2017 Mazda MX-5 Miata RF : The Miata we’ve been waiting for!
Ever since we laid eyes on the 4th generation Mazda MX-5 Miata our imagination has been running wild creating new body styles like Miata retractable hardtop, Miata coupe and even Miata shooting brake. What we didn’t really though of was a 2017 Mazda MX-5 Miata RF, where RF stands for Retractable Fastback. This thing combines a gorgeous fastback roof-line with a power-retractable targa top. In other words, this is the 2017 Mazda MX-5 Miata RF coupe that we’ve all been waiting for, expect better. Mazda pointed out the importance of making open-top driving more accessible and the thing is, they may have a point.

The roof-opening process lasts for 12 seconds and can go at the speed up to 6 mph just with a push of a button. The 2017 Mazda MX-5 Miata RF makes it first appearance at the 2016 New York Auto Show, which you can see in the video below. Nevertheless, bear in mind that this is still a prototype and the weight figures still aren’t quite familiar. There are still reachable alternative, although we’re happy to say that the drivetrain is unchanged from the Miata that we know. $2000 should be added to MX-5’s bottom line when it comes to pricing and of course, now, we’re left wondering about the next Miata variant. In the meantime, check this one out! 2017 Mazda MX-5 Miata RF video below! Enjoy.
