Serving Troy, MI

Many drivers have preferred the popular Mazda3 since its introduction in 2003. It is offered in sedan and hatchback trims, which adds to its versatility and appeal to different car shoppers. The 2020 Mazda3 Sedan and the 2020 Mazda3 Hatchback are now in their fourth generation. Because this generation was introduced in 2019 with extensive updates throughout, you will be pleased to learn that the 2020 model continues to reflect these exciting improvements as well as a few minor updates that are fresh for the new model year. The two body styles are comparable in most areas, but there are a few differences that could impact your buying decision.


When you arrive at Suburban Mazda of Troy to view these two models in greater detail, you will see that the Mazda3 Sedan for 2020 comes in four trims. The Mazda3 Hatchback is only offered in three trims, but all seven of these trims for 2020 are outfitted with the same advanced powertrain. This is a 2.5-liter Skyactiv®-G, 4-cylinder engine that will undoubtedly impress you with 187 horsepower. An electronically-controlled, 6-speed auto transmission moderates the power. Some of the additional features that impact the performance capabilities of both of these vehicles include anti-lock brakes, all-wheel drive or front-wheel drive, G-Vectoring Control Plus, and other items.


While the 2020 Mazda3 Sedan and the Mazda3 Hatchback are comparable in the performance that they deliver, their styling differences are among the most noticeable and significant. These two vehicles have a similar front end, which is defined by a smooth, rolling hood that has beautiful definition along the sides. This definition angles inward as it approaches the hexagonal grille with a mesh background. The chrome element that carries across the lower section of the grille works its way into the angled headlights for a unique effect. While the front design of the two versions is similar, the sides and rear have standout qualities. The 2020 Mazda3 Sedan’s side contour line is crisp and rolls gracefully from front to rear. The roof has a sharp angle downward to create a defined trunk space. In comparison, the contouring throughout the side of the Mazda3 Hatchback is smoother, but it follows the same path. The roof trends sharply downward in a true hatchback-like fashion.


The unique exterior designs of these two Mazda3 versions provide comparable interior space with spatial differences throughout the cargo areas. When you compare their trims, you will discover that they are equally well-appointed with exceptional features. Some of the many desired items that could be in your Mazda3 for 2020 are speed-sensing power door locks, a 12-speaker Bose sound system, an automatic temperature control system with multiple zones, the Mazda Connect infotainment system with a color display screen, advanced keyless entry with a push-button starter, paddle shifters and mounted controls on a leather steering wheel, powered and heated seats in the front row, USB ports and other equipment.
