There were various speculations about the return of the RX7, and here today we are witnessing that the 2018 Mazda RX7 will see the light of the day. The first information and confirmation we received in 2015 Tokyo Motor Show and today it is even more certain. Potential fans will have the opportunity to enjoy the new project. Also, a new driving force will be found under the hood, but something about it later.
Mazda’s new sports car will be bigger and stronger than any Mazda MX-5 Roadster. More importantly, it should be more efficient and reliable than its predecessors, and Mazda engineers work to solve typical problems that Wankel engines have, such as high oil consumption and low torque, without turning to turbo variants.
To save on weight, Mazda will probably return two-door coupe formats before deciding on the shape of the current RX-8 model. At the time of production cessation four years ago, the RX-8 had 1310kg, which is 120ks more than the current Toyota GT86 model. As expected, the drive will be on the rear wheels, and it is in support of it that it will be based on the extended MX-5 platform, which is modified to support a stronger engine.

2018 Mazda RX7 Exterior Redesign
In the picture you can see only the model that represents the preparatory phase before production, as certain changes will be made for the production. In this way, like any concept car and the RX-VISION has its own items for change.
What can be said about the new RX-VISION is to observe a higher roof than its predecessor. From the side of the side, the products could be different in order to have more places for the head and shoulders. So this low roof sample with an aggressive line will not fully come to life. The seductive nature of the vehicle continues to be especially true when it comes to changes to the B-pillar, chrome-plated parts and changes on the roof. The windshield is less this time, so it also affects the shifts. Changes on wheels and on the front with the expanded mask on the dashboard are items that influence the change.
New headlights, revised mask and front part are expected with the new 2018 Mazda RX7. Horizontal scales and chrome accessories that are visible on all Mazda models should also be present here. Central and some parts remained unchanged, while the side walls are at first glance a bit larger. Also, a significant change should occur in the front lights because they are too over-productive for the production line and should be adapted to their everyday needs. In the production copy, the new LED light will find its place, the upper LED strip, while the lower part will be like the current Mazda model.
The RX-7 in its design could have modified luminaires with a missing floating spoiler, as well as an altered luggage compartment. The production coupe that Mazda will eject, will generally have a lot of retention.
The RX-VISION has a simple designed cabin that is interesting for many, and it’s just that it’s ready for production as it looks now. But according to the old good practice, some changes will occur such as the central console, the instrument panel and the door panels. The 2018 Mazda RX7 will get a different button layout on the center stack. In modern vehicles, a large screen is added to the dashboard, but it remains to be seen whether an infotainment system will occur and should be mentioned. A comprehensive cluster system and a multifunctional controller are items to look for and to pay attention to.
Interior with luxury materials from leather materials and aluminum parts can be expected on more expensive trim options. The thing is the choice as always. For the reason that it would be more competitive, it will eliminate the leather material and luxurious items on the lower trim options, but on the other hand it is sufficiently equipped to attract customers. The cabin will come full of shine with its sports option in two variants.
Engine and Performance
Below the hood will be judged to continue to be a veil of secrets coming, Mazda has Wankel and gets the name SkyActiv-R so there are no more secrets. The Porsche Cayman could be a good inspiration for a new 2018 Mazda RX7 model that will in all likelihood get a turbocharging that will give the opportunity to produce a lot of horsepower. Certainly one such coupe will be able to make 275 horsepower for the initial trim. We mentioned that this construction will be one that contributes to better aerodynamics and better acceleration. Acceleration could be something about 5 seconds 0 to 60 mph with a maximum reach of 150 mph.
Price and Release Date of 2018 Mazda RX7
The new 2018 Mazda RX7 is expected to be the most expensive on that line. And for now it’s too early to talk about the price. But when we consider everything for the basic version, more than $ 35,000 will be deducted. Of the other accessories and trim options will depend on the price.
