2018 Mazda MX-5 Miata vs. 2018 FIAT 124 Spider
When it comes to coupe sports cars, the Mazda MX-5 Miata stands out in the minds of car enthusiasts. The Miata has been an icon for decades and it continues to get better and better. Modern technology like MAZDA CONNECT™ and radar cruise control are special features that make this little roadster unique.
How does it compare to others, though? There aren't a lot of cars like the Miata, and that says a lot about the car. The FIAT 124 Spider, though, is a formidable competitor. These cars are very similar in terms of size, performance, and design. We thought this would make for a great matchup, so without further ado, let's see how these sports cars compare.

Test drive the 2018 Mazda MX-5 Miata in Irvine CA
Drivers of each car will have almost identical engine specs. Both the Miata and the 124 Spider feature an inline-four-cylinder engine, though the Miata's is 2.0 liters compared to the Spider's 1.4 liters. Both cars average 30 combined MPG and up to 35 on the highway, so there is no real differentiator there. Technology, however, leans in favor of the Miata. While integrated navigation is available on upper trims of the 124 Spider, it does not come standard. The Miata Grand Touring comes standard with navigation complete with voice activation. That is just one of the many features of the standard MAZDA CONNECT™ infotainment system that also includes music, smartphone linkage, and personalization settings.
