Since its debut at the Chicago Auto Show in 1989, the Mazda MX-5 has become the world's most popular roadster. The fourth generation MX-5 debuted just over a year ago and now the iconic sports car boasts another innovation - a folding hard-top roof.

The new Mazda MX-5 RF arrives this spring and Sandicliffe have a special weekend of events to allow you to see this stunning new model in the flesh for the first time. While previous models have featured either a manual soft or hard top, the new RF comes with a fully electric roof which retracts in just 13 seconds.

Alan Worboys, Mazda Brand Manager at Sandicliffe, says: "Just when you thought the world's best-selling two-seater sports car couldn't get any better, Mazda have come along and introduced this superb new retractable Fastback (RF) model.

"For three days in February we'll be giving you the chance to take an accompanied test drive in this new MX-5 and to experience this brilliant new car for yourself."

The exclusive MX-5 RF Test Drive event will take place across the weekend of 17-19 February 2017:

  • Friday 17 February - Sandicliffe Mazda Leicester, 12pm - 7pm
  • Saturday 18 February - Sandicliffe Mazda Loughborough, 11am - 6pm
  • Sunday 19 February - Sandicliffe Mazda Trent Bridge, 11am - 6pm


If you don't want to take a test drive, you can still experience the beauty of the new Mazda MX-5 RF through Oculus Rift virtual reality technology - or you can simply admire the car in the flesh.

Combining KODO: Soul of Motion design with the very latest technology and a choice of great engines, the MX-5 RF offers a wide range of specifications and options. All models come with integrated navigation, Bluetooth and a DAB radio but you can also choose from Limited Slip Differential, a Bose sound system, and Piano Black door mirrors.

Reviews of the new model have also been excellent. What Car? awarded the new MX-5 RF four stars, praising the car's 'quick, accurate steering and grin-inducing cornering composure'.

Mr Worboys from Sandicliffe adds: "I'm really looking forward to introducing this new model to our customers over the weekend of 17-19 February. Test drives will be available on a first-come first-served basis and so I'd encourage you to book yours now if you want to get behind the wheel of this iconic roadster."
