Do you enjoy the cabin size and performance of a sedan but crave the cargo space of a small SUV? If so, you should look into getting a hatchback. These vehicles seamlessly blend together the favorite features of both sedans and SUVs. There aren’t many hatchback models in the market, but two popular options are the Mazda3 Hatchback and the Toyota Corolla Hatchback. Both models are based on sedan models that they share features with but also add an extra layer of excitement.
The 2021 Mazda3 Hatchback is available in six trim levels: 2.5 S Hatchback, Select, Preferred, Premium, 2.5 Turbo, and 2.5 Turbo Premium Plus. The 2021 Toyota Corolla Hatchback is available in three trim levels: Se, SE Nightshade Edition, and XSE. While there are several trim level options for both models, we will be focusing on their base trim levels. If you are curious to see how these two models stack up, keep reading for our 2021 Mazda3 Hatchback vs 2021 Toyota Corolla Hatchback comparison. We will be focusing on their starting MSRP, engine power, engine torque and cargo space.
Looking at the comparison table above, you can see that these two models provide impressive specifications and are rather close in some categories. However, only one model can be declared the winner of this comparison. Starting in the first row, we have their starting prices. Although both are affordable, the 2021 Corolla Hatchback earns a point with its lower price tag.
Moving on to the next two categories, we have their engine performance. In both power and torque, the 2021 Mazda3 Hatchback engine wins by about 18 horsepower and 35 lb-ft of torque. Finally, we have their cargo space dimensions. Both provide a decent amount of space, but the Mazda6 Hatchback comes out on top again with 20.1 cubic feet of cargo space, 1.3 cubic feet more than the Corolla Hatchback.
