Drivers looking for an exciting compact car that’s fun to drive choose the 2019 Mazda3. The Mazda3 is sporty, fuel efficient, and offers a long list of standard and available technology features. These are just a few of the reasons the Mazda3 is so popular at area Las Vegas car dealers like CardinaleWay Mazda. Some buyers who are considering buying the Mazda3 may also be looking at the 2019 Toyota Corolla. We’ll take a look at both vehicles and discover which one comes out on top.
The Toyota Corolla has stable handling, but it’s not as sporty as the Mazda3. The Mazda3 has engaging and athletic handling that allows it to glide over bumpy roads. Mazda’s standard G-Vectoring Control Plus aids performance by applying light braking force when the Mazda3 corners, shifting weight forward to increase traction. The Toyota Corolla doesn’t have a similar system.
While Toyota has made inroads in giving the Corolla a more attractive exterior, its styling doesn’t rise to the level of the Mazda3, which looks sleeker and more sophisticated than the Corolla. The Mazda3 comes with full LED lighting. Corolla buyers can get LED taillights and LED daytime running lights, but they have to buy one of the more expensive upper trim levels.
Mazda3 owners will enjoy standard features such as remote keyless entry with push-button start and HD radio. To get these features on the Corolla, buyers must step up to one of the upper trims. A head-up display is another feature offered in the Mazda3 that you can’t get in the Corolla.
Both the Mazda3 and the Toyota Corolla are designed to provide outstanding crash protection. Both vehicles offer valuable accident-avoidance equipment such as automatic emergency braking. However, only the Mazda3 offers a driver-attention monitoring system and blind-spot monitoring.
The Last Word
While the 2019 Toyota Corolla is a good compact car, it just doesn’t rise to the level of performance and styling as the 2019 Mazda3. That’s why the Mazda3 wins this competition.
