"The Mazda MX-5 RF delivers all the thrills of the regular MX-5, but with a bit more comfort. It’s a compelling blend of fun, affordability and style and is one of the best sporty cars at this price. It’s no surprise that the MX-5 was named Most Loved Car in the 2019 Auto Trader New Car Awards."

Running costs for a Mazda MX-5 RF
The MX-5 RF is good value when you consider that most other sporty roadsters cost thousands more to buy, and aren’t as much fun to drive. It’s competitively priced next to other small drop-tops such as the Mini Convertible, too. Running costs are reasonably low, thanks to the MX-5’s low weight and efficient petrol engines. In fact, its official fuel consumption and CO2 emissions figures are no higher than for the average family car. Residual values will be strong, while servicing costs aren’t too high and Mazda offers fixed-price servicing packages that allow you budget for maintenance costs. Insurance costs may be a bit pricey, depending on your circumstances, but compared with a similarly priced hatchback or SUV the MX-5 actually makes sound financial sense.
