2017 Mazda MX-5 Miata vs 2017 Toyota 86 near League City, TX

 2017 Mazda MX-5 Miata vs 2017 Toyota 86 near League City, TX

The vehicle above is the 2017 Mazda MX-5 Miata with optional features shown. 

Here at DeMontrond Mazda, we want to put one of our favorite vehicles against one of its leading competitors. Continue reading this comparison of the 2017 Mazda MX-5 Miata vs 2017 Toyota 86 to see why we think that the Miata comes out on top! Give our friendly staff a call at 281-823-6000 for more information!

Let’s take a look at what’s beneath the hood of these machines. Just by taking a quick look at the specs, you’ll notice that the Miata produces less horsepower than the Toyota 86. The standard with a SKYACTIV®G1 2.0L DOHC 4-cylinder powertrain delivers  155-hp and 148 lb.-ft. of torque, while the 86 gets up to 205-hp and 156 lb.-ft. of torque with its 2.0L DOHC 4-cylinder engine. But don’t get the wrong idea—the MX-5 Miata was designed for speed, not power. This speedy car weighs 2,332-lbs. while its competitor, the 86, is much heavier at 2774-lbs. The 86 is clearly a more powerful vehicle, but when it comes to racetrack speeds, the MX-5 Miata takes the win.

Audiophiles will love the driver and passenger headrest speakers in the MX-5 Miata, which will have you become one with the music, which is just another feature not offered by the competitor. Both vehicles offer steering wheel-mounted controls and Bluetooth®2 hands-free connectivity so that you can multitask by taking a call or changing your audio track while keeping your hands where they need to be. A unique feature of the 86 is the speed-sensing volume control.

Staying comfortable is a must, and there is one car in this 2017 Mazda MX-5 Miata vs 2017 Toyota 86 comparison that is more generous in terms of interior room than the other. Slide into the cockpit of the MX-5 Miata and stretch out in the 43.1 inches of legroom for you and your copilot to enjoy. The 86, however, might have you feeling a little cramped in the front seat with only 41.9 inches of legroom.

Although both of these vehicles have unique exteriors, the MX-5 Miata has more to love. With its muscular body and aggressive front fascia, this vehicle offers a more high-performance look than the 86, which although looks sporty, doesn’t have the same awe-inspiring body lines and curves. If you love feeling the wind in your hair as you take joyrides down Gulf Freeway, you’ll be exited to know that the MX-5 Miata gives you the option to choose between the coupe and the convertible configuration, unlike the 86 which does not have a drop-top option. Standard on the MX-5 Miata is a rear lip spoiler and a Piano Black seat back bar trim. This is yet another feature that you won’t find standard on the 86. Both of these vehicles offer unique exterior paint colors, with the MX-5 Miata boasting gorgeous shades like Soul Metallic Red and Meteor Gray Mica.

After reading this 2017 Mazda MX-5 Miata vs 2017 Toyota 86 near League City, TX, comparison, the MX-5 Miata can’t help but shine! Visit us at DeMontrond Mazda to see our favorite vehicle up close and in person. We are conveniently located at 20101 Gulf Freeway in Webster, TX. See you soon!

Many competing new car dealers try to "pad their profits" by duping customers into paying for "pre-installed" add-ons such as paint sealant, anti-theft devices, and vehicle tracking systems. Thankfully, DeMontrond Mazda does NOT play the unsavory games played by competitors. Working our deal with Chris Danzell was a pleasure, as we were presented with quick, clear pricing, no surprise fees, and a very fair trade-in allowance. Quite simply: there was zero stress, and we feel confidence, knowing that we are valued customers. I absolutely recommend this dealer, and I will send more business to Chris.

Been to a few Dealerships before coming to DeMontrond. This is one of the friendliest dealerships in Town. Met with Chris Danielle and this guy is really knowledgeable and friendly. He answered all our questions and was very knowledgeable on the particular Car we were looking to purchase. The one thing we appreciated also was that we felt no pressure to buy from Chris. He made the whole purchasing experience a breeze. Would definitely recommend this dealer ship to fam n friends......

Dealing with Kenny was great! The only reason I gave it four stars instead of five stars because I was there for about five hours which I thought was excessive. Happy with the purchase and happy with the people I dealt with though! I would recommend them in dealing with Kenny Frost.

Give him four out of five stars. Only thing keeping me from giving it five stars was having to be there for five hours which I thought was a little excessive. With that said, everyone I dealt with was good to deal with and would definitely recommend Kenny Froisy to anyone looking for a vehicle! Overall, I would definitely go back! Kenny was great to deal with, talk to you, and tried his best to make the experience pleasant and meaningful. He was kind enough to get the red bow to put on the car for my daughter to try to make it extra special. That’s the guy you want to see!

Came into the dealership looking for a new car. Marco was extremely knowledgeable about the cars on site and friendly. I was there for over 5 hours, and never once did I feel like Marco was pushing me to buy a car, even after asking for 5-6 different cars and test drives. This is a breathe of fresh air compared to other dealerships in the area where they only really see me as a $ sign. Once I decided on a car, Marco helped me pick the trim that I wanted and would fit in my budget. I had asked him how late he was staying when i first arrived and could not help but notice that he stayed later than he originally intended to make sure that I had everything I needed. The financing and paperwork was easy. When I let them know that I needed to get a taxi there (I live 50 min away) they offered to pick me up and drive me to the dealership for free. Salesperson and manager could not get higher marks! Thanks again!

Allan was very professional and patient, not pushy or overbearing (even during the pandemic). He was able to answer all our questions or made sure he got answers if he didn't know them. He worked with us to get us the model and color we wanted. The dealership even allowed us to drive an equivalent model while the actual car is being delivered.

We bought a car almost a year ago and our experience was great. Josue Montoya was our salesman. Very thorough, patient and courteous. We highly recommend on that experience alone. Fast forward to this week and we hit a large object in the road on our way to Dallas. We couldn’t remember what coverage we had for Roadside assistance etc and called Josue at 8:30 pm on his cell. Not only did he answer but helped us through the whole process with the help of his managers. In short, the service has just been over the top great. highly, highly recommend this dealership and Josue.

We went in to view the options and check about trading in my '12 Cruze. We worked with Marco and he was great. Opted to get the 2020 Mx5 RF and it is amazing. Marco and the rest of the staff there were nice, informative and fair with all that we discussed. Since taking it home Marco has also been super prompt at answering my questions and followups for the add-ons we ordered. If their service keeps up like this, we'll be part of the demontrond family for quite some time. Also, just look at how great this car looks!

We were quoted over $1,200 from a local repair shop to fix our AC which included a new computer. When we actually wanted to get it fixed they were closed so we brought the car here even though I always think dealership repairs are a lot more expensive than normal. Turned out the repair was half what was expected and we managed to get the AC, brakes overhauled, and coolant flush for less than what we were originally quoted for the AC repair. Only complaint was that we were told it would be ready in the morning and it was barely ready before the end of the day. They even offered us a loaner the day before because of an earlier delay because of a part though we had a extra car.
