2017 Mazda Mazda3 vs. 2017 Toyota Corolla Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Toyota Corolla than the Mazda Mazda3, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Mazda Mazda3 and the Toyota Corolla in the front seats.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Mazda Mazda3 as you will with the Toyota Corolla, 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). Whether you pick the Mazda Mazda3 or the Toyota Corolla, it's going to cost you about the same. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Mazda Mazda3 and the Toyota Corolla have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Mazda Mazda3 is a little wider than the Toyota Corolla, 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 Mazda Mazda3 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Toyota Corolla.

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

Handling
The Mazda Mazda3 has a smaller turning radius than the Toyota Corolla, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

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

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Mazda Mazda3 and the Toyota Corolla. The Mazda Mazda3 has less cargo capacity than the Toyota Corolla, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The Mazda Mazda3 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Toyota Corolla.
