Mazda May Introduce New Mazda RX-9 in 2017
We may soon have the chance to witness Mazda’s next-generation Wankel-powered RX model.

Mazda vehicles are known for their performance, their drivability and of course their fuel economy, thanks to, for a large part, Mazda’s patented SKYACTIV technology. That being said, Mazda is also synonymous with a particular type of powertrain that is not widely known except by those who have had the chance to drive it. It’s the Wankel engine, and it was last seen on the Mazda RX-8.

The Mazda RX-9 could be introduced in 2017

That being said, we may soon have the chance to witness Mazda’s next-generation Wankel-powered RX model as Japanese publication Holiday Auto says Mazda has approved the RX-9 which will be unveiled at the 2017 Tokyo Auto Show in concept form, and then in production form at the 2019 Tokyo Motor Show.

Obviously, we don’t know a lot about the new Mazda RX-9, but the latest rumor states that it will powered by a 1.6L dual-rotor turbocharged engine which could deliver over 400 horsepower. Its design will closely resemble the RX-Vision Concept unveiled at last year’s Tokyo Motor Show.
