2020 Mazda MX-5 0-60mph Test
2020 Mazda MX-5 Review – Specs, Performance, Interior & More – Mazda MX-5 is a sports car that has been one of the best for years. a design that is slightly different from a sports car, most require easy recognition. this time the Japanese manufacturer will bring the 2020 Mazda MX-5 as an update line
And now we are standing next to a 2020 Mazda MX-5 RF. No wrong car to attack all those curves. The road is shorter than you would initially think: 90 kilometers. In two and a half to three hours you are really over it. However, the spectacle is great. The road meanders up like a long string of spaghetti, where you can largely overlook the valley on both sides. Unlike for example the Stelvio, which is sometimes overestimated, the road is wide and certainly does not consist only of tight hairpins that actually get all the fun out of driving. Beautiful, sloping curves alternate with large hairpins where you have enough space to play with the balance of your car. Whether it is a 180 hp MX-5 or a 700 hp Ferrari: you have the space. On the south side you have to be a little careful with a supercar on the bumpy road surface, but the last part and the north side only have beautiful asphalt.
The visibility is good, so that you can see from afar whether there are donkeys or sheep on the road. As we get higher, the fog increases and we have to miss the view. The roof is open. The fresh humid mountain air adds a lot to convertible driving. It is a choice between acceleration two and three. The increased pulling force over the entire speed range ensures that you never have to go back to the first gear. The Mazda is insane. The steering feel is so incredibly good and the balance so beautiful that you notice that more power is not needed. No, the fun of the car is in its purity and beautiful reactions. He turns around his axis and has little trouble with understeer. Send at high speed, very briefly to strengthen the turn and then full on the gas. For a moment the ass seems to want to do something, but the traction is very good, so you would need more power to make it break out. Exactly at the limit of the grip range, the roadster dances from bend to bend.
The road actually goes from nothing to nothing. The lake at the highest point of the road (which cuts through the top with a kilometer-long tunnel) has a large number of stalls and coffee shops for the many tourists, but no village or another purpose. The road itself is the attraction, despite its somewhat dark history. The pass was constructed in the 1970s by dictator Ceauşescu, who wanted to move his army more easily over the mountains to the north in the event of an attack by the Soviet Union, which had already interfered with Hungary. Much of the dynamite and hundreds of human lives later the road was ready.
Despite its bloody origins, it became an automotive mecca. Think of the most beautiful Austrian or Swiss mountain pass, but broader, army and longer. Here and there a stray donkey or flock of sheep will keep you company and of course cyclists and motorcyclists have found their way. No problem, there is enough space for everyone.
2020 Mazda MX-5 Engine Specs
The main change to the 2020 Mazda MX-5 is that the power of the 2.0-liter from 160 to 184 hp has gone. This thanks to more torque at high speeds and a speed limiter that now intervenes at 7,500 rpm. Due to lighter pistons and another flywheel, the engine also makes noticeably more powerful revs, which means the fun factor has increased enormously. In fact, this was the main drawback of the current MX-5 generation.
The 1.5 made more eager rides, which made him the better engine together with his lower weight. Yes, he was less fast, but the fun factor was higher. Not anymore. The 2.0-liter is due to the power increase nice and smooth and the engine jankt to the 7,500 rpm. The chassis, steering, and gearbox are no less than sublime and the design is not without reason unchanged. If you are dreaming of a 911 GT3 (like all of us), just try an MX-5.
