With the Mazda Japanese based automaker to introduce the iconic 2016 MX-5 model last year, little it was known about the performance details it would come with, but now, a report has been leaked to talk about it.

What You Get
Ford has a history with high-performance vans, putting an F1 engine in their Transit range before Renault did the same with their Espace. The SportVan gives you a 2,198cc, four-cylinder, turbo-diesel engine with 129bhp at 3,500rpm.
For anyone who hasn’t driven a van before, the raised driving position gives you an increased sense of speed so even if this sounds tame going 70mph in a van will feel a lot different than a car. With a peak torque of 229lb ft at 1,600rpm, coupled with a five-speed gearbox, you’ll have plenty of power from a starting position and more than enough for when you need to overtake on a motorway.
