The Mazda MX-5 Miata has always been about providing a pure driving experience; just a car, the road, and the driver flowing together. This is achieved through compact packaging, lightweight design, and spirited and engaging powertrains and controls. With the introduction of the 2017 Mazda MX-5 Miata RF Club, Mazda is adding slightly new flavor to the traditional pure recipe.

The most obvious difference between the MX-5 Miata RF and the standard MX-5 Miata is the hardtop design. The standard MX-5 uses a traditional soft-top convertible. The 2017 Mazda MX-5 Miata RF Club in Irvine, CA trades it’s soft-top for a hardtop that gives it a coupe like shape. Not wanting to sacrifice the open-air experience of the MX-5, Mazda engineered a retractable portion of the roof that folds into the trunk with the touch of a button. Mazda’s engineering brilliance shines through in the design as the roof does not take up any more space than the cloth top when it is stowed, so there is no luggage penalty with the RF. Inside, you’ll find a cockpit focused on helping the driver focus on the road. Two comfortable and supportive seats hold the driver and passenger in place. A 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system is available and includes a rotary knob controller for added convenience. The MX-5 also has a Bose nine-speaker audio system and Bluetooth® connectivity. It’s about as pure as it gets.
Thanks to the 2017 Mazda MX-5 Miata RF Club’s careful design, the car weighs just under 2,500 pounds, which is an accomplishment in today’s world of ever larger and heavier cars. Since it’s so light, the MX-5 doesn’t need a massive engine to power it, so it comes with a peppy 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that chucks out 155 horsepower and 148 lb-ft of torque. Power is sent to the rear wheels through one of the crispest shifting six-speed manuals on the market today. A six-speed automatic is also available. The combination of modest engine and light weight means the MX-5 performs well with brisk acceleration, but is quite frugal with its fuel consumption. You’ll also find helpful driver aids like blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert as standard equipment on the 2017 Mazda MX-5 Miata RF Club. Lightweight, cool unique design, focused driving environment, and engaging drivetrain; it all adds up to a pure driving experience.
