All grades of the 2021 Miata now comes standard with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, rather than these features coming on the Club grade in 2020.

The prices for the premium paint colors change for 2021. Snowflake White Pearl Mica is now $395, instead of $200 for the 2020 model. Machine Gray Metallic is $495, rather than $300. Soul Red Crystal remains at $595.

The Miata Club grade with a manual gearbox continues to be available with the Brembo/BBS/Recaro Package. It includes Brembo front brakes, BBS 17-inch forged wheels, and heated Recaro sport seats. The pack is $4,470 on the soft top models and $4,670 on the RF.

The range-topping Grand Touring trim gets some of the biggest updates. Deep Crystal Blue is a newly available exterior color. For $300, buyers can now get white Nappa leather interior upholstery, too. The infotainment system gains wireless Apple CarPlay. The gray cloth soft top carries over from last year and is $200.
