The Critics Are Thrilled by the Mazda MX-5 Miata RF

The stunning MX-5 Miata RF has critics singing its praises far and wide:

  • “Even in chilly conditions and drizzling rain, the MX-5 RF’s roof-down experience is nicely comfortable and cosy, with minimal in-cabin turbulence or wind noise and, door windows up, the climate control maintains cabin temperature quite faithfully.”

  • Edmunds: “Mazda’s terrific manual gearbox is the easy choice over the optional automatic transmission. It’s among the slickest-shifting manuals out there, and besides, this is a sports car.”

  • “While the soft-top is all about simplicity and rawness, the RF adds a level of a sophistication and refinement to the MX-5.”

The 2017 Mazda MX-5 Miata RF Features and Specs

This critical praise doesn’t come by accident; the MX-5 RF delivers comfort, sophistication, and power aplenty:

  • Comfort and Convenience: Drivers can add heated seats, automatic climate control, leather trim to the seats, console, and dash, as well as power seating while taking advantage of the pushbutton start, remote entry, and Bose performance sound system.
