Mazda Steals the Show in New York with the MX-5 RF
It would not be exaggerated to call its one of the most beautiful cars of the New York Auto Show.
The New York International Auto Show was particularly important for Mazda. The Japanese automaker firstly unveiled a spectacular car, the Mazda MX-5 RF (retractable fastback), then took home one of the most prestigious titles in the industry, the World Car of the Year.
Let's start with the MX-5 RF. It is basically a Mazda MX-5 but with a retractable hardtop, and it would not be exaggerated to call its one of the most beautiful cars of the New York Auto Show. The roof comes off in a fluid motion that is sure to get you noticed on the road.
Under the hood, we find the same SKYACTIV four-cylinder 2.0-liter engine delivering 155 horsepower that powers the traditional MX-5. A six-speed manual gearbox is standard while an automatic is also available.
The 2016 Mazda MX-5 is the World Car of the Year
A few hours after the unveiling of its hardtop convertible Mazda MX-5, Mazda received another major honor, the World Car of the Year, which was awarded to… the 2016 Mazda MX-5. The roadster beat out the Mercedes-Benz GLC and the Audi A4 for the prestigious title.
