At Chicago, Mazda has announced central 2018 pricing for a MX-5 Miata, both soft-top and RF. The trick-roofed RF version, or Retractable Fastback, has a coupe-like energy hardtop that opens adult into a targa. It’s usually healthy that there are MX-5 models on arrangement during a Chicago Auto Show, as 29 years progressing a strange Miata was denounced there. All ND era cars sole in a U.S. have a 155-horsepower Skyactiv-G engine with a choice of six-speed primer or six-speed automatic.
While a canvas-topped 2018 MX-5 starts from $25,295 as a primer Sport, a RF bypasses a Sport spec and starts directly from a Club, that for a RF means a $31,910 starting price, or $355 some-more than for 2017; a soft-top 2018 Club costs $29,555 in comparison, or a measly $120 hike. The primer Club has a singular trip differential, a front strut prop and Bilstein suspension.
Similarly to a soft-top car, a RF also gets a Brembo/BBS brake/wheel/appearance package that hikes a cost to $35,680 — and that is usually accessible with primer transmission. That package costs $32,925 for a soft-top, that has also a $700 Recaro competition seating choice for a aforementioned Brembo/BBS package, though that is taken for a RF. Grand Touring comes with involuntary meridian control, exhilarated leather seats and adaptive lighting, during a cost of $30,195 for a soothing tip and $32,750 for a RF. Add new-for-2018 Nappa leather for a Grand Touring for $300.
At launch in a 2017 indication year, a RF Grand Touring was labelled $3,000 dearer than a allied soft-top version, though that disproportion has now shrunk by $500.
