2018 MX-5 & MX-5 RF
Those searching for a fun roadster sports car will appreciate the style and thrills of the 2018 MX-5 and the MX-5 RF. Both exciting vehicles are guaranteed to deliver a fun drive, particularly if you fold down the top. Enjoy the latest technology, sleek styling, and MX-5 specs that will put other roadsters to shame.
If you get the chance to get behind the wheel of the Mazda MX-5 or MX-5 RF, you will feel the almost perfect 50/50 distribution of weight via the connected and smoother driving experience. Engineers made weight distribution the most important factor in the design, ensuring the best possible driving experience. Perhaps even more impressive is that Mazda managed to drop 20 percent of the MX-5’s weight from the previous model thanks to its use of ultra-high-tensile steel and aluminum.
As you take the 2018 MX-5 for a spin, you will also notice enhanced driving dynamics over previous years. Mazda fine-tuned the rear bump’s stop length and bushings to improve control on turns. There are also tweaks to the power steering to maximize this impact.
Muscular and Exhilarating Appearance
As always, the KODO design language works as well on the regular MX-5 as it does the MX-5 RF, giving off a clearly aerodynamic muscular appearance. Look for hints of its signature style, like the familiar curves and the sloping hood. The LED lights catch the eye while the round rear lamps enhance visibility and style.
No matter the Mazda MX-5 model you choose, you will get the option of an open-air driving experience to enjoy sunny days. The MX-5 soft top is the stuff of legends, but the MX-5 RF provides an excellent alternative with a retractable hardtop. This hardtop is able to open or close in just 13 seconds thanks to its three sections; that is the quickest operating time of any roof of this type. Easily activate the hardtop as long as you are driving at 10 km/h or slower.
Quality Interior to Focus on the Drive
Reading MX-5 reviews will show you that this auto’s interior is as comfortable as ever. The 2018 does feature improvements, such as strategically incorporated enhanced sound insulation to reduce vehicle vibration and deliver that quieter ride you strive for. The 2018 MX-5 interior follows the KODO design language to help you as the driver feel connected to this vehicle.
Always Safe with i-ACTIVSENSE
Just like you expect from the Mazda MX-5, the 2018 version of this popular roadster sports car comes loaded with standard and available i-ACTIVSENSE features to keep you safe at all times. More features are standard than before, helping to prevent a collision or minimize the severity of one you cannot avoid. High Beam Control enhances your vision at night by automatically switching to low beams when there is oncoming traffic or a vehicle in front; this ensures you can get the best visibility without distracting other drivers. The Adaptive Front-lighting System pivots your headlights as you turn to improve visibility around curves and corners.
The Advanced Blind Spot Monitoring System detects objects in your right or left blind spots and, if you indicate a lane change with an object present, you will hear a warning chime and see a light blink in the side mirror. Rear Cross Traffic Alert works when you are in reverse, detecting vehicles approaching you from either side and alerting you audibly and with a visual warning in each side mirror. Lane Departure Warning tracks lane markings and lets you know if you are at risk of drifting out of your lane.
Yours to Customize
Mazda wants to make sure that every driver gets the exact MX-5 specs they want, which is why the automaker offers plenty of customization options for the auto. Opt for the new Dark Cherry folding roof to truly stand out from the crowd or keep your customizations inside the cabin with Nappa leather-trimmed seats in Chroma Brown. Those interested in the MX-5 RF should consider the new Soul Red Metallic exterior paint to truly enhance this Mazda’s shape.
Don’t Forget to Consider the 50th Anniversary Edition
In addition to the favorite versions of the auto you find in MX-5 reviews, there is a 2018 Mazda MX-5 50th Anniversary Edition to celebrate Mazda’s 50th year in Canada. This Anniversary Edition builds on the GS version with its 6-speed manual transmission. You get a custom Bose sound system featuring AudioPilot 2 noise compensation technology, including a subwoofer and speakers mounted in the front headrests. This unique 2018 MX-5 also sits on 17-inch BBS forged-alloy wheels featuring a dark finish.
