These days, we can find lots of opposite reports about the legendary sports car. While some suggest that the 2020 Mazda RX-8 definitely won’t come, others are pretty sure that the new generation won’t come so soon. In any case, the new version of this famous sports car will come. Allegedly, the company is working on a new generation of the famous rotary engine and should be ready for production soon. Besides unique engine technology, the 2020 Mazda RX-8 should stand out with spectacular styling and real premium design approach.
- Rotary engine guarantees amazing efficiency and unique sound
- Vision Coupe-inspired styling
- Mazda’s step up into the premium segment
- Still far away from production
One of the most interesting things thing about the RX-8 has always been its design. According to the latest reports, the new 2020 Mazda RX-8 will stick to its roots. Therefore, we count on a classic 4-door coupe layout. In terms of aesthetics, we hope that the new models will borrow as many parts as possible from the amazing Vision Coupe concept car, which was presented last year. This concept represents the company’s new styling approach and it is characterized by a real premium look with plenty of smooth lines and super sleek overall layout. Many experts would say that this is definitely one of the most amazing concept cars we have seen in the automotive industry in the last decade.
When it comes to the interior design, we also expect lots of similarities with the recent concept. This primarily refers to aesthetics. We count on the same minimalistic elegant approach, which includes lots of wood trim and other premium-grade materials. Mazda has been walking on the fine line between mainstream and premium segment for years and we hope this model will finally be the company’s step up to the luxury segment. Therefore, we won’t be surprised to see 2020 Mazda RX-8 competing with models like BMW 4 Series, Audi A5, and similar sports coupes.
The most distinctive thing about Mazda’s sports cars has always been the engine. This model won’t be an exception since we count on the same rotary engine technology that characterized the previous generation. Mazda engineers are currently pretty busy with the development of industry’s first compression-ignition gasoline engine. Allegedly, there is also a small group that works on a new rotary engine. At this point, this is just a theory, so we can only speculate about probable specs. In any case, count on a small displacement and plenty of power, definitely more than 250 hp.
