2020 Mazda MX-5 Miata RF: Features, Specs & Trims

2020 miata mx-5 miata rf specs features trims

Since its 1989 inception, the Mazda MX-5 Miata has been a popular automotive icon loved by drivers worldwide. The 2020 Mazda MX-5 Miata RF continues to be the sporty coupe that we love. This year, the Mazda Miata brings a more playful design with a modern chassis, a powerful engine, and some new driver-assist technologies that are enjoyable to use. More than anything, what makes the 2020 Miata more popular is its affordable price tag that beats most of those four-wheeled cars designed to offer you a thrill ride.

Top Design Highlights

Miata’s coupe-like design carries Mazda’s iconic KODO design philosophy and progressive styling. An adventurous design signifies the iconic MX-5 Miata RF roadster. The signature hardtop convertible design makes the 2020 MX-5 Miata RF look sleek and sporty. The vehicle just takes about 13 seconds to have its retractable roof slip away. The coupe-like design makes the new Miata look and feel polished, charismatic, and athletic. From the inside, the cabin is classy and comfortably seats two adults. A few available upgrade options offer buyers an option to add functional features to their Miata. Leather seats, climate control, flexible cargo, and a thoughtfully designed cabin are some of the best features of the best design highlights of 2020. The sleek 4×100 bolt pattern gives the new Mazda wheels a unique look.

Performance Highlights

The Miata’s engine is mighty enough to deliver enough power for a stirring acceleration. Both the RF models feature Mazda’s unique Skyactiv®-G 2.0-liter engine featuring 181 hp. Miata’s high-revving personality is encouraged by its included easy-to-shift manual transmission. The automatic transmission is also available for both the RF models. Even the optional automatic, the Miata offers an impressive performance with really quick shifts and sporty programming. While the soft-top model takes just 5.7 seconds to go 0-60 mph, the hardtop RF model takes just 5.8 seconds for the same feat. The mid-level Club has firmer shocks and springs, which certainly makes the Miata ride smoothly. The lightweight design and advanced aerodynamics allow the MX-5 Miata RF to maintain the 50/50 weight distribution for a precise balance and flawless performance. This precise balance and the Miata’s rigid Skyactiv®-Chassis create a perfect connection between the driving technology and the machine.

Tech Highlights

A touchscreen infotainment system allows users to access navigation, smartphone apps, and other infotainment features in the new Miata. The 2020 model has a touchscreen infotainment system with an easy-to-reach control knob and hard buttons available on the new Miata’s center console. Every Miata has standard Bluetooth connectivity with options of both phone and streaming-audio functions. The new model also has a CD player. The highest Grand Touring has standard navigation and many optional accessory options added via a Mazda SD card. The 2020 Grand Touring and Club trims also have HD radio compatibility, Apple CarPlay®, and Android Auto™.

I've been to several Mazda service centers in different states, and this is by far the best service center. They made communication easy via text or phone call, provided me a video (YouTube link via text) of the maintenance being done to my vehicle and their recommendations + the costs. Matt the representative at the front desk was great, he really took care of my vehicle and kept me informed of what was going on at all times!! Highly recommended this service center.

If you aren’t buying your vehicle here, you are missing out. More importantly, if you are not having your Mazda serviced here, you are making a big mistake. Using the app to make your appointment is simple. The way you are greeted is outstanding (my other vehicle is a Mercedes and the way I am treated here is equal to that). I was AMAZED by the video they sent - my mechanic did a walk thru of what was done and a general overview of how my car is doing.Keep up the great work Team Gillman Mazda!! I ...
