  1. Hi Thomas, Mazda launched Mx-5 Z-Sport soft top and 2018 RF. Apparently they both have some subtle interior changes, new suspension and steering set-up plus possibly more refinements including more noise dampening for both(possibly). I tried getting the information from other reviews but nobody is as thorough as you:) I'd love to see these 2 cars reviewed and see what are your impressions. All the best

  2. He is like the Bob Ross of car reviews. And yes, that is a big compliment. So soothing yet informative and interesting. Thank you for your contribution to the world!

  3. Hi Thomas! Do you mean that the ND version is better for driving with the roof open? I just thought this type of roof was better for the wind but now I have doubts. It is obvious that this car is purchased to go uncapped most of the time, for that reason the one that is less noisy will win. What do you think about it? Greetings from Spain.

  4. Good review, I hope you enjoyed your stay in my land.

    I drived by this road with all my cars starting with my first one, a 3rd hand Corsa A. I'm eager to drive it again when I have my MX-5 in a few weeks.

  5. Don't fool yourself just because it is new and a Miata

    The Honda Delsol is superior to the Mazda MX5 even after 25 years… here is some reasons why

    Hard plastic sun visors that don't swivel to block sun from the sides
    Poor "A" pillar vision with non functional front triangular windows that are too small to actually provide vision.
    No glove box
    Huge transmission bell housing intruding into floor space and comfort
    Massive "C" pillar blind spots
    Tiny rear vision, obscured by wind deflector and distorted by plastic wind deflector
    Poor sound with no rear speaker locations but right at your ear head rest speakers that is very difficult to upgrade
    Poor reclining ability with no rear seat space and flat etc etc

    Honda B16 Engine power and torque figures are still better than Mazda's so called SkyActive engine

    B16 = 172 PS (127 kW; 170 hp) 157 N·m (116 lb·ft)

    SkyActive G L4 = 131 PS (96 kW; 129 bhp) 150 N·m (111 ft·lbf)

    Not to mention the Transtop was more refined with no exposed folding mechanisms inside
    Delsol had infinitely positioning wind deflector by way of powered rear window with zero rear view distortion..etc etc

    The Delsol is really the original and better….

  6. The Honda Delsol was way ahead of Mazda… 25 years ahead and still better

    After 25 years later has Mazda warmed up to a Targa top
    Delsol is still superior The Honda Delsol was way ahead of Mazda… 25 years ahead and still better

    After 25 years later has Mazda warmed up to a Targa top
    Delsol is still superior
    Mazda rear vision is poor, with added hindrance of static plastic wind deflector
    No powered wind control which the Delsol has with infinite positioning
    Mazda targa hoop is non functional, not weight bearing and therefore not safer.
    With fake rear windows to hide the true shape and smiliarities with the Delsol
    Exposed roof folding mechanics exposed inside unlike the polished Delsol with no sight and dangers of folding mechanisms
    Inferior rear storage space to the Delsol
    Inferior interior storage space to the Delsol

  7. Dear Thomas, thank you for such a lovely and elaborate review. it almost seemed like a test drive!

    do you think this car would comply with the heavy downpours in rainy season? or would the retractable roof be a problem for driving in extreme wet weather? and about bumps, is the ground clearance enough?

  8. Hi Thomas, great review, thanks.
    I didn't understand clearly the part where you explain the free space between your head and the top.
    How tall are you?
    Thanks in advance.

  9. Great video!! Without considering different price points, what car would you consider between this RF and the TT 2.0 TFSI 230 bhp? I really like the RF, but I'm not too sure about practicality and boot space.

  10. Very well done. Thank you for doing such a detailed job with your descriptions. It looks like a car that could be a lot of fun for those of us who love to drive but are not trained to control all the new big horsepower cars of today. Thanks.

  11. I would love to able to get an MX-5 as a second or fun car…but I'm just about 1.98 meters (6'5"") tall and just seeing those shots in the driver's seat makes me feel claustrophobic. 🙁

  12. Very nice review. I watched it 200 times! Last week I ordered a sport 2.0 RF in soul red. Same as in the video. I didn't get to try the recaro seats in the model I test drove (it had normal leather seats and they were pretty comfortable.) I really hope the seats aren't too stiff and restricting for a 178x64kg person.

  13. 15:55 Great place to stow your pistol for Texans, your weed for Coloradans, bear spray for Montanans, your prozac the therapist gave you for Californians, your moonpie and RC for Bammers, etc. 😀

  14. I'm 183 cm tall, small size of MX5 has me worried. I think I need to go for the 86/BRZ. Those have more roomy cabins and telescoping steering column. RF looks awesome, but it's not for tall people.

  15. Brilliant review Thomas. I wish you had spoken about practicality for couples… You did mention the trunk is really small but If I were to travel with my wife would it be too difficult? How bad is it as your only car? I think this is the main question that keeps people from buying a convertible. The feeling of driving a convertible through small roads with your partner by your side is unsurpassed… I've had a 2009 Porsche and it was incredible, but very soon I had to buy a second car… In the end, I sold the Porsche and kept the Mazda 3… Broke my heart to do that…
