As if the original MX-5 Miata RF wasn’t thrilling enough when it launched in 2017, our engineers have since made significant enhancements to its Skyactiv®-G 2.0-liter engine, making it even more powerful. With 181 hp, a 7,500 rpm redline and its limited-slip rear differential, you’ll find joy in every curve and switchback.
The aluminum power plant frame has undergone a weight loss of nearly 20 percent from the previous-generation MX-5 Miata RF. That means a more connected and responsive driving experience—every time you get behind the wheel.
The lightweight fastback design allows the MX-5 Miata RF to maintain the near-perfect 50/50 weight distribution pioneered in the original MX-5 Miata RF. This precise balance and rigid Skyactiv®-Chassis combine to create an undeniable connection between man and machine.
The MX-5 Miata RF’s 6-speed manual transmission has the short-throw precision drivers love when rowing through the gears. So whether you’re cruising through curves or dashing down a straightaway, the MX-5 RF delivers an effortlessly exhilarating drive. A 6-speed automatic transmission with steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters is also available.
The iconic fastback silhouette is a distinguishing characteristic of a car born from a love of driving. A beautiful line sweeps from the roofline to the bumper, a modern interpretation of the classic teardrop shape.
Our dedicated team of engineers worked tirelessly to produce a fastback roof that was both beautiful and functional. It had to move quickly and elegantly while retaining the silhouette of this sleek and mysterious fastback. After countless rounds of trial and error, our team developed a truly innovative, power-folding fastback roof that operates seamlessly in about 13 seconds.

These details are not only visually pleasing but are integral to the joy of the drive.
