2020 MAZDA3 vs 2020 Toyota Corolla

Serving Troy, MI

The Mazda3 and the Toyota Corolla have been directly compared against each other for almost two decades. As you prepare to pick out your next compact car, you need to check out all that these two models deliver behind the wheel so that you can make an informed selection. The 2020 Mazda3 sits in the model's fourth generation, which launched last year with stunning updates across most surfaces. The 2020 Toyota Corolla, on the other hand, entered its current production two years ago.

Exterior

The 2020 Mazda3 has a sultry look from front to rear, and it is available in a 4-door sedan and a 5-door hatchback body style. The definition throughout the smooth hood carries beautifully into the chrome-accented grille. This accent piece rises up on both sides to highlight the angled LED headlights. The sides are equally smooth with a single character line that winds dramatically from front to rear. In comparison, the 2020 Toyota Corolla has a sharper angle down the hood as well as a brooding grille that covers most of the front end. The profile and the sides have a more rigid appearance, and this extends to the axe-shaped headlights.

Interior

The Mazda3's sporty elegance extends inside the cabin, where you will find a dual-tone color scheme with accent stitching in some trims. The touch display screen for the infotainment equipment rises up above the dashboard and provides controls for the navigation system, smart device apps, Bluetooth communications, and more. The Mazda3's additional features could include a premium Bose sound system, a push-button ignition, an auto climate control system, mounted functions on the steering wheel, and many other items. In the 2020 Toyota Corolla, on the other hand, the display screen also rises up out of the dashboard. However, it does so from an angled mount that holds the climate system controls. The center is separated from the console, which creates a different feel inside the cabin.

Performance

Across the four trims available for the 2020 Mazda3, one impressive powertrain is standard. This is a 2.5-liter, 4-cylinder Skyactiv®-G engine that puts out 186 horsepower. The 2020 Toyota Corolla is available with three powertrains. The most powerful gas engine available is a 2.0-liter, 4-cylinder gas design that delivers 169 horsepower. The base engine is capable of producing 139 horsepower.
