Christian Wardlaw Test Drive Review:

Why did Chevy make the new Corvette a mid-engine car? The company’s engineers simply could not take the Corvette’s classic front-engine, rear-wheel-drive architecture any further in te...

Power Ranked 2013 Ford Mustang GT Premium Convertible RWD better.
"V8 with 420hp vs I4 with 181hp. The Mustang has lots of low end torque while the Miata requires you to wind it out to get to the power."
Handling Ranked 2013 Ford Mustang GT Premium Convertible RWD worse.
"Miata has better engineered front and rear independent suspension. The car is also designed to have neutral stability causing it to rotate around the driver and be easily controllable. Mustang has rental car spec suspension and a live rear axle. The weight distribution is not evenly split front to rear. It also lacks the chassis stiffness of the Miata."
Looks/Style Ranked 2013 Ford Mustang GT Premium Convertible RWD worse.
"It is designed as a convertible. The Mustang is modified from a coupe and has a set of rear seats stretching it out."
Front Seats Ranked 2013 Ford Mustang GT Premium Convertible RWD worse.
"Much more supportive and designed around a smaller person."
Back Seats Ranked 2013 Ford Mustang GT Premium Convertible RWD better.
"There are no rear seats in the Miata."
Cargo Capacity Ranked 2013 Ford Mustang GT Premium Convertible RWD better.
"It has rear seats in addition to a trunk."
Family Car Ranked 2013 Ford Mustang GT Premium Convertible RWD better.
"There are no rear seats in the Miata."
Value Ranked 2013 Ford Mustang GT Premium Convertible RWD worse.
"Better suspension. Better Chassis. Excellent engine characteristics (free revving, no rev hang, easy to rev match downshift, great power delivery) despite lack of power. Neutral handling. Better shifter. Easier to operate convertible top. Incredible gas mileage compared to the V8 (35 average vs 14 average)."
Would Buy Ranked 2013 Ford Mustang GT Premium Convertible RWD worse.
"Better drivers car. Cheaper insurance. Cheaper gas. "
