Being one of the most competitive vehicle segments in the entirety of the auto industry, customers are always wondering which compact vehicle they should select. Stacking up how vehicles measure up to each other when it comes to issues like fuel economy and style is a key part of purchasing a new vehicle. Two of the most popular lines of compact cars are the 2016 Toyota Corolla and the 2016 Mazda3. Your friends here at Preston Mazda are always looking to help, which is why we have broken down some key differences between the 2016 Mazda3 and the 2016 Toyota Corolla.

When it comes to going under the hood, Mazda has the clear-cut advantage. Not only do you find a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine that out-trumps the 1.8-liter 4-cylinder found in the Corolla, but the performance of the engine shines as well. The engine of the Mazda3 will grant the driver a whopping 155 horsepower, while the 2016 Toyota Corolla only possesses 132 horsepower. When it comes to fuel economy, the 2016 Mazda3 has the advantage as well. We’re talking about a jaw-dropping 33 MPG combined, while the Corolla only grants you 31 MPG combined.

Mazda also holds the advantage when it comes to minimal ground clearance, standing 6.1 inches above the ground while the Toyota Corolla stays at 5.5 inches. This allows the Mazda3 to glide over many of the obstructions that you may encounter on your journey. The Mazda3 also boasts larger wheels than the Corolla. The wheels of the Mazda3 are sized at 16 x 6.5, while the Toyota Corolla’s tires are 15 x 6. This allows your vehicle to have not only a better base but superior handling as well.
