Mazda MX-5 RF
30th Anniversary Edition
Our engineers know that fuel efficiency is just as important as performance. That’s why they devised a groundbreaking new way to develop our engines, so that you can sit back and focus on the pure fun of driving. Every element of the car has been reimagined to improve efficiency and maximise dynamics. From the body and chassis to engines and transmission, we now offer the world’s best compression ratios. We call this SKYACTIV Technology.
For true driving pleasure, comfort and control are essential - no matter the circumstances. When road and weather conditions are challenging, Mazda’s i-ACTIV All-Wheel-Drive gives you perfect grip, thanks to 27 sensors and signals that check road conditions 200 times every second.
Our i-ACTIV All-Wheel-Drive technology gives you total control, whatever the conditions
For us, Jinba Ittai starts from a driving position engineered by our human-centred approach to designing every element of the vehicle around the driver. Technology alone cannot create oneness.
SKYACTIV-VEHICLE DYNAMICS represent a breakthrough in Mazda’s tireless pursuit of our human-centric philosophy. By enhancing our car’s dynamics on every level and in exceptional detail, we’ve managed to improve performance even further. As well as excellent environmental and safety performance, the SKYACTIV dynamic technologies provide integrated control of the engine, transmission chassis and body. So you always feel at one with your car.
G-Vectoring Control is the first technology of Mazda's SKYACTIV-VEHICLE DYNAMICS technologies. G-Vectoring Control provides the driver with an invigorating sense of absolute control. Precise, accurate and responsive steering gives you maximum grip during twists and turns, even in wet conditions, whilst smooth transitions when braking and accelerating mean you can enjoy the most comfortable of drives.
Ordinary all-wheel drive isn’t enough. Our i-ACTIV All-Wheel-Drive uses 27 sensors to check road conditions 200 times every second, seamlessly switching between two and four-wheel drive. Enjoy perfect grip on any surface, in any weather, and experience that Jinba Iittai feeling of perfect harmony with the car.
At the centre of the driving experience, the refined linear handling of our SKYACTIV body and chassis promises stability at both high and low speeds, whilst driving dynamics instil confidence and offer world-class safety. The stronger, lighter, more rigid framework combine ride comfort with safety. The result? A direct connection between driver and car guaranteeing safe and enjoyable driving.
Perfect road handling; a true reflection of Jinba Ittai.
Engine control technology for unified dynamic performance.
Perfect grip on any surface, in any weather.
Stronger, lighter body and chassis providing exceptional agility.
Our highly efficient SKYACTIV diesel and petrol engines provide an exciting new level of performance. By pushing the limits, our engineers have created machines that can squeeze far more energy from every drop of fuel, bringing you sheer driving pleasure and outstanding fuel economy. Mazda's SKYACTIV-G 2.0 litre is a refined, direct-injection petrol engine offering high fuel economy and the highest compression ratio among petrol engines 14.0:1.
Enjoy maximum control on the road thanks to our advanced transmissions that deliver even more power to the wheels, ensuring smooth, split second gear changes and precise handling. Thanks to an expanded lockup range of more than 80%, the SKYACTIV-DRIVE automatic transmission gives you the direct feel of a manual transmission. The SKYACTIV-MT manual transmission, with its class-leading light weight, ensures a crisp feel when shifting.
Mazda’s i-ELOOP (Brake Energy Regeneration System) uses a capacitor to store electricity recovered during deceleration. This energy is then used to power the headlights, climate control, audio system, or any other of the car's electrical equipment. Not only a unique way to store otherwise wasted energy, i-ELOOP offers improved performance whilst saving you fuel in the process.
Working in perfect harmony with i-ELOOP, iSTOP (Idling Stop Technology) is a smart technology that saves fuel by switching off the engine when the car stops, for example when idling in traffic. It uses direct fuel injection techniques and optimal piston positioning to allow you to re-start your car almost instantly. This means you’ll benefit from a significant improvement in fuel economy.
