There’s something freeing about getting behind the wheel of a lightweight roadster and venturing to the open road, with the ability to focus more on the journey than the destination. It is for those drivers that Mazda has spent nearly 30 years perfecting its flagship roadster, the MX-5 Miata.
The MX-5 has brought joy to millions of drivers across the world, and now it has been perfected with SKYACTIV-G 2.0-liter engine with a power increase of 26 horsepower and 3 lb-ft of torque and an increased redline from 6,800 rpm to 7,500 rpm compared to last year’s model. Complemented by new features that include a brown soft top option, tilt and telescoping steering column, more safety features, such as a standard rearview camera, and three new options packages, MX-5 continues its mission of innovating to preserve the passion of driving a pure, lightweight sports car.
Further honing the thrill of each drive, the Mazda MX-5 RF features a hardtop that opens and closes in just 13 seconds with a simple press of a switch. New for 2019, the SKYACTIV-G 2.0-liter engine receives a power increase of 26 horsepower and 3 lb-ft of torque, while increasing the redline from 6,800 rpm to 7,500 rpm compared to last year’s model. Seen as the more sophisticated take on the MX-5 soft top, MX-5 RF includes a 4.6-inch, fullcolor TFT display, which now adopts the available Traffic Sign Recognition. Additional features include a tilt and telescoping steering column, Smart City Brake Support, standard rearview camera and two new package options.
