2017 Mazda3 vs 2017 Chevy Cruze

Getting a quality car at a great price might not be as easy as you’d like to think.

Two comparable models in the Mazda3 and Cruze are viable options for car shoppers seeking interior features and performance that’s a step above. See our comparison between the 2017 Mazda3 vs 2017 Chevy Cruze.

It’s worth noting that the Cruze gets a little better fuel efficiency than the Mazda3, but the latter has some ammunition in its arsenal. The interior dimensions may be more comfortable in the Mazda3, as it has more headroom, shoulder room, hip room and front leg room than its rival. See how else these two match up in the table below.

Driving is made better in the Mazda3. How so? Mazda has developed a technology that is unlike anything offered by other automakers. After eight years of trial and error with endless hours of research, they have perfected SKYACTIV-VEHICLE DYNAMICS with G-Vectoring Control to help ensure your ride is a smooth and seamless as possible. The system works by adjusting weight toward the front wheels and reducing engine torque when you turn corners, reducing the weary and carsick feeling you might get after going through a lot of twists and turns. Using the ancient Japanese philosophy of Jinba Ittai, or horse and rider as one, Mazda has found a way to make drivers one with their car. Other automakers can’t quite match up to that.

The verdict is in, so now it’s your turn to decide if the Mazda3 is going to be your next vehicle. Get in touch with the team here at Hall Cars to learn more or to see our inventory of new and used Mazda3s!
