UPDATE: The all-new MX-5 HAS NOW BEEN REVEALED.

Mazda's new MX-5 has been the subject of much speculation over the past year, and Mazda itself has been only too happy to drop a few key details on its next-generation sports car.

It is known that Mazda is aiming to return the popular roadster to its roots as a small, lightweight sports car. While the current model gets as low as 1095kg, it's a little more than 150kg heavier than its first ancestor, and noticeably larger.

With the new MX-5, Mazda is expected to reduce its bulk, with perhaps a more compact body for even sharper handling.

What's not known is what will power the new car. Reports in recent months have suggested that the Japanese market will get a 1.5 litre SkyActiv engine producing around 95kW, with a 110kW 2.0 litre version destined for the US.

More recent reports however suggest that a turbocharged version of Mazda's 1.3 litre SkyActiv engine could be on the cards, churning out as much as 150kW.

While past versions of the MX-5 have been offered with turbocharging in various countries - including Australia and Japan - a standard-fit turbo engine in the new model would be a first.

Whatever Mazda decides to slot into the new MX-5's engine bay, the new model should prove a strong rival for the likes of Toyota's new 86 rear-wheel-drive coupe - provided the price is right.

UPDATE: The all-new MX-5 HAS NOW BEEN REVEALED.
