Mazda MX-5 RF buying guide

Why buy the Mazda MX-5 RF?

The Mazda MX-5 RF takes everything that’s great about the MX-5 convertible and adds a hard-top roof that gives you extra security and comfort without adding too much cost or removing the thrill of driving. ‘RF’ stands for retractable fastback: the section of roof above the seats slides back electrically to give you a ‘wind in the hair’ experience while leaving the back window in place. With the roof up, the RF is quieter than a standard MX-5 so it’s better suited to long journeys while remaining fun and agile on a favourite country road.

Mazda MX-5 RF range and updates

The MX-5 RF has been sold new since 2017, two years after the soft-top MX-5 was launched. Two petrol engines are available, a 1.5-litre and a 2.0-litre with 160hp or 184hp. Most models have a manual gearbox; only the 2.0-litre engine is available with an automatic. You can choose from three trim and equipment packages – SE-L, Sport and GT Sport. The terms ‘Nav’, ‘Nav+’ and ‘Tech’ denote extra features. There are also some special-edition models, including the 30th Anniversary honouring the original MX-5’s debut in 1989.  

Mazda MX-5 RF tech and features

The MX-5 RF comes very well equipped. All models have climate control, heated seats, cruise control, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity. Many also have sat nav, leather upholstery and a powerful Bose stereo. Safety equipment includes traffic sign recognition and lane-departure warning. Automatically-dimming LED headlights and blindspot monitoring are fitted to high-spec models, as well.

Mazda MX-5 RF running costs and value

The MX-5 RF is proof that sports cars don’t have to be expensive to buy. And, with generous standard equipment, it’s very good value. It doesn’t cost much to run, either. According to official figures, models with a manual gearbox can give 40-44mpg, while automatics give up to 37mpg. Road tax and insurance costs are relatively low.

Mazda MX-5 RF vs rivals

There are very few other hard-top convertible sports cars like the MX-5 RF – only the BMW Z4 and Mercedes-Benz SLC, both of which cost considerably more. Affordable soft-top rivals include the Fiat 124 Spider and Abarth 124 Spider, both of which share many mechanical parts with the MX-5. You could also consider the costlier Audi TT. Of all of them, the MX-5 is the most fun to drive and the best value; the RF adds an extra layer of comfort and security that may matter to you.
