My husband picked me up in NYC – just picture this – SOHO, hip neighborhood and limos with drivers waiting. When I came out of the building and saw the Mazda waiting for me, I had to take a picture, because just by looking at it, I felt empowered, bolder, sexier.
That made me think, what makes a car sexy?
Was it the bolder lines and paint which reflects the light, giving it an endless color/shaping moving unique perspective?
The painting technology, a premium color with a high-quality finish that looks as if it were hand-painted. The MX-5 RF we drove had one of my favorite colors: the Machine Grey.
Or was it the power roof which opens and closes with the press of a button while moving at speeds of up to 10km/h?
Even with the folding system, the MX-5 RF offers the same trunk space as the soft top model. The RF retractable hardtop, gives you the best of both coupe and ragtop worlds. It gives me the functionality and ability of owning just one, because YES! I can go grocery shopping and even more important, I can go shoe shopping with this baby!
Also the noise with the top down was significantly reduced by the wind screen. But the ability to turn the sound up and enjoy it to the max with the headrest BOSE speakers … BOOOM! So much fun to drive!
Maybe it was that it offered more interior space on the driver side?
My husband is 6’2″ and last year he had a hard time fitting in the 2016 Mazda MX 5, which didn’t happen this time.
How about the beautiful interior? Which offers :
- 4.6-inch full color TFT display instrument cluster
- Roof open/close power switch
- Leather interior
- Multi-function Commander control
- Heated seats with three settings
- Standard Bluetooth hands-free phone and audio
I know the Mazda MX 5 RF just called my name every time I looked at it! I enjoyed our time together so much, it was hard every time I had to leave!
But for me, what just completed the whole package was that I had an amazing, reliable, gorgeous inside and out vehicle and was still able to afford it. I felt that every time my hand touched it – that was sexy at its best!

I thought you would also want to know that you don’t need to sacrifice as far as fuel efficiency. This picture was taken after a 2 hour highway drive: Notice the 37.4 MPG?
For fuel efficiency, we were actually able to get better gas mileage than the posted EPA estimate on their Monroney Sticker, which is:
35 EPA EST MPG Highway
It has great pick up – nothing is sexier than feeling the power and the engine rumble when you need it!
The Mazda is the sexiest car I’ve driven so far, for all the reasons above but mostly, because it is a vehicle I could look in the mirror and know that I would be able walk to the dealer today, if I wished, and purchase it.
That’s the main issue when we dream about sexy cars, they’re often unattainable/unaffordable. They are made by brands with a price tag that allows them to live only in the dreams of most of us!
The Mazda MX 5 RF fixed that!
I can’t wait to hear what you think, as usual give us a Trendy Shout!
