2016 Mazda Miata near Phoenix AZ

At first glance, it doesn’t appear that a comparison between the 2016 Mazda Miata near Phoenix AZ and 2017 Nissan 370Z is fair, considering the 370Z’s far superior power output and transmission system. However, there is more than meets the eye when it comes to breaking these two roadsters down. The 2016 Miata is over 1,000 pounds lighter than the 370Z, allowing it to rip around corners and down the open road effortlessly, also letting the wind blow through your hair in the beautiful Arizona weather. Inside, the Miata also features much more advanced technology than is present in the 2017 370Z, such as Mazda Connect™ and Push Button Ignition, both of which allow you to stay connected to both your ride and your world. Add that to the Miata’s 2016 “World Car of the Year” designation and the iconic roadster proves that any competition can be won with integrity, durability and care under the hood and around the body.
