[VIDEO] 2016 Mazda MX-5 spied on the road image

The new generation of the Mazda MX-5 has been recently caught on camera while it was being tested out on a public road.

The development of a new generation of the Mazda MX-5 is no longer a surprise for anyone as the model in question has been already caught on camera by our spy photographers. The newest video with such a prototype is coming from an Asian country (possibly Japan considering the right-hand drive) and it is showing a test mule of the car wearing light camouflage on its body.

The new generation of the Mazda MX-5 will be riding on a light platform and it will be assembled from several aluminum elements. According to recent reports, the model in question will be almost 100 kg lighter than the current version and its looks should be inspired by the Kodo design language, which can already be seen on models such as the Mazda6 or the Mazda3. The engine lineup of the upcoming roadster remains unknown but rumors are saying that it might include the 1.5 liter SkyActiv-G from the Mazda3, with 100 HP and 150 Nm of torque, or the SkyActiv-G 2.0 liter with more than 150 HP. The 2016 Mazda MX-5 is expected to be unveiled next year.
