It is expected from new 2016 Mazda RX7 to be shown in 2015. Company will try its best to keep it on plan, but it is not excluded that we get new RX7 in 2016. Car will be built to compete with Scion FRS and Subaru BRZ. Price would fit the gap between these two, and from more expensive competitors, Nissan 370Z and Subaru WRX STI were mentioned.
2016 Mazda RX7 redesign
Original RX7 debuted in 1970s. According to some information from the company, look of the new Mazda RX7 could remind of original vehicle. But, it won’t be a lot, since new styling details are planned. Anyway, final design is not set yet, and there is enough time for many modifications and experiments. However, the lighter bodyweight is predicted. Use of the aluminum and other light materials could bring down new 2016 Mazda RX7 to 2800 lbs. That will better fuel consumption and higher speeds. Handling and driving impression won’t be affected to worse, it could be only better. Look of the 2016 Mazda RX7 will be sporty, but final design is not done yet.
2016 Mazda RX7 engine
The 2016 Mazda RX7 will get a new, so called “rotary” engines. It will be naturally aspirated unit, which means, no hybrid powertrains will be available when this car shows. This engine will be capable to deliver 300 hp, but we expect slightly less powerful and more likely that output will be around 250 horses. Fuel economy will be better. Also, there will be choice of two- or three-rotor design. The 2-rotor design is in development stage and this one could be very similar to the engine used by RX8 model.
2016 Mazda RX7 release date and price
Price of the new vehicle will be set somewhere between its rivals. We can predict it to be somewhere around $30.000, which will be significantly less from Nissan 370Z and Subaru WRX STI. Since there is a lot of time before 2016 RX7 will be unveiled it is hard to know when it will hit dealerships. Rumors are telling that debut could be early in 2015, probably in first quarter of the year, so we can expect 2016 Mazda RX7 to be launched at markets few months later.
