2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata: Will Golf Clubs and a Passenger Fit?
by Josh Sadlier, Senior Editor on August 9, 2016
I've already demonstrated that our 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata has no trouble transporting both a golfer and a golf bag, as long as you don't mind putting the bag in the front seat. But what if your wife's car is in for service, and she needs a ride somewhere, and the only way it'll work is if you drop her off en route to your tee time?
Now, I'll hazard a guess that most Miata drivers either think golf is lame or have another car they could use for this scenario. But sometimes life puts you in special situations, and this was one of those. It didn't make any kind of sense to loop back to get my clubs after dropping her off, so I told her this was going to be great. We'd strap her in first, put the clubs on her lap and that would be that. "You'll love it," I explained.
I can tell you that I got her to her destination safe and sound, and neither she nor the clubs were any worse for wear. Well, she actually wasn't talking to me at that point, so I'm speculating there. But the clubs, at least, were tip-top.
