Comparison Review

Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Mazda CX-3 than in the Toyota C-HR. The Toyota C-HR offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Mazda CX-3, offering the driver and front passenger a bit more room and comfort.

You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Mazda CX-3 as you will with the Toyota C-HR, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

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 Mazda CX-3 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Toyota C-HR. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the Mazda CX-3 and the Toyota C-HR have similar Destination Charges.

The Mazda CX-3 is a little narrower than the Toyota C-HR, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. The Mazda CX-3 is slightly shorter than the Toyota C-HR, which may make it easier to park.

With somewhat higher torque, the Mazda CX-3 transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Toyota C-HR.

The Mazda CX-3 has the same turning radius as the Toyota C-HR, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

In terms of horsepower, it's a virtual tie between the Mazda CX-3 and the Toyota C-HR.

In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Mazda CX-3 and the Toyota C-HR. The Mazda CX-3 has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Toyota C-HR.

The Mazda CX-3 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Toyota C-HR.
