More than likely we can expect to see a choice of two new direct-injection engines: a 1.5- and 2.0-liter. The former may only be for European and Asian buyers, but the US will very likely receive the 2.0. Rear-wheel-drive, of course, is standard, as is a six-speed manual. No word yet on the optional automatic gearbox. Design wise, we’re sure there’ll be some who don’t like it, but we happen to love it. This new MX-5 is lower, wider and meaner looking than before. Mazda says that it’s "the most compact of any generation MX-5 so far." For now we have official photos and the reveal video to share with you, but let us know your thoughts about the new MX-5 in the comments section and poll ahead.
