2015 Toyota Corolla vs. 2015 Mazda Mazda6 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Toyota Corolla than the Mazda Mazda6. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Toyota Corolla and the Mazda Mazda6 in the front seats.

Convenience
The Mazda Mazda6 requires fewer visits to the gas station than the Toyota Corolla, 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). Based on MSRP, the Toyota Corolla is clearly a better financial choice over the Mazda Mazda6. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Toyota Corolla and the Mazda Mazda6 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Toyota Corolla is much slimmer than the Mazda Mazda6, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. The Toyota Corolla is slightly shorter than the Mazda Mazda6, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
The Toyota Corolla has much less torque than the Mazda Mazda6, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Toyota Corolla has a smaller turning radius than the Mazda Mazda6, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Toyota Corolla is significantly less powerful than the Mazda Mazda6. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Toyota Corolla and the Mazda Mazda6. The Toyota Corolla has less cargo capacity than the Mazda Mazda6, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The Toyota Corolla comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Mazda Mazda6.
