What Can You Expect from the RF Edition?

Mazda has only released limited information about the upcoming 2017 Mazda MX-5 Miata RF, but what we do know points to another impressive hit for the automaker:

  • Powerplant The 2017 Mazda MX-5 Miata RF will be powered by the SKYACTIV®-G 2.0L DOCH 16-valve 4-cylinder with VVT paired to either a 6-speed sport automatic with paddle shifters or a SKYACTIV®-MT 6-speed manual transmission with short-throw shifter.
  • Horsepower Thanks to the extensive use of lightweight materials, including aluminum control arms and aluminum bearing supports, the 2017 Mazda MX-5 Miata RF is capable of producing 155 hp and as much as 148 lb.-ft. of peak torque.
  • Launch Edition Loyal Mazda customers will be invited to purchase one of only 1,000 2017 Mazda MX-5 Miata RF Launch Edition models, which feature special badging, retractable fastback roof, Nappa leather, and a hand-painted black roof panel. As a bonus, buyers also get a limited edition custom-designed, numbered 42-millimeter Tourneau watch.

How Much Will it Cost and When Will it Hit Our Lot?

While no definitive price has been set for the 2017 Mazda MX-5 Miata RF, the current models have a base price of $24,915, with the Grand Touring trim starting at $30,065, so it is expected that the new models will start somewhere in between those numbers.
