Mazda MX-5 RF Reclaims the Red Dot Best of the Best Award in Class

Who can say no to the Mazda MX-5? Ever since the launch of this latest generation it has won accolade after accolade, with critics praising it as a sort of return to form for the roadster and the sports car (although they did say the same thing about the 86/BRZ twins). It's a great little car, as you can read in Hans' review here, but has the design stayed relevant? Red Dot certainly seems to thinks so, awarding the MX-5 RF the Best of the Best award that its soft top sibling took back in 2015.

This award would be the sixth Red Dot Design award for Mazda products using the KODO design language. The MX-5 RF is the hard-top fastback version of the MX-5, featuring a powered retractable roof that tucks away behind and leaves some spyder-like protrutions behind the occupants' heads. Mazda Malaysia has actually discreetly put the car on display in their Glenmarie showroom, and bookings are now open ahead of the actual launch.
