First look at this cherry red drop-top Mazda MX-5 Miata RF

On a recent road trip to Jackson County, North Carolina I got to drive the brand new, 2017 Mazda MX-5 Miata RF.

Fun fact: the Miata has been around since 1989 and is the best selling convertible of all time!

I've never driven a drop-top convertible so I was excited for the ride.

I admit, I was nervous to drive it at first. It was so low to the ground and within the first 20-minutes of having it, a woman in a parking lot nearly backed into me!

But, as I continued the ride, I became more comfortable because of all of the standard i-ACTIVSENSE safety features:
- Rear Cross Traffic Alert
- Blind Spot Monitoring
- Lane Departure Warning System
- High Beam Control
- Adaptive Front Lighting System
- Rain-sensing wipers

This is the first model of the Miata that Mazda has produce with a retractable fastback (RF). Here's the differences vs soft Top:
- Power folding hardtop that can open or close in just 13 seconds
- Roof open/close power switch
- 4.6 inch full-color TFT display
- The MX-5 RF Launch Edition: A 1,000-unit trim level exclusively for the U.S.

The was super fun to drive and this model came with sports mode - meaning, a quicker take off when you put your foot on the gas. Which by the time I had to leave the mountains, I was much more comfortable driving down the winding roads.

Check out my video review:

Vehicle was given by Mazda for a conversation written by me. The opinions and text are all mine.

  2. Ordinary jumper links are of no utilization without another vehicle and some assistance. In any case, the advantage of having a hop starter is that it can enable you to kick off your vehicle yourself. Beside this, it functions as a battery pack and spotlight. Along these lines, the extra accommodation is extraordinary for you in the event that you are a vehicle devotee. mustang service
