Report confirms Mazda Miata update with 181 hp, higher redlineby Justin King
The revised MX-5 will gain 26 horsepower over the current model, along with a list of other minor upgrades.
The report appears to confirm an extra 26 horsepower for the roadster, bumping the 2.0-liter Skyactiv-G engine's output to 181 horsepower. Drivers can also stay on the throttle all the way up to 7,500 rpm.
The revised engine is paired with a new dual-mass flywheel and updated exhaust system.
The roadster could also become more comfortable for many drivers, thanks to a telescoping steering wheel.
