Enthusiasts have been calling for the return of the Mazda RX-9, and they may just get their wish granted. Rumor has it that a new model of the popular sports car will make its way onto the stage at the Tokyo Motor Show in just a few months. However, the primary sources for the 2019 Mazda RX-9 rumors are Asian websites that are short on details.
Rumors indicate that the 2019 Mazda RX-9 will boast a design based on the RX-Vision concept from 2015. The supposed model would weigh in at under 3,000 lbs. and would make use of the rotary engine design. Mazda’s latest patent indicates that the exhaust ports would come on top of the engine. A turbocharger would also play a major role in delivering more than 400 horsepower.
As for pricing, rumor has it that the 2019 Mazda RX-9 would top the $70,000 marker. That would make it cheaper than competitors like the Nissan GT-R. While the claims regarding the Mazda RX-9 are unsubstantiated, it never hurts to dream!
Hopefully, we’ll see the 2019 Mazda RX-9 put on a stunning display at the Tokyo Motor Show this October.
Every driver strives to save money and taking the steps to increase your fuel efficiency is the way to do just that. Here are some fuel efficiency tips from us here at Bakersfield Mazda!
Drive the Speed Limit
Speed limits are a safety precaution recommended by the government, but they also help conserve fuel. Driving 55 mph instead of 70 mph can increase fuel economy by more than five percent! That’s quite a pretty penny in savings over the course of an hour-long drive.
Maintain Your Vehicle
Automotive manufacturers generally recommend maintaining your vehicle to avoid major problems, but there’s another benefit as well. Properly maintaining your vehicle by performing routine oil changes and tire rotations can help improve fuel economy. Fresh oil and a tune up allows the engine to operate at peak performance while tire rotations offer a smoother ride with more traction.
There are plenty of ways to improve your vehicle’s efficiency. Start by checking out the manufacturer-recommended service schedule found in your owner’s manual.
Running to the grocery store then returning home only to head out across town once more is a waste of fuel.
