The Mazda MX-5 Miata RF’s Performance Features


As one of the most popular hard top convertibles for decades, the Mazda Miata has a dedicated following among professional race drivers and amateurs alike. The new Mazda MX-5 Miata RF trim brings plenty of power to the list of design and performance features and is sure to excite drivers who are already enthusiasts of this vehicle class.

The 2.0-liter engine delivers 180 horsepower and doesn’t redline until it reaches 7,500 rpm. An innovative redesign of rods and pistons lightened their weight without sacrificing strength, making the engine more efficient. The 151 pound-feet of torque allow the Miata the power to dig in and accelerate quickly from a standstill, reaching a speed of 60 mph in just under six seconds.

The Mazda MX-5 Miata RF six-speed transmission has optimized gear ratios for superior performance. When shifting into upper gears, the throw distance is short, allowing for quick transition to higher speeds as you accelerate.
