The 2019 Toyota Corolla vs. The 2018 Mazda3 4-Door


Buying a compact car doesn’t need to mean sacrificing the features and specs you want, and the 2019 Toyota Corolla and 2018 Mazda3 4-Door are both proof of that. Both of these sedans feature surprisingly refined cabins for models in this segment, as well as capable, fuel-efficient performance and an abundance of high-tech features. There are, of course, a few differences to consider, so we put together this handy comparison to assist Gastonia drivers who may be on the fence. When you’re ready, take the trip to either Toyota of Gastonia or Momentum Mazda for the bigger picture.


Performance Specs and Fuel Economy

Both Toyota’s and Mazda’s compact sedans are sure to offer you capable performance, though you may choose one over the other based on your performance-versus-fuel economy priorities:

  • Toyota Corolla – Every Corolla is powered by a 1.8L four-cylinder engine, which is offered with a six-speed manual or continuously variable transmission (CVT). Most versions of this model get 132 hp and 128 lb-ft of torque, but you can also opt for an LE ECO model that bumps output to 140 hp and 126 lb-ft of torque; with the LE ECO model, you’ll also get an impressive EPA-estimated 40 mpg highway and 30 mpg city.
  • Mazda3 4-Door – The Mazda3, too, places a high premium on performance, beginning with the 2.0L four-cylinder engine on the base Sport trim, which gets 155 hp and 150 lb-ft of torque. Move up to the Touring or Grand Touring trim, and you’ll get a 2.5L four-cylinder engine that puts out an 184 hp and 185 lb-ft of torque. With the Mazda3, you can also expect to achieve up to 37 mpg highway and 28 mpg city.


Feature Highlights

The Corolla and Mazda3 are both capable and well-rounded cars that are offered with in-demand features like Bluetooth®, advanced infotainment, and premium safety tech. Here’s a look at some of the most popular features on both models:

  • Toyota Corolla – The Toyota Corolla is offered with a number of high-tech features, including the Entune™ Premium Audio with Integrated Navigation infotainment package. You’ll also get a standard Toyota Safety Sense™ package that includes a variety of advanced safety features.
  • Mazda3 4-Door – Opt for the higher trim levels in the Mazda3 and you’ll enjoy luxury touches like full leather upholstery. You can also get a premium nine-speaker Bose® sound system, a full-color Active Driving Display, and active safety features including a Lane Departure Warning System.
