With its premium performance features, the Mazda MX-5 RF delivers a flawless driving experience.
When we set out to design the Mazda MX-5 RF, we knew the cabin had to be just as beautiful as the exterior. It also had to evoke a sense of excitement for the road ahead. So, we made sure every detail was purposefully placed to make driving better.
Mazda’s KODO: “Soul of Motion” design is more than just a visual language; it’s a belief system. Our craftsmen’s mantra is simple: If you sculpt with the heart, you’ll infuse a soul into everything you create. No line, no edge, no contour is by accident.
With its low, striking stance and beautifully balanced body, Mazda MX-5 RF doesn’t just capture your attention but captures the very essence of our KODO - Soul of Motion design philosophy.
The power retractable hardtop consists of front-, middle- and read-roof sections and the rear window glass panel. When open, the rear roof remains on the body while the other parts are stowed in the space behind the seats. Opening/closing the roof is done by simply pressing the switch on the front console, even when MX-5 RF is in motion (at speeds up to 10km/h). The movements of each roof section are synchronized and overlapped to achieve smooth, fast operation. Operation is confirmed by a five-step animation shown in the multi-information display in the meter cluster.
At Mazda, our single biggest goal is to build cars that bring people joy. Cars that make you feel better when you step out than before you stepped in. We believe people should feel rejuvenated and exhilarated every time they take the wheel. Not just on curvy roads, or barreling down a straightaway, but even commuting or running errands.
We approach technology, design, and safety through the lens of how a Mazda makes you feel alive. We engineer a responsive drive that makes people feel connected. We design intuitive, driver-centric cabins. And we create safety technology to give them even more confidence behind the wheel.
Adaptive LED Headlights offers the driver greater support for recognizing potential hazards when driving at night. The system improves night visibility and helps the driver avoid hazardous situations by combining the use of Glare-free High Beam (featuring an adjustable illumination range) and Wide-range Low Beam.
BSM uses 24GHz quasi-milliwave radar sensors to detect vehicles in the blind spots behind and to the side, and using a turn signal while BSM detects a vehicle triggers visual and audio warnings. RCTA uses the same sensors to alert the driver when it detects vehicles approaching from either side during reversing operations.
Advanced SCBS detects vehicles and pedestrians* in front of the vehicle and automatically applies the brakes to help avoid collisions and mitigate collision damage while driving forward. When reversing, SCBS R detects vehicles and obstacles behind and automatically applies the brakes to help mitigate collision damage. *Detection of pedestrians and consequent automatic braking are not available in certain countries and regions.
All grades feature front airbags as standard equipment for both seats. Side airbags with a head-protecting cell help safeguard occupants' heads from injury inﬂicted by walls or poles in a collision, even when the top is down.
LDWS senses lane markings on the road surface. When the system predicts departure from the lane it issues a beep or an audible warning similar to the noise a car makes when it runs onto a rumble strip to prompt timely steering corrections. The system assesses driver inputs such as use of the turn signals to weed out false alarms.
The Active Bonnet design releases the bonnet instantly whenever impact with a pedestrian is anticipated, to quickly secure a safety space between the bonnet and rigid parts in the engine compartment. At the same time, the bonnet's inner structure effectively absorbs impact energy.
