If you’ve been shopping for just the right sporty coupe that offers abundant safety, outstanding performance, and high-level features, it’s hard to go wrong with the 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata, now available at Cox Mazda near Palmetto and Memphis. To demonstrate the superiority of the Mazda, we’ve matched it up against one of its rivals, the 2016 Subaru BRZ. We think it’s pretty easy to see why the 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata is the leading choice.

Safety

The 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata provides numerous safety features that aren’t available on the BRZ at any level:

  • 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata The 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata offers options like Lane Departure Warning, Blind Spot Warning, and radar-enhanced Cross-Path Warning to help drivers avoid collisions with objects that may be hard to see. Select trims are also equipped with the E911 Emergency Assistance System which can call for help in the event of an accident.
  • 2016 Subaru BRZ The BRZ doesn’t offer Lane Departure Warning, Blind Spot Warning, or a Cross-Path Warning system, leaving drivers at risk of accident from objects in their blind spots. The Subaru BRZ also lacks Emergency Assistance, so you may be left unable to call for help in the event of an accident.

 

Performance

When it comes to both power and handling, the 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata easily outclasses the Subaru:

  • 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata In Motor Trend testing, the 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata was able to accelerate from 0-60 in only 5.8 seconds when tested with the manual transmission. Stopping is a priority at those speeds, and the 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata was able to come to a complete stop from 70 MPH in just 158 feet thanks to the inclusion of Mazda’s signature performance braking system.
  • 2016 Subaru BRZ In the same Motor Trend testing, the Subaru requires 6.4 seconds to go from 0-60—nearly 10% longer than the 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata—when using the manual transmission. Braking took longer as well, with the BRZ needing 165 feet to come to a stop from 70 MPH— seven feet more than the 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata, which is nearly half the length of the car.

Features

The 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata offers a number of convenient amenities not available on the Subaru BRZ, including:

  • 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata A locking center console helps to keep small valuables secure when you have to leave your 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata unsupervised.
