REAR CROSS TRAFFIC ALERT
When backing up, this feature helps detect a vehicle approaching from the side and promptly alerts the driver with an audible warning,9 as well as a visual warning, in either side mirror and the display screen.
At first glance, the MX-5 RF captivates your attention and won’t let go. The flowing lines of its silhouette accentuate the styling and tear drop shaped cabin. When the open air beckons, the rigid hardtop retracts into the trunk, in about 13 seconds, without sacrificing space for your weekend getaway essentials.
The MX-5 Miata convertible is inspired by classic roadsters of the 1960s. But that inspiration is expressed in a way that’s pure Mazda. With the sleek lines of our Kodo design, it communicates a sense of fluid motion, even at a standstill—and practically begs to be driven.
Drawing from the purity of the MX-5 Miata Roadster, the MX-5 Miata RF connects car and driver with elegance and ingenuity. Its Skyactiv®-G 2.0 engine delivers 181 hp and 151 lb-ft of torque to create an ideal power-to-weight ratio. The placement of this engine helps the MX-5 RF maintain a nearly perfect 50/50 weight balance. Behind the wheel, you feel as though your MX-5 RF is an extension of your body, anticipating and answering your every command.
