If you're in the market for a car that's thrilling to drive, the 2019 Mazda MX-5 Miata RF was built with you in mind. The engineers at Mazda continue to push the limits of performance for a car in its class by squeezing more power out of its engine and better handling from its transmission.

The MX-5 Miata's SKYACTIV-G 2.0L engine packs 181 horsepower and pushes its redline up to 7,500 rpm from the previous engine's 7,000 rpm without increasing its weight. The result is a faster car with better acceleration.

The Miata RF also improves handling with a precise 6-speed manual transmission and redesigned rear differential that make both straightaway acceleration and curvy highways smooth and effortless. Part of that ease of handling was achieved by cutting the weight of the Mazda Miata's engine and frame.
