Second Red Dot design award for current Mazda MX-5…
The Mazda MX-5 RF has been named the winner of this year’s Red Dot: Best of the Best award.
Coming two years after the current series Mazda MX-5 picked up the same award for the convertible version, judges said the retractable fastback (RF) MX-5 brings coupe practicality along with open top driving fun.
Adding that ‘the RF features a one-of-a-kind lightweight power retractable hardtop that looks fantastic, and in a remarkable display of origami, opens and closes in just 13 seconds‘.
Ikuo Maeda, Mazda’s Global Head of Design, welcomed the recognition.
“We’ve taken the MX-5 down an exciting new road with the RF.
“Whenever I see this car, I am reminded of an unprecedented team effort, not only by our designers but also our engineers and production specialists,”
“Every single one of them deserves some of the credit for this achievement.”
