For the 2019 MX-5 RF, Mazda engineers focused on crafting an even more powerful, nimble drive. Fine-tuning includes using ultra-lightweight pistons and lighter connecting rods to enable higher rpms, improved combustion chamber and a larger exhaust manifold. You get more power when you need it and a remarkably agile ride.
For the 2019 MX-5 RF, Mazda engineers increased horsepower to 181 hp @ 7,000 rpm. You enjoy even better overall power and performance, especially at higher speeds and that joyful, effortless feeling behind the wheel.
Mazda engineers upped torque to 151 lb. ft. @ 4,000 rpm. Torque is what generates the power to make horsepower relevant. Higher torque means better acceleration and power to move you, and is especially important at lower speeds.
KODO “Soul of Motion” design language is not just a curve in the side panels or the shape of a headlight. You’ll find its essence in every element of the MX-5 RF. It accounts for both the beauty of the RF and the aerodynamics of the RF, evoking the desire to get in and drive and delivering superior performance.
With its distinct KODO design, Mazda adorns each vehicle with a distinguished yet energetic look and feel that’s accompanied by uncompromised craftsmanship and engineering.
Mazda consumes more clay than any other manufacturer in an effort to realize the imaginations of our designers. The result is a fine-tuned work of art that is made passionately for the enjoyment of driving enthusiasts.
At Mazda, we’re all about proactive safety measures that swing into action to alert you so that you can avoid a collision or lessen its impact. Now with more standard i-ACTIVSENSE features, our suite of safety technologies help you stay in tune with your MX-5 RF and focus on the road ahead.
Lane Departure Warning System (LDWS)
LDWS automatically senses lane markings on the road and alerts the driver when it predicts the vehicle is going to unintentionally depart from its lane. Now standard on all MX-5 RF models.
Traffic Sign Recognition System (TSR)
The Traffic Sign Recognition†† uses cameras to read road signs such as speed limit, do not enter and stop signs‡. This information then shows up on the 4.6” multi-information display.
Wide-angle Rearview Camera
To complement i-ACTIVSENSE safety technology, the 2019 MX-5 RF also comes with a rearview camera. Just power on your MX-5 RF and shift your MX-5 RF into reverse. A rearview display then shows on your MAZDA CONNECT screen, allowing you to navigate obstacles behind the vehicle. Standard on all MX-5 RF models.
‡TSR functionality may not be compatible with all regional road signs in Canada.
††Standard on the GT model.
