Coming soon to the UK in 2017, the all new Mazda MX-5 RF (Retractable Fastback) promises to put a fresh and exciting spin on a classic. Eight years in the making, this latest hard top convertible from Mazda is the newest version of the iconic MX-5 sports car.
With its simple but sculptured look inspired by Mazda’s flowing KODO: Soul of Motion design philosophy, the MX-5 RF has been beautifully crafted, making the vehicle both aerodynamic and graceful.
Experience open air driving
The retractable roof allows you to simply flick a switch on the dashboard and be driving in the open air within less than 12 seconds. Added comfort to your driving experience is provided by an acrylic windbreak, meaning you can experience that rush of wind through your hair, yet still feel comfortable at higher speeds. Operated by electric motors, a single section of the car’s rear bodywork is lifted, allowing the central roof section to be tucked away securely.
Increased efficiency with Mazda’s SKYACTIV Engine
As standard the MX-5 RF will benefit from Mazda’s award winning SKYACTIV engine technology which provides greater fuel efficiency and minimizes emissions. Choose from both 1.5 131ps and 2.0 160ps SYACTIV-G petrol engine options, the 2.0-litre soft top model has a top speed of 133mph, reaching 62mph from a standing start in 7.3 seconds.
Both manual and automatic versions are available, with a 6 speed automatic gearbox being exclusive to the MX-5 RF. This vehicle also comes with alloy wheels, air-conditioning, a built-in USB connection and leather trimmed steering wheel.
All new MX-5 RF is a pleasure to drive
Lightweight and with 50:50 distribution, the MX-5 RF has a superior handling ability, making it a pleasure to drive. The interior boasts a new, softer leather upholstery for maximum luxury and comfort. Sound absorbing headlining has been included on the roof panels to help ensure a quieter cabin. Although the car the same length and width as the MX-5, the RF is taller, with slightly more headroom, so the cabin is more that bit more spacious. With the slight increase in weight, Mazda has specially tuned the suspension and power steering for a more refined ride.
