So what does the RF stand for in the Mazda MX-5 Miata? Really Fast? Well, it can be, but it actually means “Retractable Fastback”. Basically, the Mazda MX-5 Miata has 2 different kinds of roofs; soft top, and hardtop. The Mazda MX-5 Miata RF is the hardtop version of the Mazda MX-5 Miata.

Should I get the hardtop or soft top of the Mazda MX-5 Miata?

There isn’t too much of a difference when it comes to the Mazda MX-5 Miata RF and the Mazda MX-5. If you were looking for trim and packaging options, you might have more choices with the Mazda MX-5 Miata, but if you like the sleek look that the hardtop brings about, then the Mazda MX-5 Miata RF is definitely the way to go.

Pricing is one of the major differences between the hardtop and soft top. As you might imagine, the hardtop costs a bit more. For the 2018 Mazda MX-5 Miata and Mazda MX-5 Miata RF, you’ll see differences between trim levels, color options, and fuel economy when you compare the base trims to each other. Of course, the 2019 Mazda MX-5 Miata and 2019 Mazda MX-5 Miata RF will be released soon, so there will be some great new specs and features to look forward to!
