The RX-8 is available in three trims, Sport, Touring and Grand Touring. A 232 horsepower engine is mated to a six-speed manual transmission, while six-speed automatic equipped cars get 212 horsepower. The six-speed automatic comes with steering-wheel mounted paddle shifters for sequential sport shifting. It seats four adults very comfortable and has two small rear opening "Freestyle" doors making entering and exiting the rear seats much easier than a typical two-door sports car. Standard safety features include front and side-impact airbags for the front occupants, curtain airbags front and rear, four-wheel antilock disc brakes, stability control with traction control and tire pressure monitoring.The Mazda RX-8 is largely a carryover from 2007 other than the addition of a 1,000 unit 40th Anniversary Edition with unique interior and exterior trimmings.
