Mazda’s consummate sports car adds a stylish retractable roof. The RF keeps the frisky driving attitude but looses the open sky feel of the soft top.

The third-generation Mazda MX-5 Miata roadster came with a choice of two tops: a manual soft top and a power retractable hardtop, or PRHT. Now, for 2017, joining the fourth-generation manual soft top is what's called the retractable fastback, or RF. Coincidentally, the fastback aspect is what is not retractable.

I drive a Mazda MX-5. It's not a Miata anymore, I guess, but it is. It's is the only car that does slow-car-fast. Still the best.

If you wear headphones, your mind won't be blown, but it will go, "woah, that's cool." I'm also the producer for the Winding Road YouTube Channel: http://youtube.com/windingroadmagazine Here on TheTopher, I'm known for putting a camera on my face and driving cars. Whether it's about any of my personal cars or reviews on weekly press vehicles, the goal is to give you an idea of what a certain car is like to drive or live with. Most of my videos are filmed in POV, with my clothes on, and (for like the 5th time) with in-ear binaural audio. Which, if I haven't made it clear yet, is why you should wear headphones. Because of the whole "woah" factor. It's there, trust me. Try it, it's pretty nuts. Or don't. As long as you whitelist me on your adblocker I'm okay with whatever you do or don't do with regards to headphone usage. That is all. Oh and I guess you should also probably subscribe. Why are you still reading this, you should be watching the video. With headphones! Hah, had to sneak that in there one more time. Later!
Wondering if a Miata can beat a Hellcat? Then this Head 2 Head presented by Tire Rack (http://www.tirerack.com) is for you. This is an epic battle between two of the best sports cars on sale today. Yep, you read that correct: the Miata and 86 are real sports cars in the traditional sense, focusing on the driving experience rather than delivering outright speed. MOTOR TREND Senior Features Editors Jason Cammisa and Jonny Lieberman take to the backroads to decide whether the new Targa-topped, retractable hardtop Miata is more fun than the new, updated BRZ, err… FR-S… err… GT-86, err…86. Then, they head to the racetrack where they’re joined by SCCA Hall of Fame race car driver Randy Pobst. After he sets a lap time for each car, we see whether a 707hp Dodge Charger Hellcat can beat either of the two cars—despite having more than double the horsepower of a Miata and 86 combined. You may be surprised by the outcome, but to find out which is the best sports car, you’ll have to watch this episode of Head 2 Head.

It's hard to tweak perfection, but Mazda decided to try with the 2017 MX-5 RF hard top. Ditching the canvas top will no doubt make purists cringe but the truth is that although it does dull the MX-5 slightly, it makes the affordable roadster attractive to a broader audience. The real question is: can a hard top make the nearly perfect roadster even better? Or should you spend your money on something else? 0-30 : 2.2 Seconds 0-60 : 6.5 Seconds 1/4 Mile : 14.7 Sec @ 91 MPH 60-0 Braking : 111 Feet More videos: http://goo.gl/Kj1FlI Best cars in 2016: http://goo.gl/3xAVJi Upcoming reviews: http://goo.gl/pLtP6U AOA on Facebook: http://goo.gl/a47Cu1 The Mountain Garden: http://goo.gl/icFWcd
The answer is always Miata, right? Well now, Mazda offers a choice of two MX-5's. The traditional soft top or the new and very sleek looking RF (retractable fastback). Which version is the better choice? Stay tuned and find out!
