2018 Mazda MX-5 Roadster

The MX-5 is a symbol of Mazda’s carmaking philosophy and tireless pursuit of driving pleasure. Since its debut in 1989, the model has consistently delivered driving fun as can only be experienced in a lightweight sports car, winning the admiration of people from diverse countries, cultures and age groups. The MX-5 is also highly acclaimed, with around 250 awards to its name – and counting – from around the globe. The fourth-generation model has won a string of prizes, including 2016 World Car of the Year and World Car Design of the Year 2016, 2016 UK Car of the Year and 2015-2016 Car of the Year Japan. A living legend, the MX-5 has held the Guinness World Record for the best selling two-seater sports car since 2000.

With the Mazda MX-5 RF, the latest version of the legendary sports car offers a new dimension of open-top driving fun while at the same time staying true to the purpose of Mazda’s previous retractable hardtop MX-5: Making the roadster experience accessible to a broader range of drivers.

In doing so, Mazda has broken with conventional thinking to create something entirely new. Featuring fastback styling with a smooth roofline that slopes down to the rear, the MX-5 RF’s unique rear roof and retractable back window deliver a distinctive new convertible feeling.

The power roof opens and closes with the press of a button while moving at speeds of up to 10km/h. The roof itself stows away compactly and efficiently: Despite the sleek design, the MX-5 RF offers the same boot space as the soft-top model.
