Crash test data is lacking for the 2008 Mazda MX-5 Miata, but standard safety gear is what you’d expect from a modern roadster.

The 2008 Mazda MX-5 Miata features front driver and passenger airbags, as well as side airbags that "provide head and torso protection," according to ConsumerGuide.

Other safety features available on the MX-5 include a tire pressure monitoring system, which can prevent accidents by alerting the driver when the air pressure is low. A good braking system with anti-lock brakes and vehicle stability control also help keep the riders safe, though the stability control system is an option only on the most expensive version of the 2008 Mazda MX-5 Miata.

 

Conclusion

Although the 2008 Mazda MX-5 Miata hasn't been rated yet in crash tests, it has many safety features standard, and stability control is available.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
