Mazda MX-5 Old v New Comparison: First-generation NA v fourth-gen ND

Whether you're old enough to remember them or not, the 1980s were cool.

Subaru Liberty Old v New Comparison: Fourth-generation 3.0R v sixth-gen 3.6R

Reflecting on a brand's past is a great way to highlight progress. CarAdvice has previously compared iconic models such as the Jaguar E-Type, Peugeot 205 GTi and Mini Cooper S with their newest respective iterations.

Old v New : 1994 v 2014 Subaru WRX, 1989 v 2014 Peugeot GTi, 1968 v 2014 Mini Cooper S

Comparing old with new might seem like an unfair comparison because, with few exceptions, new models are bigger, safer, more refined and more economical, often quicker, too. All of which might leave an earlier iteration without a hope. However, the flipside is that previous models are smaller and rawer, which are negatives if you’re talking about a Corolla, but can be desirable qualities in the rarefied realm of high-performance icons...
