Advantages of the 2018 Mazda MX-5 Miata Grand Touring

It may not come as a surprise that the Grand Touring has the most standard features, since it is the highest trim. This of course doesn’t mean that the Sport or the Club are poor vehicles, only that the Grand Touring was designed to have more features than the lower two trims. As you can see in the table above, the Grand Touring does indeed complete that task admirably.

If you are looking for navigation, satellite radio, or an auto dimming rearview mirror, then you’ll probably want to go with the Grand Touring trim of the 2018 Mazda MX-5 Miata. If you are really only interested in the satellite radio then the Club trim is for you, and if you don’t want more technology features, then the Sport is calling your name. Unless, of course, you want leather seats, in which case you’ll probably want the Grand Touring trim, as the other two trims have a cloth upholstery.
