At the end of October, Mazda North America unveiled the pricing in the US for the MX-5 Miata RF (Roadster RF in Japan).
The Miata RF was first unveiled at the 2016 New York Auto Show last March. It is a member of the Roadster family that has held steady over the model’s 26 years as a model with the motif “Lots of Fun.” A model that’s aimed at bringing the convertible within reach of everyday users with its past versions’ retractable hard top, the new model doesn’t just stick to the program but takes it to a new level.
It has a fastback style whose standout feature is a roofline that inclines gently from the roof to the rear end. Along with its special rear roof shape and openable back window, it offers a new kind of open, spacious feeling. The roof can be opened electrically when the car is going 10km/h or less.
Its limited space offers compact and efficient storage with the same storage space of a fastback or soft top model. The US version comes with Skyactiv-G 2.0.
The base price for the Mazda MX-5 Miata RF in the US is $31,555 (about 3,280,000 yen). This price also includes the Club grade with 6-speed MT.
