Lightweight Hardtop

It’s common for drivers to select a soft top model over a hard top model because its known for being lightweight. But in the case of the Mazda MX-5 RF, the hardtop will only be around 100 pounds heavier than the soft-top—not much of a difference for a car. So you can go ahead and opt for the more luxurious hard top without worrying about the extra weight. Mazda engineers have tested it and found that there is no massive effect to harm its performance.

Accessible Trunk Space

We know that trunk space may not be an important factor when buying a convertible, but its certainly nice to have the option for extra space for your adventures. Both the hardtop and soft-top models are well-designed and offer enough space for up to two carry-on suit cases in the trunk of 4.6 cubic feet of space.

Open the Top on the Go

The retractable top in the Mazda MX-5 RF only takes 12 seconds to come down. This means you don’t have to be in park waiting for the top to come down. You can go at slow parking lot speeds and push the button for it to automatically retract. Pulling out of a parking space means you can double task by taking the top down.
