In this video, Amelia reviews the latest 2019 Mazda MX-5 RF GT. It’s our second take this year on the new MX-5 as we reviewed the previous gen base trim a few months back.

The latest MX5 has nice looks, a lightweight body, and exhilarating driving dynamics, all at the price of minimal storage and only 2 seats.

The GT adds some cool features as standard and the new version also includes some tweaks which make this a far more upmarket car than the lower trim level.

Still, without a turbo, the latest version of the SkyActiv engine adds a bit more power at 135 kW and 205 Nm of torque. This sporty 2 seater weighs 1080 kg and is paired with a 6-speed SkyActiv manual and in this guise it consumer 6.9 l per 100 km, while a 6-speed automatic MX-5 increases consumption to 7.2 liters per 100 km.
