Mazda MX-5 RF bags Red Dot Best of the Best

The Mazda MX-5 RF, which will its official domestic at the end of the month in Malaysia, was recently awarded the “Red Dot: Best of the Best” prize at the 2017 Red Dot product design awards. The RF repeats the accolade following the success of the fourth-gen MX-5, which captured the same award in 2015.

The “Red Dot: Best of the Best” is the highest honor available from the internationally acclaimed annual competition and is bestowed only for truly outstanding and ground-breaking designs. Mazda MX-5 RF, the fastback rendition of KODO, features a one-of-a-kind power retractable hardtop that not only looks impressive, but is lightweight and efficient too, opening or closing in a remarkable display of origami in only 13 seconds. Adding coupé practicality to the MX-5’s matchless open top driving fun, the RF deepens the overall experience while remaining true to tradition of Jinba Ittai, or “rider and horse as one body”, that has made the MX-5 a legend, and the best-selling roadster in history.
