Safety

Standard safety features include antilock brakes and side-impact airbags. Traction control and an electronic stability system are included in the optional Premium Package, which is available on Grand Touring trims. Many affordable cars, by comparison, now have standard stability systems. For a full list of safety features, check out the Standard Equipment & Specs page.

The Miata hasn't been crash-tested by the federal government or the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.
