2022 Hyundai Sonata vs. 2022 Mazda MX-5 Miata

The 2022 Hyundai Sonata is one of the company’s most popular models, due to its elegant appearance, serene cabin and host of luxuries. How does it stack up against the 2022 Mazda MX-5 Miata, a car that is prized for its sexy and sporty curves, brisk acceleration and finely tuned controls?

Design & Style

The Mazda MX-5 Miata comes with the convertible top and 4 cylinder engines which are spunky and playful. It is pleasing to the eyes, especially when purchased in the Grand Touring edition, and passengers within the cabin will be treated to Terracotta style leather upholstery which is richly decorated, and this combined with the Recaro seats and BBS wheels make this a car that is one of a kind.

The newest Hyundai Sonata is distinctive for its finned taillights, boomerang LEDs and lovely curvature. Passengers within the cabin will be treated to high definition screens and the air vents are slim yet efficient with dual digital displays that provide the option of multiple drive modes. The seats are covered with quilted leather that feels and looks wonderful.

Technology & Safety

Both the IIHS and NHTSA love the latest incarnation of the Hyundai Sonata, so much so that the NHTSA gave it a perfect 5 star rating while the IIHS awarded it the Top Safety Pick. Its protective features include a camera with surround view, lane control that is active, the ability to monitor blind spots and cruise control which is adaptive, as well as multiple airbags and automated emergency brakes. Its cabin luxuries include powered and heated seats, keyless start, satellite radio, a Bose audio system, panoramic sunroof and ten inch display.

The Mazda MX-5 Miata is rich in driver assistance gear, and all of it is standardized. This includes alerts for cross traffic in the rear, emergency automatic brakes, frontal collision warnings and notifications when departing lanes. Its cabin luxuries consist of Bluetooth support, HD radio, and the choice of Android Auto or Apple CarPlay.

Performance

The Mazda MX-5 Miata is equipped with an inline 4, sixteen DOHC valve engines that can generate 181 horsepower with 151 pounds of torque, which enables it to accelerate from zero to sixty in 6.5 seconds. Those that purchase the Hyundai Sonata N Line will get a turbo 4 engine that can generate 290 horsepower, enabling it to accelerate from zero to sixty in six seconds.

The Bottom Line

The Mazda MX-5 Miata may look like a sports car, but the Hyundai Sonata behaves like one. It demolishes the Miata when it comes to horsepower and acceleration and this combined with the fact that it seats five passengers while the Mazda MX-5 Miata only seats two makes the Hyundai the obvious winner.
