2017 Mazda MX-5 Miata RF Jackson Heights
If you’re looking for something fast and sleek, then stop by Island Mazda near Jackson Heights, NJ to check out the luxury 2017 Mazda MX-5 Miata RF. Mazda’s dedicated team of engineers worked tirelessly to produce a fastback roof that was both beautiful and functional. It had to move quickly and elegantly while complementing the silhouette of this sleek and mysterious roadster.
After countless rounds of trial and error, Mazda’s team developed a truly innovative, power-folding fastback roof that operates seamlessly in about 13 seconds. How do you fit a rigid hardtop into a space just big enough for folding cloth-top? After considering several methods, some as dramatic as splitting the roof into seven parts, Mazda’s fearless engineers came up with a function yet beautiful solution. They used the previous generation hardtop structure but redesigned each linkage to make it as rigid as possible. The result is a mechanism that both quiet and efficient.
The aluminum power plant frame has undergone a weight loss of nearly 20 percent from the previous-generation MX-5. That means a more connected, responsive driving experience – every time you get behind the wheel. There’s more than one road to driving thrills. The MX-5 RF takes the lightweight, rear-wheel-drive route. And when a driver is behind the wheel, near-perfect 50/50 weight balance. The RF is also highly rigid yet lightweight. This is all thanks to its SKYACTIV®-Chassis that plays a key role in the MX-5 RF’s nimbleness and stability. Together, the RF’s balance and rigid chassis create an incredibly responsive drive and an undeniable connection between man and machine.
One major perk about the MX-5 RF is its six-speed manual transmission. It’s small and light, yet retains the short-throw precision drivers love. So whether you’re cruising down a curvy road or dashing down a straightaway, the MX-5 RF’s transmission will ensure an effortless and enjoyable drive.
