Car Model Comparison - Mazda vs. Subaru

While the engines under the hood share some similarities, the Subaru BRZ is slightly ahead of the pack in both horsepower and torque. However, the catch is fuel efficiency; for more power, the Subaru BRZ sacrifices its fuel economy, which is where the Mazda MX-5 Miata wins out. While the Subaru BRZ has slightly more fuel tank capacity, overall you’re still saving more in the long run in gas station visits with a Mazda MX-5 Miata from Hall Mazda.

These two makes of vehicle have very different impressions and lineups. Subaru is notorious for outdoor vehicles. However, when it comes to a more luxuriously-designed coupe, the Mazda selection better fits the bill. You can see this not only in its stylish trim and color options but also in its sleeker frame and lighter curb weight. For a sportier drive, look to the Mazda MX-5 Miata to turn corners and turn heads throughout the Milwaukee, WI area.
