At first, let’s look at the price. In this section, both cars appear to be quite equal as their prices are not more than $23,500. However, new Ford Mustang costs even $1,000 less than new Mazda. Now let’s see what standard engines were put into these models. Mazda MX-5 Miata got the 2.0L I4, 16 valves engine with the 167-horsepower output. New Ford Mustang is for sure much more powerful than that, having 3.7L V6, 24 valves and 305-horsepower. Though Mazda Miata is more economic in terms of fuel consumption as it offers about 3mpg more while in the city.
