2017 Mazda Mx-5 Miata RF near Franklin

It’s a dream for most Franklin, Wisconsin locals to one day own a convertible because of how cool and swanky the convertibles look. This is a dream that proves elusive for many because a large percentage of car buyers never actually pull the trigger on the thought of owning a convertible and this is largely due to cost implications. Thanks to Mazda’s new 2017 MX-5 Miata RF though, your dream of owning a convertible might just materialize.

Enjoying the 2017 Mazda MX-5 Miata RF

In a bid to make open-top more accessible to their customers, Mazda has outdone themselves through the newly unveiled Mazda MX-5 Miata RF or “retractable fastback”. Just like the previous 3rd generation, the MX-5 Miata RF has a retractable hardtop but this new model comes with a few more adjustments that have made this a must have weekend or getaway car. Transforming from a closed coupe to an open air convertible in just 13 seconds it has everything one would want from a sleek compact roadster.

Comparatively speaking, the new 2017 Mazda MX-5 Miata RF is aesthetically and functionally superior to its predecessors. The roof, for instance, doesn’t disappear into the bodywork on the new Miata RF as it did with the earlier hardtop models. The Targa-like design of the new power retractable hardtop make the interior more comfortable especially for open air driving and affords the driver and the passenger more space. The new Miata’s trunk space is a teeny bit smaller than the predecessors’ but the difference is too small to highlight. The one significant difference between the Miata RF and the 3rd generation PRHT is the weight. Considering the number of design tweaks and engine modifications that went into the new Miata, Mazda has to be commended for keeping the weight down on the new Miata. Although it is about 120lb. heavier than its predecessors, the 50/50 weight distribution gives the RF the desired stability when driving at high speeds.
