2017 Mazda MX-5 Miata RF Changes

October 8th, 2016 by

Drivers loved the 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata RF for its fun driving style and curvy body. Our Sarasota and Tampa customers will be pleased to hear that the changes slated for the 2017 Mazda MX-5 Miata RF are poised to carry over these attractive features while adding some great updates to improve the model. Read about it below, then stop by Cox Mazda to learn more!

What Changes Can You Expect?

Mazda’s engineers have changed a few aspects of the vehicle’s design in order to improve both the performance and the overall aesthetic of the 2017 Mazda Miata MX-5 RF:

  • Weight: The new Retractable Fastback hardtop will add somewhere around 175-200 lbs. to the weight in exchange for an advanced convertible top that comes down with striking sophistication.
  • Roof Color Options: As of right now, the roof color can be made to match the body for a seamless finish, while drivers can also opt for piano black to give contrast and show off the Mazda’s convertible capability.
  • Height Adjustment: With the new retractable fastback, the 2017 Miata MX-5 RF will stand about 0.2 inches taller than the softback edition, improving its aerodynamics while retaining the sporty coupe’s classic stance.

When Will It Release and How Much Will It Cost?

The 2017 Mazda Miata MX-5 RF is in production right now, and we expect the model to hit American shores in early 2017. Rumor has it that this edition will be $1,800 more than the new soft-top iteration due to the differences in roof technology. When we have concrete prices and dates, we’ll update you, so be sure to check back in with us regularly!
