2017 Miata MX-5 RF: Does it Feature Something We Haven't Expected?
It is here. And it is sexy. And agile. The new 2017 Mazda MX-5 Miata RF can already be ordered! Mazda North American Operation has also announced all details about the vehicle and we must say that we are impressed!
What is most notable about this one is that it will be available with two impressive trim levels: the hi-tech Grand Touring and Club trim level. Both will be offered with SKYACTIV-DRIVE six-speed manual or a six-speed automatic gearbox and numerous new additions as part of the standard equipment.
In fact, many of the features are virtually copied from the soft top models, but there are also some exclusive additions: new Retractable Fastback, 4.6-infh full-color TFT screen, Machine Gray Metallic finish and Blind Spot Monitoring along with Rear Cross Traffic Alert as standard. Sweet.
In terms of technology features, this one is doing just fine. There is this MAZDA CONNECT Infotainment System, SiriusXM and HD radio, smart phone integration, premium nine-speaker BOSE audio system, leather-wrapped steering wheel, LED headlights and taillights and more. But there are far more interesting features under the bonnet. Let's see them!
The drivetrain system is really a sophisticated one. As sophisticated as it could be in terms of mass-production vehicle. MX-5 RF come with a Brembo/BBS Package that brings front shock-tower brace, side sill body extensions, forged BBS 17-inch wheels, Brembo front brakes and red-painted brake calipers.
And especially for the MX-5 RF Grand Touring trim level, the engineering team has included heated leather seats, Adaptive Front-lightning System, High-Beam Control and Lane Departure Warning.
Definitely a good addition to the MX-5 lineup, the latest models surely have caught our eye! But tell me, what do you think?
