Convertible Comparison: Mazda Miata vs. BMW Z4

The search for a new convertible sports car can be one of the most time consuming and difficult automotive segments in the industry to shop for. While there may not be a lot of competition in the convertible sports car segment, there are however many excellent options for top-down performance that makes the decision so difficult. This comparison between the Mazda Miata vs. BMW Z4 will help you make the most informed decision by offering specific details about each new cars performance, fuel economy, driving dynamics, features, options and safety equipment list. With the information provided, you will be able to make the most educated buying decision.

While the Mazda Miata may not seem like it should be compared to a high-end luxury sports car, they are actually very close rivals and have been competing against each other for a some time now. The first and most noticeable difference between the new Mazda Miata and BMW Z4 are their starting prices. The BMW Z4 is $25,000 more than the Mazda Miata, now that’s a big difference considering they both deliver top-down driving with great performance.

While every driver might want to someday own and drive a convertible, many of them are priced well out of the range of the average consumer. This is where the advantage goes to the new Miata. Not only does the new Miata cost almost half as much as the BMW Z4, but it also offers many similar features and options which makes the price difference even more questionable.

The most noticeable difference between these two convertibles lies within their curb weight. The Mazda Miata is almost a thousand pounds lighter than the BMW Z4 which gives the Miata a huge advantage when it comes down to driving dynamics. Built to be a true driver's car, the Miata is not only the best bargain in the business; it’s also one of the best performing. The hands-down winner of this convertible comparison is the Mazda MX-5 Miata.
