By now, we all know that the 2019 Mazda3 is a highly-acclaimed vehicle. The fully redesigned machine boasts a five-star rating from top automotive reviewers Edmunds, and is currently judged to be the #1 compact car by top review-aggregator U.S. News. With all this, it’s hard not to get the message- the vehicle is a blast to drive, comfortable to inhabit, outfitted hood-to-bumper with sleek technology, and exuding a nigh-irresistible aura of elegance and refinement.
If you’re thinking about purchasing the 2019 Mazda3 (and why wouldn’t you be?) you may be wondering about the differences between its two configurations- sedan and hatchback. Let’s take a look at how they compare.
2019 Mazda3 Sedan
2019 Mazda3 Hatchback
|Up to 27 city / 36 highway||Fuel Economy||Up to 26 city / 35 highway|
|184” L x 71” W x 57” H||Dimensions||176” L x 71” W x 57” H|
|13.2 cubic feet||Cargo Volume||20.1 cubic feet|
|186 hp||Horsepower||186 hp|
The hatchback really flourishes in terms of its cargo space, and despite this it’s also a full eight inches shorter than the sedan, making it theoretically more maneuverable. The hatchback iteration boasts impressive utility, but it is more expensive. A preference for appearance styling can also enter into the decision between the two.
