The new Mazda MX-5 RF (see all the details of the Mazda MX-5 RF 2016), the version with a retractable hardtop the Mazda MX-5, comes to Europe but no, still not what you can buy. He made his debut with the occasion of the Festival of Speed Goodwood after having presented in the past Salon New York, ready to submit to the criticism of the british (which of convertibles know) but its implementation over trade will not take place until within a few months.
The Mazda MX-5 RF will not reach the streets of the old continent until 2017:
it is planned that the Mazda MX-5 RF arrives to the dealerships of european to the beginning of the year, 2017 with a price that has not yet been announced but, as it is easy to imagine, will be hypothetically superior to that of the Mazda MX-5 conventional, with canvas roof, bearing in mind that this has a starting price in Spain of € 25,000.
But… what we can do with this version?
Logically, its main charm lies in offering us greater comfort when shooting with the hood putting, thus improving the insulation inside in exchange for giving up the simplicity of the soft-top which, remember, has a manually operated front drive automatic Mazda MX-5 RF.
Mechanically this version was presented with two thrusters atmospheric that we already knew, the 1.5 of 131 horses and the 2.0 160 horses, yes, he has served as an excuse to Mazda to present a new automatic gearbox whose implementation in our market is still unknown.
