When the open air beckons, the rigid hardtop retracts into the trunk, in about 13 seconds, without sacrificing space for your weekend getaway essentials.


Refined details are integral to the joy of driving. Sophisticated accents are showcased throughout the MX-5 Miata RF cabin. New for 2021, available White Nappa leather seats bring a rejuvenating touch to Grand Touring interiors.
