Mazda Now Accepting Preorders for Hardtop MX-5 Miata

hardtop MX-5 MiataLike convertibles? Of course you do. With their association with free-spirited leisure and high-end luxury, owning a convertible sports car is on most people’s bucket lists. A favorite among drivers is the Mazda MX-5 Miata, with its relatively affordable price in comparison to other sporty, luxurious convertibles and its lightweight, zippy performance. However, the fact of the matter is that convertibles—with their noisy tops and often-cramped interiors—are often impractical for daily life, which is why the new hardtop MX-5 Miata—called the RF—is such a ground-breaking addition to Mazda’s lineup.

Preorders for the MX-5 Miata RF began recently on September 26th, with the first 1,000 models coming in a special Launch Edition. Long-time loyal Mazda fans get first dibs on the Launch Edition models, having received personalized codes with a limited-time offer attached. Of course, even if you don’t need the Launch Edition, the release of the Mazda MX-5 Miata RF is a big moment for the brand. Mazda representatives predict that the RF will sell more than the standard MX-5 Miata due to the fact that its hard convertible top will reduce wind noise and give the model more of an aerodynamic coupe feel when the top is up.

The hardtop MX-5 Miata RF Launch Edition went on sale to the general public on October 3rd, provided any of them were left. The 25th Anniversary Edition of the standard MX-5 Miata sold out in less than ten minutes back in 2014, after all.
