The Mazda MX-5 RF (Retractable Fastback) is the latest iteration of the MX-5, which is targeted towards someone who wants a hard-top (ish) MX-5. The MX-5 RF features a targa-esque sliding roof which fits into the same space as the soft-top mechanism does. A matter of concern for MX-5 enthusiasts was the weight gain with the new roof mechanism, and Mazda claims that the RF is around 60kg dearer than its soft-top sibling, which is a bit of a bummer since weight is an MX-5's biggest enemy. The available powerplants remain unchanged, with either a 131PS 1.5-litre engine or a 160PS 2.0-litre Skyactiv engine.

Mazda Miata RF (9)It is a fastback! The MX-5 RF in its new avatar certainly looks the part. The fastback rear lends a low-slung stance to the MX-5
