There may be no driving experience more joyful than cruising in a convertible with the top down. However, when an unexpected rainstorm hits, it’s nice to have a hard roof above your head within 13 seconds. That is just one of the perks of the 2023 Mazda MX-5 Miata RF.
Built with the perfect combination of sleek class and sporty style, this two-door sports coupe is both affordable and powerful — and it is fun to drive.
The hard-top twin of the classic Mazda MX-5 Miata, the 2023 Mazda MX-5 Miata RF offers similar features with this one, big aesthetic difference. The vehicle’s other top features include a six-speed manual transmission with front wheel drive along with a two-liter, naturally aspirated four-cylinder engine that offers 181 horsepower (hp) and 151 pound-feet of torque.
Combined with perfectly balanced weight distribution, the performance of the 2023 MX-5 Miata RF offers an ideal balance of power and precision. The 2023 MX-5 Miata RF model also includes the same major Miata upgrade from model year 2022: Mazda’s own Kinematic Posture Control brake system.
In 2023, the most noticeable change for the MX-5 Miata RF is the addition of a new color option for the exterior — Zircon Sand Metallic. This iridescent golden tone fuses the natural world with the style of the Miata and is only available on the 2023 Mazda MX-5 Miata RF Grand Touring edition.
The 2023 Mazda MX-5 Miata RF is the hard-top version of the MX-5 Miata. Offering drivers a sleeker, more formal look with the top up, the MX-5 Miata RF has a more graceful and fluid shape that still transforms in just 13 seconds. The two trim levels for the 2023 MX-5 Miata RF, the Club and Grand Touring editions, come in seven different colors, including the new Zircon Sand Metallic.
Featuring a two-liter SKYACTIV-G® engine, the MX-5 RF provides drivers with up to 181 horsepower (hp) with 151 foot-pounds of torque. Engineered in perfect 50/50 balance, the weight and engine power of the car lead to a responsive and intuitive driving experience that make the MX-5 Miata RF easy to maneuver, as if it is an extension of the driver, a true testament to the Mazda human-centric design philosophy of Jinba Ittai, or the unity between driver and car.
The inside of the 2023 Mazda MX-5 Miata RF is just as sleek and sophisticated as its exterior. The two-seater interior includes refined details and accents, such as heated Nappa leather seats, padded armrests, and driver and passenger side back-panel covered storage. The MX-5 Miata RF also includes top-of-the-line technology features like a nine-speaker Bose® audio setup and 7-inch full color touchscreen infotainment system.
The 2023 MX-5 Miata RF includes modern safety integration features like blind spot monitoring, rear traffic alert, a backup camera, and lane departure warning systems. These combine to add peace of mind to the performance capacity of the MX-5 Miata RF.
Driving a Mazda MX-5 Miata RF is joyful for both its power and its luxury but also for its value. The two-liter four-cylinder engine offers drivers a fuel economy of 26 miles per gallon (mpg) in the city and 34 mpg on the highway. It is also affordable, especially for a performance sports car. The built-to-order Mazda MX-5 Miata RF Club trim starts at $38,950, while the MX-5 Miata RF Grand Touring starts at $35,750.
