2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata: The Golf Clubs Technically Fit
by Josh Sadlier, Senior Editor on July 20, 2016
It's what every golfer wants to know about any convertible:
"Will my golf bag fit?"
And I can attest that the 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata does indeed have room for your golf bag, as long as you don't mind if it rides shotgun.
Of course, the golfer would hope that there's room in the trunk, and for two bags at that. But unlike previous Miatas, the current model's trunk can't even accommodate a single bag with the woods removed. That means a two-person outing is impossible unless your partner agrees to share the passenger compartment with both bags. Let's just leave it at "impossible."
Still, at least there's space for yourself and your clubs, with the latter in full view, which is fine unless you go for a beer after the round and park in the vicinity of an enterprising thief. I'm glad our car has fabric upholstery, by the way; the Grand Touring trim's passenger-side leather would likely take a beating from that golf bag over time.
