2017 Mazda MX-5 RF new looks

2017 Mazda MX-5 RF new looksRF stands for “retractable fastback,” which means this is an MX-5 with a hardtop that folds away. It’s not the first MX-5 with a folding hardtop; that was an option with the previous generation car. But this is the first one to look quite different from the regular soft top car. While the roof above your head can be stowed in seconds, the car retains its fastback shape thanks to the buttresses that slope down behind the doors.

The Miata has long held a special place in my heart — much longer than I’ve been trying, though still without success, to convince my wife that we need to own one. It’s about the closest there’s been to the perfect sports car in my lifetime, and definitely the closest in my price range. It’s not a car that’s predicated upon pure power but rather balance and agility. It stands to reason, then, that any additional heft — say like the weight of a retractable hardtop — threatens to throw the car’s equilibrium out of whack.

The MX-5 RF will be available in two trim levels — GS and GT — with several option packages available. Starting price is $38,800. The optional Sport Package ($4,400) cranks up the heat with the addition of 17-inch forged BBS wheels, Brembo front brakes and red painted calipers, plus Recaro sport seats.

The GT starts at $42,200, with leather seats, Bose premium audio system with nine speakers, automatic climate control and safety features such as lane departure warning and high-beam control.
