2021 Mazda MX-5 Goes Up Against the 2021 Ford Mustang in BC, Canada

When choosing a sports car, there’s a lot more to consider than horsepower and acceleration.  To provide consumers some perspective on what to look for, we’ve created an in-depth look at how the 2021 Mazda MX-5 compares to the 2021 Ford Mustang.

Which Sports Car Delivers a Better Performance in BC, Canada?: 2021 Mazda MX-5 or 2021 Ford Mustang

While the Ford Mustang turns out a disappointing fuel economy of 21 mpg in the city and 32 mpg on the highway, the 2021 Mazda MX-5’s 2.0L 4-cylinder engine delivers a money-saving 26 mpg around downtown and 35 mpg on the open road.

Sure, the Mustang’s 2.3L 4-cylinder engine might rev at a higher (and more irritating) decibel at stoplights, but it’s the MX-5 that turns heads when it takes on sharp city corners. Measuring 90.9-in in wheelbase and 154-in in length, the Mazda is a full 32-in shorter and 26-in slimmer than the Ford. The former’s comparatively svelte figure makes a noticeable difference when weaving through freeway traffic.

Which Sports Car Has More Standard Driver Assist Features in BC, Canada?: 2021 Mazda MX-5 or 2021 Ford Mustang

Both the 2021 Mazda MX-5 and Ford Mustang are equipped with half a dozen airbags, a tire pressure monitoring system, and three-point safety belts (along with other basic security features). However, the latter falls woefully short in the standard driver assist category.

The base level of the MX-5 comes with Blind Spot Monitoring, Lane Departure Warning, and Rear Cross Traffic Alert - all of which have become essential features for highway driving. Its standard rearview camera is perfect for navigating crowded parking lots. Mustang owners who expect these programmes should be prepared to pay for expensive upgrades.

Which Sports Car Has the Best Technology Features in BC, Canada?: 2021 Mazda MX-5 or 2021 Ford Mustang

Every 2021 MX-5 comes standard with a 7-in full colour touchscreen in the centre stack, equipped with the Mazda Connect infotainment system. Using the interactive display, passengers can access internet radio programs like Aha, Pandora, and Stitcher - along with their favourite smartphone apps. 

Invest in the base model of the Mustang and you get none of that technology. Upgrades are required for all, including the LCD touchscreen, and come with a hefty price tag. 

Both sports cars can read text messages aloud from a paired smartphone. However, the Mustang will only do so when traveling under 3 mph and responses are only permitted when the vehicle is stopped. The MX-5, conversely, allows you to read and respond to SMS hands-free at any speed.

Which Sports Car GT Trim Level Has the Most Features in BC, Canada?: 2021 Mazda MX-5 or 2021 Ford Mustang

Adding a long list of upgrades and systems, the 2021 MX-5 Grand Touring has become the most popular trim level for sports car consumers. The GT brings features including Mazda Navigation, Traffic Sign Recognition, and a 9-speaker Bose sound system (with subwoofer.)

Best of all, the trim level includes a 3-year trial subscription to SiriusXM Traffic and Travel Link, which provides real-time information on weather, sports, fuel prices, nearby parking, and more.

As for the Mustang GT...Do we even have to say it?
