See the Performance of the Mazda MX-5 Miata RF at Budd Baer Mazda


If you’re going to drive the Mazda MX-5 Miata RF around Washington, it’s important to know about the different performance features. Mazda has done a great job of making some significant enhancements for 2019.

The Mazda MX-5 Miata RF delivers a punch on the roads because of the SKYACTIV-G 2.0-liter engine. It provides 181 horsepower and a redline that increases from 7000 RPM to 7500 RPM. If you’re going to be taking a lot of turns, there’s an available limited-slip rear differential that can make a big difference.

The engineers have worked hard to make the Mazda MX-5 Miata RF lighter by design. The aluminum powerplant frame is nearly 20% less in weight than the previous generation. Even the Pistons and connecting rods have been lightened. With a lighter vehicle and rear-wheel drive, it makes it easier to drive in perfect harmony, thanks to a nearly perfect 50/50 weight balance.
