2018 Mazda MX-5 Miata and RF Trim Level Comparison
The Mazda MX-5 Miata is an impressive roadster, and it’s made even more impressive by its wide array of features, options, and trim levels. What trim level is right for you? We are going to help you answer that with our 2018 Mazda MX-5 Miata and RF trim level comparison.
What’s included with the Mazda MX-5 Miata Sport?
The Sport trim sets the tone for the rest of the Mazda MX-5 Miata lineup. Its standard 2.0-liter engine pumps out 155 horsepower and 148 pound-feet of torque, and you will find this engine on every trim level from here on out. Interestingly enough, all trims also offer either manual or an automatic transmission.
When it comes to features, the Sport offers a lot for a base model. For starters, you get LED headlights, a MAZDA CONNECT™ infotainment screen, Bluetooth connectivity, and more. This trim is available for the soft top Mazda MX-5 Miata but it is not available for the hardtop convertible Mazda MX-5 Miata RF version.
What does the Mazda MX-5 Miata Club trim add?
The Club trim sits just above the Sport trim and it is available on both the soft top and the hardtop Mazda MX-5 Miata. It adds a lot of features, even on the outside. For the exterior, the 16-inch rims of the Sport trim are replaced by 17-inch rims done in a Dark Gunmetal color. To match, you also get a black rear lip spoiler and front air dam. The LED headlights are even complemented by LED daytime running lights.
