2016 Dodge Dart vs. 2018 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. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Dodge Dart and the Mazda Mazda3 in the front seats.

Convenience
The Dodge Dart will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Mazda Mazda3, making it more convenient to drive.

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). The Dodge Dart is somewhat more expensive 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 similar torque, the Dodge Dart and the Mazda Mazda3 do an equal job of transmitting their engine's power to their wheels.

Performance
The Dodge Dart has less horsepower than the Mazda Mazda3, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

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.
