2015 Chevrolet Camaro vs. 2015 Mazda MX-5 Miata Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Chevrolet Camaro and the Mazda MX-5 Miata in the front seats.

Convenience
With the Chevrolet Camaro you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Mazda MX-5 Miata, due to its larger tank size and better fuel economy.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The Chevrolet Camaro will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Mazda MX-5 Miata, which has a much lower MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Chevrolet Camaro is much higher than that for the Mazda MX-5 Miata.

Dimensions
Since the Chevrolet Camaro is much wider than the Mazda MX-5 Miata, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Chevrolet Camaro, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Mazda MX-5 Miata.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Chevrolet Camaro does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Mazda MX-5 Miata.

Handling
The Chevrolet Camaro has a significantly larger turning radius than the Mazda MX-5 Miata, making it much more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Chevrolet Camaro has a much more powerful engine than the Mazda MX-5 Miata. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
The Chevrolet Camaro offers greater seating capacity than the Mazda MX-5 Miata, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Chevrolet Camaro will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Mazda MX-5 Miata.

Warranty
The Chevrolet Camaro comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Mazda MX-5 Miata.
