While traditionalists might want their MX-5's with a cloth roof, quite a few owners of early models bought an optional removable hard top for use on the car in the winter months, and to clog up their garages during the summer as it was an ungainly lump to store. Thankfully Mazda followed the trend set by the Mercedes SLK and fitted a folding hard top roof, charged a bit more and called the model the RF, standing for "Retractable Fastback". It shares all of its trim levels with the standard car, and other than the large pillars behind the door, everything else is the same as the convertible model, so you get the best of both worlds - full protection from the elements in the winter and roof down motoring in the summer - perfect for those who want to use the car year round in the UK. Strangely it's only in the RF that Mazda offers the optional automatic gearbox too.
