Mazda and Nissan, two of the renowned Japanese automakers, have long been noted for their consistency in terms of producing the best vehicles. That said, the competition seemed to have heightened up as both the GT-R and MX-5 try to outdo each other. At the recently concluded New York Auto Show, the 2017 Nissan GT-R and Mazda's MX-5 Miata RF were some of the major stars that have been unveiled right before those who have been anticipating for it.
Nissan GT-R Versus Mazda MX-5 MIATA
According to Auto World News, the Nissan GT-R is relentless and immediately aggressive considering its roaring sound that's beautiful to listen to. Although for some, it's nothing but a loud noise, a significant number of car enthusiasts consider it as a revving sound that has been likened to Mozart's or Beethoven's classical piece. Apart from the sound, which is only one of the many noteworthy specs of the Nissan GT-R, experts say that driving this kind of vehicle may be a little challenging to drive down the freeway since the driver has to work a little extra to stay in between the lines.
On the other hand, Driving reported that as the fourth-generation Mazda MX-5 Miata debuted last year, it seems to be missing out something. Now, Mazda has answered the call for action of a lot of people with the 2017 MX-5 Miata RF, which stands for Retractable Fastback. More than just having a top-notch targa-styled folding roof, which stows away behind the rear seats, the company says that the advantages are plenty that buyers can enjoy their MX-5 Miata year-round without worrying about snow or ice, adding that the roof panel is concealed beneath a fastback-styled rear window.
What Else Could The Cars Have To Offer?
Mazda reveals that the car is the new retractable hardtop version of the Miata but instead of a conventional design the team at Mazda has employed a cool fastback look. Meanwhile, it was found that Nissan has apparently improved the GT-R's ride which is a sore point on previous models, which, in turn, has been credited to a more rigid body structure and new suspension.
