Mazda MX-5 Miata RF Manual Review

The Mazda MX-5 Miata is one of the most popular roadsters in the industry. Having just entered a new generation for 2016, the MX-5 Miata has been refined in every way possible. On top of that, though, the Mazda MX-5 Miata RF brings more upscale features and impressive performance to the roadster.

The “RF” stands for “retractable fastback” and the model is only available in Club and Grand Touring trims. The newest version of this iconic model comes with performance brakes that perfectly complement the 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that delivers 155 hp.

2017 Mazda MX-5 Miata RF at Steet Pointe MazdaThe Mazda MX-5 Miata RF boasts a 0-to-60 mph time of just 6.1 seconds and runs a quarter mile in 14.8 seconds. Models equipped with a manual transmission delivers anywhere from 8.4 seconds to 10.7 seconds when it comes to 30-to-50-mph passing times. The six-speed automatic transmission cuts that time dramatically with a 3.4-second passing time.

The new MX-5 Miata RF is a sports car unlike any other. With responsive performance and pristine handling, there’s no other roadster quite like it. A distinctive design and year-round comfort make it a hard model to top, after all.
