We Love Fast Cars!
**I was provided a 2017 Mazda Miata MX-5 RF to facilitate this review. All opinions are my own.**
Did you guys see “Red Hot”? She was delivered to me a week ago for a test drive. This was my first time driving a Mazda Miata and although I have driven several Mazda’s I was not prepared for what I was in store for with the 2017 Mazda Miata MX-5 RF. I’ve always been a fan a beautiful red car and “Red Hot” was all of that and a bag of Super Size Fries..LOL!
The Mazda Miata MX-5 RF is definitely the perfect little car for long ride in the mountains, trip to the beach and date night. The moment that the car was delivered I instantly knew that I was in for a fun week. I surprised my youngest with a ride as soon as he came home with the top down of course. We headed out for a quick Mommy & Son Day Date. It’s no secret that this little rasta man loves ice cream so of course we had to hit these Fayetteville streets in search of our dose of delicious ice cream!
My second day date was with my 14-year-old BJ. As you can see in the above picture he is just too cool riding in “BIG RED” and totally in his own zone. Needless to say that we were cruising all over Atlanta together and lets just say that he was totally all in when we took our one on one rides.
“Big Red” comes completely loaded with:
- SKYACTIV-G 2.0L DOHC 4-CYL ENGINE
- 6-SPEED SPORT AT
- 155 HORSEPOWER; 148 LB-FT TORQUE
- REAR-WHEEL DRIVE
- 17-INCH ALLOY WHEELS
- AUTO ON/OFF LED HEADLIGHTS
- HEATED SIDE MIRRORS
- LEATHER-WRAPPED STEERING WHEEL W/AUDIO/CRUISE/BLUETOOTH CONTROLS
- ADVANCED KEYLESS ENTRY SYSTEM
- BOSE AM/FM/CD 9-SPEAKER AUDIO
- SIRIUSXM SATELLITE RADIO
- DYNAMIC STABILITY CONTROL (DSC)
These are just a few amazing qualities of the 2017 Mazda Miata. I will admit that I initially took it for a couples vehicle or someone without kids but after driving it I have come to the conclusion that it would be a great vehicle for a married couple, a mom with kids or a single person. It was great enjoying my kids individually and allowing us to enjoy some much-needed one on one time.
My last Day Date was with my 21-year-old who during the visit was home right before he headed to Kentucky for school.
Honestly I had the most fun with my oldest son. We were cruising all around Atlanta hitting up our hot spots, shopping and dining at some of our favorite restaurants. We both agreed that “Red Hot” could be our weekend toy. In fact I’m definitely thinking about purchasing one for my fun weekend getaway trips. If you’re ever in the market for beautiful sports car that fast be sure to head to your nearest Mazda dealer and test drive “Red Hot”!
