Raises The Roof Like No Other Roadster: The 2017 Mazda MX-5 Miata RF
The latest version of the Miata is here: introducing the Mazda Miata RF. The RF stands for “Retractable Fastback,” a sleek new design for the iconic roadster convertible. Unlike the retractable hardtop, the fastback is more aggressive and more futuristic. If you want a vehicle that looks impressive and performs well, get the new Miata RF.
The new fastback is a two-door open-top roadster with seating for two passengers. The wheelbase is 90.9 inches, and sloping contours give this model a sporty and aerodynamic style. Premium lighting improves visibility, while a bold front end is ideal for any driver. The Miata RF also has alloy wheels and a wide stance for optimum handling.
Under the hood of the new Miata RF is a powerful SKYACTIV-G DOHC 16-valve four-cylinder engine with variable valve timing. This power plant is paired with a six-speed sport automatic transmission with paddle shifters or six-speed manual transmission for a more engaging ride. When put together, this powertrain generates up to 155 horsepower and 148 lb-ft of torque.
To aid performance and handling, a double wishbone front suspension and multi-link rear suspension provide optimum control. Both come with monotube dampers to help keep all four wheels on the road, and aluminum control arms optimize control. Rack-and-pinion steering is standard, and an electric power assist steering system ensures proper handling. For stopping power, the 11-inch ventilated disc brakes ensure you can decelerate at any moment. Finally, high-performance tires add grip as well.
No other model compares to the new 2017 Mazda Miata RF. Impressive performance is perfect for adrenaline junkies, and any driver can appreciate the bold exterior design. Plus, with state-of-the-art engineering, the new Miata RF is truly unparalleled. This model is set to be released in early 2017—until then, you can pre-order this model today at Wantagh Mazda.
