For the past three decades, we’ve thought of the Mazda Miata as the fun little roadster that we love to drive. That’s exactly what this car is and what it continues to be for you on the road and track. While Mazda has perfected the fun with the dynamic drive and performance you want, this is a car that offers you more from a small build that you’d ever expect to get. There isn’t any other car on the market today that compares to the Miata and now this car is being offered in the new MX-5 Miata RF model that offers a retracting hardtop roof.

As mentioned, the Miata is a car that doesn’t give you much in the way of power, but it does have the performance items you want. Let’s go ahead and get that power part out of the way then; the engine is a 2.0-liter four cylinder engine that delivers 155 horsepower and 148 lb.-ft. of torque. This car comes with a standard six-speed manual transmission or a six-speed automatic which is offered as an available transmission to enjoy. Both engines give you over thirty mpg on the highway in order to give you the results you’re looking for.

Since the Miata doesn’t come with a ton of power why would you ever buy this car? The MX-5 Miata is the car that offers you the responsiveness you want, two seats so that you can take one person with you on the road and the classic dynamics you’ll love to enjoy on the road and on the track. This car is perfectly built to give you a lot of fun on the road and let you enjoy the dynamics when there’s open road for you to have the ride you’re looking for.

This new RF model is one that gives you a retractable fastback hardtop for you to have the right ride that you want to enjoy. This is new for 2017 and it’s a great way to now have the hardtop model you want to enjoy when you buy this little roadster. The hardtop tucks under the rear deck to put it away and let this car look and feels more like a high-end sports car from a brand that’s much higher on the price than the Mazda MX-5 Miata RF would be when you consider this car can be for you to enjoy the ride.

The Mazda MX-5 Miata is a car that’s actually split into five different trim levels. For the standard convertible, the three trims are the Sport, Club, and Grand Touring while the RF shows up in the Club and Grand Touring only. The standard items you’ll be able to enjoy this car gives you LED headlights, push-button starting, air conditioning, power windows, a folding cloth top, a six-speaker audio system, Bluetooth connectivity, USB input, cruise control and a steering wheel that has the control buttons you want for the audio system and the cruise control.
