Mazda MX-5 RF Retractable Hardtop
HIROSHIMA, Japan: Mazda Motor Corporation has revealed the Mazda MX-5 RF (retractable fastback). The latest addition to the MX-5 family fully embodies the model’s 26-year-old tradition of “lots of fun”.
While staying true to the original MX-5 Retractable Hardtop’s goal of making open-top driving more accessible, Mazda has broken the bounds of conventional thinking to create something entirely new.
The MX-5 RF features fastback styling with a smooth roofline that slopes down to the rear end, and its unique rear roof and retractable back window offer a new open-air feeling.
The power roof can be opened or closed at speeds of up to 10 km/h with the press of a button, and the roof is stowed compactly and efficiently in a limited space.
Despite its fastback styling and hardtop roof, the MX-5 RF offers the same amount of trunk space as the soft-top model.
In Australia, the model will feature the SKYACTIV-G 2.0 petrol engine.
Through the MX-5, Mazda hopes to offer even more people the pleasure of open-top driving, enrich their lives and become a brand they feel a special connection with.
The Mazda MX-5 RF will on display at the New York International Auto Show which opens to the public from March 25 through April 3.
