The stunning new Mazda MX-5 RF (Retractable Fastback) will go on sale in the UK on 4th March 2017, priced from £22,195.
Standard specification for the entry-level SE-L Nav model includes LED headlights, climate control, 7-inch colour touch-screen, cruise control, and satellite navigation, while Sport Nav models add heated leather seats, automatic headlights and wipers, lane departure warning, adaptive headlights, keyless entry, rear parking sensors, and a Bose sound system.
Power comes from either a 131PS 1.5 or 160PS 2.0-litre petrol engine, as with the soft-top MX-5. Two-litre models also come equipped with a limited-slip differential and 17-inch alloy wheels, while the 2.0 Sport Nav goes on to include Bilstein dampers and a strut brace.
For the first time in the UK, an automatic gearbox option will be offered in the guise of the 2.0-litre Sport Nav Auto, priced at £27,095.
Other options include Nappa leather for Sport Nav grades (£400), and an optional £400 Safety Pack for 2.0-litre Sport Nav models that adds high beam control, blind spot monitoring and rear cross traffic alert.
A special Launch Edition model will also be available for £28,995.
Limited to just 500 units, the Launch Edition is powered by the 160PS 2.0-litre engine, and features a two-tone roof, BBS alloy wheels, black door mirrors, black rear spoiler, Alcantara interior trim and Recaro sports seats. It also comes equipped with Safety Pack as standard, with a choice of Soul Red or Machine Grey metallic offered free of charge.
The new Mazda MX-5 RF will arrive in UK dealerships next March, although 1.5-litre models will follow slightly later in May.
