Having pre-sold over 170 cars before even landing in Australia, the wait
is over for those looking for the release of the 2.0 litre Mazda MX-5.
In dealerships now, with two engine choices on offer - a first for Australia - the 2.0L variant offers 118kW of power
at 6,000rpm and 200Nm of torque at 4,600rpm. This represents a 23 per cent increase in power and a 33 per cent
improvement in torque compared to the 1.5 litre model which was released in early August.
The higher output 2.0 litre MX-5 also boasts fuel efficiency, with the 6-speed SKYACTIV-MT manual transmission listed
with a rating of 6.9L/100km, while the automatic is rated at 7.1L/100km.
Available in two grades - including the Roadster and the high-grade Roadster GT - and with either a 6-speed manual or
a 6-speed automatic transmission, the 2.0L Mazda MX-5 comes with all the features available on the 1.5 litre models, but
with a range of other stylish additions.
