2014 Mazda MX-5 Miata vs. 2014 Chevrolet Camaro Review

Comparison Review


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

Convenience
With the Chevrolet Camaro you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Mazda MX-5 Miata, due to its tank size and 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). Based on MSRP, the Mazda MX-5 Miata is clearly a better financial choice over the Chevrolet Camaro. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Mazda MX-5 Miata carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Chevrolet Camaro.

Dimensions
Since the Mazda MX-5 Miata is much slimmer than the Chevrolet Camaro, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Mazda MX-5 Miata, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Chevrolet Camaro.

Drivetrain
The Mazda MX-5 Miata has much less torque than the Chevrolet Camaro, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Mazda MX-5 Miata has a significantly smaller turning radius than the Chevrolet Camaro, allowing much better maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Mazda MX-5 Miata is significantly less powerful than the Chevrolet Camaro. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
The Mazda MX-5 Miata has less seating than the Chevrolet Camaro, making the Chevrolet Camaro the better choice if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Mazda MX-5 Miata has significantly less cargo room than the Chevrolet Camaro, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

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