Key Differences between the Mazda3 and Toyota Corolla 

The first difference we want to mention is the starting price point. The Mazda3 comes in lower than the Corolla and houses more standard features and a larger standard engine. This means that even at a lower price, you're getting more value for your dollar. Smart shoppers that want to make sure that they get what they pay for should look to the Mazda3 over the Corolla.  

Speaking of engine size, this brings us to our next point: the Mazda3 not only gives you a larger standard engine but offers an upgraded engine as well for even more power. On the other hand, the Corolla only gives drivers access to a 1.8-liter engine, which can't rival the 2018 Mazda3's performance prowess.  

Both models will accommodate five passengers and are similarly sized. However, they differ greatly in the trim level department. While the Corolla will give drivers more trim levels from which to choose, the Mazda3 gives drivers more standard features in each trim, making this model the better choice in the way of amenities and technologies.
