel and that had always separated this model from other sports car. The new 2019 Mazda RX-9 should continue in the same way. Compared to the previous generation that featured a 1.3-liter unit, the new engine will be quite bigger. It will feature a displacement of 1.6 liters and should be even more efficient. Some sources suggest that the new engine will be good for more than 400 horsepower, which sounds amazing. However, development of the new rotary engine doesn’t go so smooth, so there is a chance to see an initial version with some of new SkyActive X engines.
2019 Mazda RX-9 release date
The whole this thing about 2019 Mazda RX-9 is yet to be confirmed. So, it is hard to tell when the new model will come, or will it come at all. However, many experts suggest that this model could come to celebrate company’s 100th anniversary, so it could easily come by the end of next year.
