Mazda MX-5 Coupe Likely to Arrive in 2017

An all-new Mazda MX-5 will be revealed in just a few short days, and it looks like a coupe model is in the works.

According to Automotive News, the new Miata will offer a hardtop version roughly one year after it launches, complete with fastback styling. That means we should see the car sometime in 2017.

WHAT WE KNOW: 2016 Mazda MX-5

The car is expected to weigh about the same as the original Miata, tipping the scales at 2,100 pounds. Under the hood, a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine will be fitted, connected to a six-speed manual transmission. Mazda also says the new Miata will be stiffer and slightly smaller than the previous car.
