2010 Mazda RX-8 facelift announced for Europe

Submitted by on July 26, 2009 – 11:25 pmNo Comment


Mazda has officially announced the European release of the facelifted Mazda RX-8.  The 2010 model year RX-8 will take center stage at the Frankfurt Motor Show this September, showing the same restyling customers in Japan have received.

Some of the changes include a new front bumper, new headlights, and LEDs incorporated into the rear lights.  The front now brings the car more in line with the Mazda 3 and Mazda 6.  Although exhaust tips are now round, the triangular shape is still seen in the red reflector at the base of the rear bumper.  Mazda is also using new side skirts, as well as new 19-inch alloy wheels.

Under the hood, Mazda will use the unchanged 1.3-liter rotary engine that provides 231 hp and 211 Nm.  The engine now has a second knock sensor, for increased efficiency.  Using the six-speed manual, the car can reach 100 km/h in 6.4 seconds.  The car tops out at 234 km/h (145 mph).  New engine choice may appear with the 2011 Mazda RX-7, but that is unconfirmed.

Inside, the driver and passenger will be held into place thanks to the Recaro sport seats that combine black cloth and leather.  A new instrument cluster, steering wheel, and sound system are included, as well as Bluetooth functionality.

Pricing has not been officially announced, but could reach as high as €38,000 in Germany, including tax.
