Mazda Debuts Retractable Hardtop Model MX-5 RF
FREMONT, CA: Mazda Motor Corporation has revealed its Mazda MX-5 RF (retractable fastback) open top model and has assured that the car will be on display at the New York International Auto Show. The goal for designing the MX-5 RF was to create the ideal form for a hardtop version of the MX-5 and is the latest addition to the MX-5 family. The two passenger car fully embodies the model's 26-year-old tradition of "lots of fun". While staying true to the original MX-5 Retractable Hardtop's purpose of making open-top driving more accessible, Mazda has gone beyond the line of conventional thinking to create something entirely new.
Features of the MX-5 RF include fastback styling with a smooth rear roof sloping down gently towards the rear end. The car’s unique rear roof and retractable back window offer a new open-air feeling. With the overhead panels and back window stowed out of sight the rear roof stays in position when the top is down, which is a unique differentiating factor among hardtop models. Moreover, the MX-5 RF offers the same amount of trunk space as the soft-top model.
The power roof can be opened or closed at speeds of up to 10 km/h with the press of a button, and the roof is packed neatly and efficiently in a limited space. Despite its fastback styling and hardtop roof, the MX-5 RF offers the same amount of trunk space as the soft-top model.
The car will feature either the SKYACTIV-G 1.5 or SKYACTIV-G 2.0 petrol engine. The North American model will have the SKYACTIV-G 2.0.
