Following are some of the prominent features of the 2017 Mazda MX-5 Miata RF.
Miata RF’s display
Right next to its instrument cluster, Miata RF features a new and unique 4.6-inch color display. The TFT display will show its users information about the vehicle in graphics. For example, when the roof is opening or closing, it will be shown in graphics in the display. The display would also show the fuel level, temperature, and trip computer. The soft-top offers this information only in black and white, and no graphics. Also, the hardtop will feature exclusive Nappa leather. The Soft-top will only be offering regular leather on its Grand Touring model.
Driving position of Miata RF
Miata RF’s cabin is more accommodating for its driver and passenger. There is ample room for tall drivers. The car does not feature a seat height adjuster. Mazda was able to save some weight by removing this feature from Miata RF. This would certainly reflect in its performance. Since it is not a tight fit, the ride would be fun for the driver and the passenger even when the hard-top is closed. The driver would be able to move around comfortably while fiddling with the controls as well.
A retractable hard-top that is very fast
The retractable hard-top has been another challenge for Miata RF’s designers and engineers, according to Mazda. They set out to design and build the fastest retractable hard-top in the industry, and their perseverance and hard work paid off. Miata RF has the fastest retractable hard-top in the automobile industry. All it takes is just 12.5 seconds for the RF’s hard-top to go from fully closed to fully opened. It can do this at speeds up to 6 miles per hour. Mazda engineers tweaked the motor found in the 3rd generation Mazda model’s hard-top to achieve this result.
