It’s Back! Mazda’s Next-Gen RX-8 Coming in 2017
It’s back! If you’re ready to trade your beloved Mazda RX-8 in for a newer model or missed your chance to own a brand new one the first time around, you’ll soon have your chance to purchase the next generation RX-8.
Mazda has already hinted that the 2017 RX-8 will include the ideal mix of efficiency and power. While no specifics were given on the next generation vehicle, the Japanese automaker did suggest it will be based on the new MX5 Miata.
A Look at the Mazda RX-8
The brand new 2017 Mazda RX-8 will come equipped with the latest SkyActiv technology, which is sure to increase fuel consumption. Additionally, the vehicle will feature a turbocharged rotary to boost its power while maintaining SkyActiv compatibility. The new RX-8 will also have the same 2,688 pound curb weight its predecessors have.
The next generation Mazda RX-8 will debut in 2016, prior to hitting showrooms for purchase in 2017.
The original Mazda RX-8 was manufactured from 2004 to 2011. It quickly rose to popularity with car enthusiasts due to its lightweight rotary engine and four-door structure and a surprisingly spacious back seat area. The vehicle was equipped with a high-revving 1.3-liter rotary engine, which allowed engineers to situate it farther back in the framework due to its small size, thus offering a 50/50 front/rear weight distribution.
The RX-8 was widely considered one of the best-handling cars ever made, due to its balanced suspension turning, sharp steering, equal weight distribution and below 3,000 pounds in curb weight. The car is so well-built, it’s considered a great buy as a used vehicle.
It looks like a sports car but has the versatility to make it great for daily commutes. The RX-8 is fun to drive, but practical enough to use for everyday activities, unlike many higher end sports cars.
The brand new 2017 model is sure to impress, and its arrival will be eagerly awaited by those who were sorely disappointed when Mazda decided to stop manufacturing the vehicle a couple of years back.
