Fuel Economy

Both the Mazda3 and the Corolla come with good fuel economy rates, but the Mazda3 has the advantage when it comes to highway gas mileage. The standard 2.0-liter inline four-cylinder engine in the Mazda3 gets an impressive 38 mpg on the highway, which makes this car better for those who drive long distances.* The 1.8-liter Toyota Corolla engine gets 36 mpg on the highway, falling short of the efficiency of the Mazda3.


The standard Mazda3 engine also has significantly more power than the standard Corolla. Not only does the Mazda3 get better gas mileage, this model also produces 155 horsepower with the 2.0-liter four-cylinder base engine. The Corolla base engine only makes 132 horsepower. Select the Mazda3 if you're looking for better performance in a more attractive vehicle design.


One of the major reasons to consider buying a compact car is the affordability. The starting MSRP of the Mazda3 is just $18,095**, but you'll spend at least $500 more on the Toyota Corolla for comparable features. For those looking for the best deals, the Mazda3 will often save you the most money.

For an efficient, powerful sedan packed with must-have features, the 2019 Mazda3 excels where the Toyota Corolla falls short. Visit Hiley Mazda of Fort Worth to learn more.
