I traversed Road America in a manual 2021 Mazda MX-5 Miata Club RF and an automatic 2022 Subaru BRZ Premium.

Although an outstanding improvement to a reliable, beginner-friendly sports vehicle, the 2021 Miata RF is more costly

The Mazda MX-5 Miata and Subaru BRZ should be at the top of your list if you're looking for a contemporary

The current-generation Miata more than lives up to its long history as a favourite among enthusiasts

A prime example is the hardtop 2021 Mazda Miata RF, which just took up the coveted MotorBiscuit 

However, the Subaru BRZ receives a number of significant improvements for the 2022 model year.

Nevertheless, curious commuters and ambitious autocrossers desire the answer to this issue. 

 Therefore, which of these sports vehicles should you bring if you're preparing for a track day? 

The fourth-generation ND Miata did a great job of bringing the legendary roadster back to its lightweight roots,

The RF trim's top also adds about 100 pounds, but it transforms the 2021 Mazda Miata into a real year-round sports car. 

Additionally, according to MotorTrend, the hard-top convertible is "more exotic than most supercars" 

Overall, the 2020 Mazda Miata and the 2021 Mazda Miata RF are nearly similar.

The only modifications are newly-standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, which are now optional interiors in white Nappa leather.

 The Miata RF is still exclusively available from Mazda in Club and Grand Touring versions.
