The Miata is legendary among driving enthusiasts. It is—quite possibly—the best handling car in existence. The Miata is the bar that other sports cars have to meet or surpass. Many don’t. Mazda has refined the Miata over the decades to turn it into the affordable driver’s car that it is.

Today, we’ll be going over the fan-favorite Club trim and the top-tier Grand Touring trim. With this comparison of standard and available features, you should be able to make an informed decision on which model you prefer.

Standard Features

Every 2020 Miata comes powered by a 2.0-liter Skyactiv-G four-cylinder engine. It pumps out 181 horsepower and 151 lb-ft of torque. That engine is paired with the classic Miata six-speed manual transmission and a RWD drivetrain. For those that prefer it, a six-speed automatic is also available. However, the signature Mazda performance package is only available on six-speed manual Miata models.

Each Miata also gets myriad safety features. Forward collision warning with brake assist, blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, lane departure warning, and a rearview camera are all standard.

Club Features

The Club gets multiple new additions. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, a nine-spear Bose audio system, satellite radio, and heated seats are standard. Manual transmission Club models also get a limited-slip differential and Bilstein shocks. A soft-top is standard, but a retractable hardtop is available.

The Club-only Brembo BBS Recaro package adds Brembo performance brakes, 17-inch BBS wheels, and Recaro bucket seats. As mentioned before, tunnel under bars, a front strut tower brace, and a lower arm bar are available to six-speed manual Miata Club models.

Grand Touring Features

The Grand Touring is the most luxurious Miata model. It gets leather upholstery, automatic climate control, integrated navigation, and heated side mirrors. It gets numerous safety additions as well, including adaptive headlights with automatic high beams, a traffic sigh recognition system, and automatic rain-sensing wipers. For the first time ever, the Grand Touring trim also gains access to all performance upgrades that the Club trim does, excluding the Brembo BBS Recaro package.
