The 2021 Mazda MX-5 Miata soft-top comes in Sport, Club and Grand Touring trim levels. The RF (retractable fastback) is available as a Club or Grand Touring model. Expect to pay an extra $2,755 or so for an RF. Every MX-5 comes with a 6-speed manual transmission as standard, offering a 6-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters as an option. The automatic will cost between $525 and $600 — depending on the model.
($26,830) has 16-in alloy wheels, sport-tuned exhaust, manual soft top with a glass rear window and defroster, power windows/mirrors/locks, keyless entry/ignition, cruise control, leather-wrapped steering wheel/shift knob/parking brake boot, trip computer, Mazda Connect infotainment system with a 7-in color touchscreen, console-mounted multi-function controller, AM/FM/HD radio, USB port, Bluetooth,
/Android Auto smartphone integration, and a 6-speaker audio system. Standard safety equipment includes the i-Activsense package bringing blind spot monitoring with
rear cross-traffic alert
with automatic emergency braking, and lane departure warning.
trim ($30,290) with the manual transmission adds Bilstein shock absorbers, limited-slip differential, front strut tower brace and an induction sound enhancer. Opting for the automatic transmission deletes that equipment. Other standard features (regardless of transmission) include 17-in dark gunmetal alloy wheels, front air dam, rear-lip spoiler, heated seats, upgraded upholstery with silver stitching, and a Bose 9-speaker audio system.
Manual-transmission Club models are eligible for a Brembo/BBS Recaro package bringing Brembo front brakes with red calipers, 17-in dark gunmetal BBS wheels, aero kit, and heated Recaro sport seats. With the RF, this package also includes a hand-painted black roof.
trim ($31,770) with the manual transmission has the Club trim’s limited-slip differential and sport suspension. The automatic models don’t have most of the Club’s performance upgrades. This trim also comes with automatic on/off adaptive headlights with automatic high beams, heated side mirrors (self-dimming on the driver’s side), rain-sensing wipers, leather seating surfaces, automatic climate control, navigation, road sign recognition, and model-specific alloy wheels.
