The Miata is legendary in the racing scene for its perfect balance, stellar handling, and all-around agility. The 2021 Miata lives up to that legacy and then some. The 2021 Chevy Camaro also has nimble handling and acceleration. However, it’s much bulkier and longer than the Miata, which makes it less precise and responsive. The 2021 Camaro has more power to try and make up for the extra weight, but it’s not enough to close the gap. To be exact, the 2021 Camaro has a curb weight of 3627 lbs, clocking .075 hp/lb, whereas the 2021 Miata has a curb weight of 2341 lbs, measuring .077 hp/lb.
We appreciate a sports car that performs well on both the streets and the track. The 2021 Camaro falls short of the 2021 Miata in a few key ways in this regard. The 2021 Miata has way better fuel economy in every category. The 2021 Camaro can be difficult to see out of for certain drivers, a problem the Miata doesn’t have. The Miata soft top is also easy and quick to raise and lower. The Camaro has an automated raise/lower top, but it takes a while to complete the process and the mechanism is more prone to mechanical failure.
