To most drivers, a sports car is the pinnacle of youth and excitement, able to deliver plenty of adrenaline and good times through any situation. Nowadays, sports cars are still able to give you all the punch you need, but they can also feature some of the most high-quality technology and safety features on the market, making them worthy daily drivers as well. In this comparison, we've got two of the most endearing sports cars on the road on display; the 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata and the 2017 Nissan 370Z.
Both the Miata and 370Z are renowned for their commitment to fun, top-of-the-line styling and practicality for all types of drivers. But how well do they stack up against each other? Our team here at Capistrano Mazda wants to help you, the driver, make a better decision about which vehicle is best for your current situation, and we've included some features of both the Miata and 370Z to compare. So take a look and see what each of these crowd-favorite sports cars bring to the table!
At first, comparing the 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata in Orange County CA and 2017 Nissan 370Z seems a little unfair, given the stronger engine and power output present on the 370Z. However, the 2016 Miata is over 1,000 pounds lighter than the 370Z, giving its engine all the room in the world to deliver an exhilarating ride, while still keeping you safe and controlled inside. For a much more inexpensive entry-level price, the 2016 Miata also provides a far superior amount of fuel economy, able to get you anywhere you need to go without much worry about pulling over for gas. Thanks to an extensive airbag system that covers the entire vehicle interior, Electronic Stability Control, and available seatbelt pretentioners, the 2016 Miata also delivers a substantial amount of safety when you are behind the wheel.
