                THE RETRACTABLE FASTBACK

                ICONIC DNA. PROGRESSIVE STYLE.

                The Mazda MX-5 Miata RF was born from the desire to bring the heart-pounding excitement of driving to a more sophisticated design. An adventurous evolution of the MX-5 Miata, it’s not just a hardtop, not just a convertible. It’s an innovative fastback. In about 13 seconds, its retractable roof slips away, retaining the poised fastback profile with sinuous lines that always seem in motion. Polished, charismatic, muscular. And now, significantly more powerful.

                MORE POWER THAN EVER BEFORE

                This is the addition enthusiasts have been waiting for. The almost entirely new SKYACTIV®-G 2.0-liter engine offers 181 hp and revs to a maximum of 7,500 rpm. Lighter pistons and connecting rods, along with an increase in valve spring rates, larger throttle body opening and a freer-flowing exhaust system are just a few changes made to increase power without adding weight to the engine. Creating balance and oneness between driver and vehicle.

                INNOVATIVE FASTBACK

                From first glance, the MX-5 Miata RF captivates your attention and won’t let go. The flowing lines of its silhouette accentuate the dynamic styling and teardrop-shaped cabin. When the open air calls, the rigid hardtop retracts in about 13 seconds into the same compact space as the MX-5 Miata’s cloth top. Just another example of Mazda’s beautifully innovative solutions.

                METICULOUS MILLIMETERS

                Designing the complex retractable roof was no simple task. It took dozens of engineers countless hours to hone and refine the mechanism. And yet perfection eluded them. Finally, one member of the team found the solution: moving a component by 70 millimeters for the sake of design aesthetics. It's a great distance in engineering terms. But the speed and elegance with which the roof retracts was worth every effort.

                A TRULY CONNECTED DRIVE

                Imagine an archer on horseback, riding toward a target. He inhales and exhales in perfect harmony with his horse’s gait. The horse steadies as the archer pulls back his arrow. A perfect shot. This relationship between horse and rider is called Jinba Ittai. It’s a 900-year-old Japanese tradition, but it’s more important to us now than ever. We strive to engineer this connection into each and every one of our cars. The MX-5 Miata RF, being a true driver’s car, is certainly no exception.

                INSPIRED SILHOUETTE

                The iconic fastback silhouette is a distinguishing characteristic of a car born from a love of driving. The beautiful sweeping line slopes from its sleek roofline to the bumper, providing a modern interpretation to the teardrop shape. From a company with a rich heritage of racing comes a hardtop with a modern style that seamlessly moves from the track to a night on the town.

                SECONDS AWAY FROM EXHILARATION

                Our dedicated team of engineers worked tirelessly to produce a fastback roof that was both beautiful and functional. It had to move quickly and elegantly while complementing the silhouette of this sleek and mysterious fastback. After countless rounds of trial and error, our team developed a truly innovative, power-folding fastback roof that operates seamlessly in about 13 seconds.

                ARTFULLY DESIGNED TO MOVE YOU

                Mazda’s KODO: “Soul of Motion” design is more than just a visual language; it’s a belief system. Our craftsmen’s mantra is simple: If you sculpt with the heart, you’ll infuse a soul into everything you create. That’s why their every motion has a distinct purpose. No line, no edge, no contour is sculpted by accident. The goal is to create fluidity between the exterior and interior, manifesting a finished object that conveys motion—even at a standstill.  

                A CABIN BUILT AROUND YOU

                When we set out to design the Mazda MX-5 Miata RF, we knew the cabin had to be just as beautiful as the exterior. To ensure you feel seamlessly at one with your MX-5 RF, every element within the cabin has been considered—from the tilt of the ergonomic seats to the placement of the gearshift to the functional layout of the gauges, all have been thoughtfully designed to work in harmony with your body. It’s an attention to finer details along with aesthetics that are not only visually pleasing but also contribute to the pure joy experienced by such a connected drive.

                THE MOST POWERFUL MX-5 RF. EVER.

                This is the addition enthusiasts have been waiting for. The almost entirely new SKYACTIV®-G 2.0-liter engine offers 181 hp and revs to a maximum of 7,500 rpm. Lighter pistons and connecting rods, along with an increase in valve spring rates, larger throttle body opening and a freer-flowing exhaust system are just a few changes made to increase power without adding weight to the engine, creating balance and oneness between driver and vehicle.

                DRIVING. IN PERFECT HARMONY.

                Even with the significant enhancements made to increase horsepower and performance, the lightweight fastback maintains a near-perfect 50/50 weight balance. The SKYACTIV®-G 2.0L engine plays a key role in maintaining nimbleness and stability. Together, the MX-5 Miata RF’s balance and rigid chassis create an incredibly responsive drive and an undeniable connection between man and machine.

                SMALL. LIGHT. NIMBLE.

                One major perk about the MX-5 Miata RF is its six-speed manual transmission. It’s small and light, yet retains the short-throw precision drivers love. So whether you’re cruising down a curvy road or dashing down a straightaway, the MX-5 RF’s transmission will ensure an effortless and enjoyable drive.

                LIGHTER BY DESIGN

                The aluminum power plant frame has undergone a weight loss of nearly 20 percent from the previous-generation MX-5. That means a more connected, responsive driving experience – every time you get behind the wheel. 

                A TRULY CONNECTED DRIVE

                Imagine an archer on horseback, riding toward a target. He inhales and exhales in perfect harmony with his horse’s gait. The horse steadies as the archer pulls back his arrow. A perfect shot. This relationship between horse and rider is called Jinba Ittai. It’s a 900-year-old Japanese tradition, but it’s more important to us now than ever. We strive to engineer this connection into each and every one of our cars. The MX-5 Miata RF, being a true driver’s car, is certainly no exception.

                THE JOY FROM DRIVING

                At Mazda, our single biggest goal is to build cars that bring people joy. Cars that make you feel better when you step out than before you stepped in. We believe people should feel rejuvenated and exhilarated every time they take the wheel. Not just on curvy roads, or barreling down a straightaway, but even commuting or running errands. Every last detail is centered around bringing a smile to the driver.

                BREATHING LIFE INTO DESIGN

                Clay modelers are the heart and soul of our design process. They take simple sketches and turn them into living, breathing 3-D models. Every artist puts his passion into everything he creates, therefore infusing a soul into each model. These craftsmen then work hand-in-hand with digital modelers to finesse and enhance each creation. 

                PURE JOY STARTS BEHIND THE WHEEL 

                We approach technology, design and safety through the lens of how a Mazda makes you feel alive. We engineer a responsive drive that makes people feel connected. We design intuitive, driver-centric cabins. And we create safety technology to give them even more confidence behind the wheel. And we do it all to elevate your state of being through a heightened driving experience.
