Drive Together

Awaken the driver in you


From our award-winning SKYACTIV Technology and stunning KODO design, everything in the MX-5 RF has been carefully designed to deliver driving pleasure and enhance the power of those sitting behind the wheel. Feel an instant intimate bond with the MX-5 RF, what we call Jinba Ittai. The car’s head-turning looks are vividly brought to life in Soul Red Crystal, our new body colour with its intensely vibrant energy, rich depth and gloss.  


The Mazda MX-5 RF features a retractable hardtop that has been beautifully crafted using the flowing KODO: Soul of Motion design theme. This advanced roof can be opened while driving (up to 10km/h), and transfers you from the quiet of the cabin to the exhilarating joy of open air driving in just 13 seconds.  


It’s the very best of both open and closed top driving.
