2019 Mazda MX-5 Miata vs 2019 Ford Mustang

2019 Mazda MX-5 Miata vs 2019 Ford Mustang Convertible

Mazda’s convertible, with both its soft top and RF hardtop builds, is back with a 2019 model. Additionally, the 2019 Mazda MX-5 Miata brings much more of a redesign when compared to the refreshed 2018 Mazda MX-5 Miata models. A reworked powertrain greatly improves efficiency, power output, handling, and much more to increase the thrills and ease of your driving experience.

With a much further refined design, and with more information now released regarding the 2019 Mazda MX-5 Miata models, let’s take a look to see how Mazda’s iconic convertible compares to others on the market. For that, we’ve chosen the convertible variant of the new 2019 Ford Mustang. It’s the 2019 Mazda MX-5 Miata vs the 2019 Ford Mustang convertible!

2019 Mazda MX-5 Miata Scranton, PA

Although pricing is one of the few details not yet released, only to be shown upon its official release, the standard 2019 Mazda MX-5 Miata will likely come far under the starting price of the 2019 Mustang convertible. For evidence, we can look at the 2018 Mazda MX-5 Miata models. The starting MSRP of the 2018 Mazda MX-5 Miata is $25,295. Unless there are drastic changes, the 2019 Mazda MX-5 Miata will have a similar starting price.

With that low price, you get the convertible experience for less. Yes, the 2019 Ford Mustang is more powerful, but not always to its benefit. This hearty engine cripples the Mustang’s fuel economy as well as adding to its already burdensome weight that negatively affects its handling and driving transitions. Meanwhile, the 2019 Mazda MX-5 Miata has a very lightweight build with a light but powerful engine and a stellar fuel economy, making the handling and responsiveness of its model incredibly smooth.

Beyond those appealing advantages, take a look at the following features available with the 2019 Mazda MX-5 Miata:

  • BOSE® Premium Audio System
  • SKYACTIV®-MT 6-Speed Manual Transmission
  • Heated Seats
  • Leather-Trimmed Seats
  • Standard Rearview Camera System
  • Dual-Mass Flywheel for Smoother Response Times
  • Automatic Climate Control
  • i-ACTIVSENSE® Safety
  • Rain-Sensing Windshield Wipers
  • Traffic Sign Recognition
  • And More!

Expected to release by the end of August 2018, or at the beginning of September 2018, the 2019 Mazda MX-5 Miata will be available to the public very soon.
