The Mazda MX-5 RF sports car is based on the classic Mazda MX-5 – yet this time it comes in retractable fastback form with a stylish, folding hardtop roof.
This two-seater boasts a striking silhouette, combining sharp edges and smooth contours to reflect the sports car’s impressive dynamism. Unlike in the standard Mazda MX-5 convertible, the three-part, metal hardtop folds back at the push of a button – allowing you to feel the sun on your skin in a matter of just 13 seconds. Contrasting black inserts tucked behind the side windows provide a sleek, streamlined finish to proceedings. A choice of cool paint colours are available to complete to look – including Machine Grey.
Take your pick from SE-L Nav+, Sport Nav+ and GT Sport Nav+ trims to suit your preferences – with generous equipment levels as standard. Expect stylish, 16” silver alloy wheels to catch the eye on SE-L Nav+ models, along with a dual exhaust for enhanced presence. Top-spec Sport Nav models also benefit from intelligent keyless entry for the ultimate convenience – along with attention-grabbing, 16” Gunmetal alloys and bold, LED daytime running lights.
Enhanced sound-deadening technology and superior build quality mean that driver and occupant can ride in comfort and quiet whether the top’s up or down. Plush, black seating provides ultimate comfort and a leather-wrapped steering wheel provides a sharp finish in entry-level models, while premium black level adds a heightened sense of luxury in top-spec trims. The complete line-up comes with an intuitive 7” colour display providing access to standard features like Bluetooth®. Meanwhile, you can enjoy crystal-clear sound through the available state-of-the-art Bose sound system.
A refined performance awaits behind the wheel of the Mazda MX-5 RF – thanks to two, finely-tuned Skyactiv-G powertrains (132ps and 184ps). Effortless power and supreme responsiveness are highlights of these units, which provide an impressive roar when you hit the pedal. Cutting-edge SkyactivTechnology also means that they deliver lower emissions and better fuel economy than ever. Meanwhile, perfect 50:50 weight distribution front to rear further enhances the experience. Unlike the standard Mazda MX-5 model, you can opt for an exclusive, 6-speed automatic gearbox for silky-smooth transmission. There’s also an excellent manual gearbox for alternative driving styles.
While you have fun behind the wheel of the new Mazda MX-5 RF, you can also rest assured that your safety is taken care of. That’s why the Japanese marque incorporates a suite of safety features – such as blind-spot warning, rear cross-traffic alert and lane-departure warning for all-round awareness. There’s also electric power-assist steering, which delivers total control in addition to agile performance – while optional high-beam control offers smart headlights that adjust automatically according to traffic conditions.
