MX-5 NEW IPM

MORE THAN PERFORMANCE
MORE THAN STYLE

The open air, the Mazda way.

MX-5’s long and storied history: the purest expression of the lightweight, open-top sports car’s fun-to-drive character. Now MX-5 RF brings that unmatched pleasure and awakening dormant sensibilities. The intensely beautiful fastback styling and unique power retractable hardtop are the result of Mazda’s KODO – Soul of Motion design philosophy and provide an entirely new way to open and close the roof.

MX-5 RF: Different, yet the same

Never imagine that a rigid hardtop can fit into a space just enough for a folding cloth-top? Our uncompromising engineers not only accommodate the hardtop with limited space flawlessly, also maintain a light and quiet design at the same time.
