A lot of noise, great expectations, and an epilogue unknown. At least so far. Namely, for a long time, the date of the introduction and arrival of the Mazda RX-9 model. This model should inherit legendary RX-7 and RX-8 models, in the class of sports coupe. Finally, the company announced that the 2020 Mazda RX-9 will reach the market in 2019. At the end of 2017, Mazda will present a concept version of this model. Presentation of the concept is scheduled for the Tokyo Motor Show.
The Tokyo Motor Show is somehow closely linked to the future Mazda RX model. At this event, the Mazda RX-Vision Concept is presented, which will have a big impact on the future production model. It is now known that the concept of the serial model will be presented in the same place. According to unofficial information, the serial model will introduce the audience to the same place, but a year later.
Exterier Look and Style
We have already mentioned the role of the RX-Vision Concept model on the future production model. Although modeled on the concept, since the Mazda RX-9 will not be identical to the concept. In comparison to the concept, the serial model gets a higher hood line. This change is necessary in order to fulfill the regulations and laws on safety in traffic.
In addition, the 2020 Mazda RX-9 gets less radical exterior design. On the other hand, the dimensions and proportions of the vehicle will remain the same or very similar to the concept. More precisely, a long hood and a short last part. Basically, this two-door sports coupe should emphasize elegance with a low and aggressive profile. Above all, the RX-9 receives full face that is recognizable for most models of this car maker.
2020 Mazda RX-9 Under the Hood
In all likelihood, the serial version will take the drive train from the concept. This means that the new Mazda RX-9 will get a newly developed rotary engine. This engine will, with the help of a turbocharger, develop a power of about 400 horsepower.
Some sources emphasize that it is a new generation SKYACTIV-R 1.6-liter engine with two rotor. Each of these two rotors has 800 cc and a turbocharger. Also, there is a possibility that a type of hybrid drive unit will work. Finally, we need to add that this model should have a weight of only 1,300 kg. With this in mind, the performance will be more than excellent.
