2015 Dodge Dart vs. 2014 Mazda Mazda3 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will feel a little more squished in the Dodge Dart than in the Mazda Mazda3, due to the Dodge Dart's smaller rear head- and legroom. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Mazda Mazda3, the Dodge Dart may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Dodge Dart as you will with the Mazda Mazda3, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). When looking only at MSRP, the Dodge Dart will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Mazda Mazda3. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Dodge Dart is much higher than that for the Mazda Mazda3.

Dimensions
The Dodge Dart is a little wider than the Mazda Mazda3, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. When looking at overall length, the Dodge Dart takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Mazda Mazda3.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Dodge Dart transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Mazda Mazda3.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Dodge Dart is somewhat more powerful than the Mazda Mazda3.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Dodge Dart and the Mazda Mazda3.

Warranty
The Dodge Dart comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Mazda Mazda3.
