How Does Mazda3 Engine Stack Up Against The Toyota Corolla's?

When it comes to horsepower and performance, the Mazda3 brings everything you could ask for to the roads and highways of Texas, and it surpasses the standard engine options offered by Toyota. The Mazda3 is powered by a 186-horsepower 2.5-Liter SKYACTIV-G 4-cylinder engine, whereas drivers who choose the Toyota Corolla will have the standard 169-horsepower 2.0-Liter 4-cylinder engine. Considering there is more horsepower for the new Mazda3, you can look forward to more pep on the highways during your daily work commute.

The Mazda3 also gives new car buyers the option for the all-wheel-drive which the Corolla does not. Having an all-wheel drivetrain for the Texas driving and weather elements makes for more traction and control when you need it most.

Interior Space and Cargo Capacity

Both the Mazda3 and Toyota offer an array of cloth and leather trim options, however, if you're searching for additional space for your travels, the Mazda3 adds slightly more cargo and legroom for your passengers. The Toyota Corolla provides up to 88.6-cubic feet of passenger space, and the Mazda3 offers 92.8-cubic feet of space for passengers which makes all the difference if you travel with taller friends or family members.

Compact Sedan Technology

If you're looking to keep up with modern day drivers on the highways while having an ample selection of tech amenities at your fingertips, the Mazda3 gives drivers tons of options along with a few standard features that make every commute a breeze. Even the standard trim for the Mazda3 comes with the responsive Mazda Connect™ Infotainment System with the 8.8-inch large center display, HD Radio, Voice Command, Multifunction Commander Control, and Bluetooth hands-free phone, audio streaming capability, and connectivity to your smartphone through Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

The touchscreen display for the Toyota Corolla is smaller at 7-inches, and though the Corolla offers similar connectivity options, they are not available on the same amount of trims as the Mazda. Plus, reviews reveal that the Mazda Connect™ Infotainment system is more responsive and less laggy.

The Mazda3 goes above and beyond to provide drivers with advanced safety measures as well as driver-assist features that aid in awareness and readiness on the roads and highways. At a standard trim for the Mazda3, drivers have the included brake assist, rearview camera, and the driver and front passenger knee airbag.
