What engine does the 2018 Mazda MX-5 Miata have? 

Since the 2018 Miata is a carryover model, almost everything on it remains the same as what was seen on the 2017 version. That includes the engine, which drivers have enjoyed and will continue to love in 2018. Though three trim levels are once again available, the only engine option remains as the 2.0-liter inline-four-cylinder engine seen on previous models. The motor is powered by 155 horses and produces 148 pound-foot of torque. Drivers inside this little two-seater will love speeding up on ramps and cruising down the highway (within the speed limit, of course). The Miata also averages up to 35 highway MPG and 26 in the city so you will save a good amount of cash at the gas pumps.
