A dynamic driving experience
The Mazda MX-5 Miata RF is powered by a small-but-mighty SKYACTIV®-G 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine. This dynamo delivers 181 horsepower and 151 lb-ft of torque for an outstanding power-to-weight ratio. All of this muscle is channeled through your choice of a SKYACTIV®-MT six-speed manual transmission or a six-speed Sport automatic transmission with paddle shifters. And for an even more athletic driving experience, every Mazda MX-5 Miata RF comes standard with a sport-tuned suspension with Bilstein® shocks, limited-slip differential and a front shock tower brace.
Stunning KODO design
From its gorgeous curves to its confident stance, the 2020 Mazda MX-5 Miata RF is the perfect embodiment of the automaker’s KODO design philosophy. Every aspect of its design reflects its finely tuned engineering. Its body-colored fastback takes just 13 seconds to retract. And on top of that, it sports an available front air dam and rear lip spoiler for optimal aerodynamics. You can upgrade to the Grand Touring trim level for conveniences like rain-sensing windshield wipers, an adaptive front-lighting system and body-colored heated power side mirrors to keep fog at bay.
A high-tech driving experience
This two-seat roadster boasts a classy, comfortable cabin. Its sleek, driver-centric cockpit comes standard with plenty of luxury and technology, including Apple CarPlay®, Android Auto™ and heated seats with three heat settings. Upgrade the cabin further by opting for leather seats, automatic climate control and a glare-reducing auto-dimming rearview mirror. All models of the 2020 Mazda MX-5 Miata RF also come equipped with a premium nine-speaker Bose™ sound system, complete with headrest speakers. This sporty model also boasts a 7-inch full-color touch-screen display with the MAZDA CONNECT™ Infotainment System, which offers the available Mazda Navigation System and a three-year subscription to SiriusXM® Traffic and Travel Link. This handy service does more than help you avoid traffic jams; it offers on-the-go weather reports, fuel prices, stock market information and the latest sports scores. You can even request information on nearby parking and points of interest.
Intelligent safety technology
Even though the Mazda MX-5 Miata RF is built for fun, it boasts plenty of advanced tech tools to keep you safe on the road. It comes standard with Smart City Brake Support, Blind Spot Monitoring, Rear Cross-Traffic Alert and Lane Departure Warning to take the stress out of your weekend drive.
