Overview

How Much Does a 2021 MAZDA MX-5 Miata Cost?

The 2021 Mazda MX-5 Miata soft-top comes in Sport, Club and Grand Touring trim levels. The RF (retractable fastback) is available as a Club or Grand Touring model. Expect to pay an extra $2,755 or so for an RF. Every MX-5 comes with a 6-speed manual transmission as standard, offering a 6-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters as an option. The automatic will cost between $525 and $600 — depending on the model. Sport ($26,830) has 16-in alloy wheels, sport-tuned exhaust, manual soft top with a glass rear window and defroster, power windows/mirrors/locks, keyless entry/ignition, cruise control, leather-wrapped steering wheel/shift knob/parking brake boot, trip computer, Mazda Connect infotainment system with a 7-in color touchscreen, console-mounted multi-function controller, AM/FM/HD radio, USB port, Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto smartphone integration, and a 6-speaker audio system. Standard safety equipment includes the i-Activsense package bringing blind spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, forward-collision warning with automatic emergency braking, and lane departure warning. Club trim ($30,290) with the manual transmission adds Bilstein shock absorbers, limited-slip differential, front strut tower brace and an induction sound enhancer. Opting for the automatic transmission deletes that equipment. Other standard features (regardless of transmission) include 17-in dark gunmetal alloy wheels, front air dam, rear-lip spoiler, heated seats, upgraded upholstery with silver stitching, and a Bose 9-speaker audio system.   Manual-transmission Club models are eligible for a Brembo/BBS Recaro package bringing Brembo front brakes with red calipers, 17-in dark gunmetal BBS wheels, aero kit, and heated Recaro sport seats. With the RF, this package also includes a hand-painted black roof. Grand Touring trim ($31,770) with the manual transmission has the Club trim’s limited-slip differential and sport suspension. The automatic models don’t have most of the Club’s performance upgrades. This trim also comes with automatic on/off adaptive headlights with automatic high beams, heated side mirrors (self-dimming on the driver’s side), rain-sensing wipers, leather seating surfaces, automatic climate control, navigation, road sign recognition, and model-specific alloy wheels.

Is the 2021 MAZDA MX-5 Miata a Safe Car?

The MX-5 comes standard with 4-wheel anti-lock disc brakes, electronic traction/ stability control, tire pressure monitoring, and front and side airbags. Standard driver assistance features in the i-Activsense array include lane departure warning, low-speed emergency braking, and blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert. To date, neither the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) nor the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has crash-tested the MX-5 Miata. But Mazda vehicles in general have a great reputation for safety.

Competition

2021 MAZDA MX-5 Miata vs the competition

2021 Mini Cooper Convertible — The front-drive Mini soft-top has a rear seat and three turbocharged engine options. And it has more technology and safety features than the Miata. The Mini’s cloth top can also be opened partially to act like a targa roof. 2021 Ford Mustang Convertible — The Mustang convertible costs about the same as the Grand Touring MX-5, but it’s also much larger and heavier. The Mustang certainly won’t ride or handle the same, but it has more standard horsepower, greater interior space and a broader range of options. Used Porsche Boxster — A 2014 to 2017 Porsche Boxster (mid-engined/rear-drive) has more power and a better performance pedigree, as well as a quieter and more comfortable cabin.
