2018 Mazda RX-9
Shown up as the next successor of RX-8, the new vehicle should bring up some revisions and upgrades than the former model. Badging as RX-9 version, the upcoming coupe is much expected to gain the noticeable success after the failure of the older RX8. Due to the uneconomical fuel consumption, the Mazda RX-8 should undergo the discontinuation in 2012. After a while of void, the Mazda auto team has been working on to develop the 2018 Mazda RX-9. The next sports car is of course going to be modified to have a better design styling and performance. Enhancing the latest technological features will be a good trigger to catch the potential buyers’ attention.
The future design of RX-9 might not be confirmed yet. However, taking a reference of the Mazda RX Vision Concept, the sports car body structure will be formed to have more aerodynamics styling. The new platform from the next MX-5 Miata and Mazda’s SKY ACTIV technology have been successful to create the lighter RX-9 with only 2,700 lbs, a hundred more lighter than the older RX-8. Moreover, the styling of a four-body will be no longer found as it has been replaced with the two-door concept. In the outer front, we will see the more opened touches based on the lower intake and sharper headlights with the sports hood lifted around the fenders. Moving to the back end, instead of the optional spoiler, the new windshield is also highlighted.
It must be a bit hard to reveal the obvious pictures of the 2018 Mazda RX-9 interior since the vehicle is now still under development. Apart from any possibilities, the make use of modern stuff and premium upholstery cannot be left out to the car inside. Based on the Vision Concept, it remains possible there will be reddish and black theme around the cabin with metallic elements on the dashboard control panel and shifter.
Learning form the last breakdown, the new engine configuration for RX-9 should bring the ability on the more power but less fuel consumption. Thus, the engineer will select the engine unit of a 1.6 liter or 16X (Sky R) with the power output of around 300 horsepower. The company has no plan to present the hybrid option for the 2018 Mazda RX-9 nearly in the future.
The obvious confirmation on the 2018 Mazda RX-9 price and release date are not unveiled right now. Therefore, to see more details on both these two, we have to wait until the official announcement is available or predictions based on the credible auto sources.
