Mazda Motor Corp. adds a new turbocharged engine model to its Japanese-market Mazda Roadster. The Roadster, sold as the Miata in the U.S., gets a 1.8L turbocharged engine, which increases torque more than 20% as compared with the base model. Other upgrades include a high-performance chassis and sporty interior and exterior packages. The limited-edition sporty version of the Roadster goes on sale in Japan in February, with a price tag of ¥2,570,000 ($23,947).
