Mazda MX-5 Spyder and Mazda2 Turbo going to SEMA image

The Japanese based automaker Mazda has big plans for its future lineup and has recently announced that two of its most sold models, the MX-5 and the Mazda2 will debut at the next month’s SEMA Motor Show in Las Vegas in two very “special” versions, a Spyder and a turbocharged variant.


After recently starting production in Vietnam, the Mazda2 is once again ending up in our news after the Japanese automaker has announced that a turbocharged version of the popular hatchback will hit the SEMA event in November.

Rumors say that the turbocharged Mazda2 might be powered by the company’s 2.3 liter four-cylinder engine which is expected to develop around 260 horsepower, which will actually be the same as its larger “cousin”, the CX-7.


The MX-5 Spyder seems to be all about performance and Mazda says that its roadster will feature a Porsche Boxter like soft top which will help save weight, along with a lowered suspension, Brembo brakes and a new aerodynamic body kit along with new, large alloy wheels.

Sadly this is all we know for now about the Mazda2 and the MX-5 Spyder but more details like the vehicles’ performance, equipment, average fuel consumption or CO2 emissions should come to light between November 1 and 4, when the two models will be attending the Las Vegas SEMA Motor Show 2011.
