2017 Mazda MX-5 Miata RF: Not Everybody’s Onboard

By  | 

Mazda revealed their new 2017 Mazda MX-5 Miata RF. Unlike the standard Mazda MX-5, this one comes with a convertible roof and it looks amazing although not everybody seems pleased with what Mazda is offering.

While most people liked the fact that Mazda has now added a roof to the Mazda MC-5, it looks like they are not that happy with the design of the roof. Some people commented that the shape of the roof looks a little odd and funny.

Other are saying that Mazda might have gone a little overboard when it comes to the price of the vehicle. Some people feel like the main reason why the Miata is so popular is because it is powerful and affordable at the same but that is not the case with this Retractable Fastback model. So which side are you on?

The new Mazda MX-5 Miata Retractable Fastback will come with two engine options. The 1.5 liter four cylinder engine and the 2.0 liter Skyactive four cylinder engine. Both the six-speed manual and auto transmission will be offered.

    I just traded my 2007 Retractable Hardtop Miata for a Mercedes Retractable Hardtop slc300 due to the new Miata RF being to expensive for the limited features. The RF has less features than the 2007 I owned. The slc300 has autonomous breaking, backup camera and many other advanced safety features.

    I love the lines of the vehicle but I don’t think the price premium is worth it. Let’s see how the price settles once it hits the dealerships.
