2017 Mazda MX-5 Miata RF Launch Edition Defeats Its Purpose

By  | 

Mazda has just revealed the price tag for the 2017 Mazda MX-5 Miata RF Launch Edition. The retractable top model will be coming in with a long list of upgrades but the fans are not going to be impressed when they see the price tag that it will be coming with.

The Mazda MX-5 Miata RF Launch Edition will be coming in with a $35k price tag which is about $10k more than the base Mazda MX-5 model right now. The biggest difference between the new RF Launch Edition and the standard Mazda MX-5 is that is will come with a retractable hardtop.

While it might be a nice option for those looking to have a roof over their head, the fans also thinks that the new price tag defeats the purpose of buying a Mazda MX-5 in the first place.

The Mazda is marketed as one of the cheapest yet fun sports cars to drive on the road. With a price tag like that, the fans are saying that they would rather go for some other models like the Subaru BRZ.

    So, who are “the fans.” I am a major fan and brand loyalist and I could not wait to pre-order this car which I did yesterday at 9 am, even though I absolutely love the Miata I currently drive. The reviews for this 2017 MX-5 RF have been great. The car is absolutely gorgeous, extremely well-received at the New York auto show and from what I have heard, people are disappointed only to NOT have received the email letting them know that they are one of the first 1000. I am thrilled to have been able to pre-order, so I don’t know what is with your seemingly fictional “fans.” Everyone I have spoken to, says I am extremely fortunate to get one and I think so too! So, not even your sourpuss attitude is going to ruin my enthusiasm. I know a great car when I see it. I’m very picky and have never had a Mazda that was not admired and that I did not absolutely love. So…go buy a boring Subaru. Or look at the price of a very boring Lexus or Mercedes or BMW. Maybe then you’ll rethink your thinking as to the price of this amazing and beautiful car.
