For decades, Mazda has made sporty convertible performance and roadster style accessible to the average driver with the Mazda MX-5 Miata. Now available here at Fields Mazda of Asheville, the 2023 Mazda MX-5 Miata RF draws from the purity of this long-running Mazda model but adds a few variations. Here are some of the performance highlights that you’ll find on the 2023 Mazda MX-5 Miata RF.

Engineered to Astound

The main difference between the classic Mazda MX-5 Miata and the Mazda MX-5 Miata RF is that the latter features a hardtop rather than a soft top and is therefore slightly heavier. While sports cars with retractable hardtops are typically out of the price range of the average driver, the 2023 Mazda MX-5 Miata RF aims to make pure driving pleasure accessible for everybody.

The new Mazda model features featherweight construction and an innovative rear-wheel-drive platform that optimizes its power-to-weight ratio. These features give the model quick, zippy handling and a feeling that the car is operating as an extension of the driver.  

Power and Performance

Under the hood, the SKYACTIV®-G 2.0 engine delivers 181 horsepower and 151 lb-ft of torque. Also aiding in the car’s performance is its ideal engine placement, which gives it a nearly perfect 50/50 weight balance. The 2023 Mazda MX-5 Miata RF is a sports car for people who love maximum control, which is why it comes standard with a smooth-shifting six-speed manual transmission. The Grand Touring model offers a six-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters, as well.
