New Mazda MX-5 RF Starts From £22,195

Mazda MX-5 RF

It seems like a long time ago since I wrote about the Mazda MX-5 RF but today the Japanese brand released the prices for the RF models hitting the UK. The MX-5 RF looks rather special but it won’t be too much then the regular MX-5 with prices starting from £22,195.

Trims and Engines

Only 500 will be coming to the UK but customers will still get a choice of trim and engine. You’ll have the choice of either a 1.5 or 2.0 litre SKYACTIV-G petrol engine which offer 129bhp and 158bhp respectively. A minimum of £23,095 will be needed to get the 2.0 litre unit which comes in the SE-L Nav trim and the 1.5 litre in the same trim will cost £22,195.

However, if you fancy going all out you can part with a sizeable £28,995 for the Launch Edition. This offers a twin-tone roof, BBS alloy wheels, black door mirrors and a black spoiler. It comes in either Soul Red or Machine Grey metallic paint which is complimented by alcantara trim in the cabin with Recaro seats.

​​Completing the trim levels is the mid-level Sport Nav which costs £24,795 when mated with the 1.5 litre and £25,695 when the 2.0 litre is selected. There is also a Sport Nav Auto option which is mated with the 2.0 litre unit only and costs £27,095. The new model is available to pre-order now and will be delivered to the UK in March 2017.

Jeremy Thomson, Managing Director of Mazda Motors UK said, “We’re very excited about the arrival of the all-new Mazda MX-5 RF. It will add a unique and stylish model to our range, one that stands distinct from the MX-5 Convertible, yet retains all the award-winning driver appeal our sports car is famed for.”
