Mazda MX-5 RF upgraded with handling tech called Kinematic Posture Control

By CARSIFU | 18 April 2022

PETALING JAYA: The Mazda MX-5 has been updated for 2022.

The MX-5 RF hardtop is priced from RM265,964, which is inclusive of the 50% Sales Tax Reduction (SST) on fully imported models and is valid until June 30.

Mazda said the MX-5 RF has been upgraded with new technology to deepen the sense of connection between the driver and car.

That new tech is called Kinematic Posture Control (KPC), found on both automatic and manual variants, and is a unique technology only available for the MX-5.

For ride comfort and stability, the MX-5’s rear suspension is designed to generate an “anti-lift” force that pulls the vehicle body down when the brakes are applied.

KPC takes full advantage of the characteristics of this suspension and applies a slight brake to the inner rear wheel when cornering under conditions with high G-force, thereby suppressing roll and pulling the vehicle down to stabilize posture.

All other specification on the MX-5 RF remains unchanged, which includes Wireless Apple CarPlay and a host of i-Activsense safety features such Adaptive LED Headlights (ALH), Blind Spot Monitoring (BSM), Rear Cross-Traffic Alert (RCTA), Smart City Brake Support (SCBS), Driver Attention Alert (DAA) and Lane Departure Warning System (LDWS).

The MX-5 RF comes standard with a Skyactiv-G 2.0L engine that delivers 181hp and a top speed of 220kph. The engine is paired with
a six-speed manual transmission or a six-speed automatic transmission with steering wheel paddle shifters.

Both manufacturer warranty and free maintenance have a coverage of period of five years and a mileage limit of 100,000km, whichever comes first with.
