Differences between the 2017 Mazda3 and 2017 Toyota Corolla iM

One of the main differences between the 2017 Mazda3 and Toyota Corolla iM is power. A little goes a long way in these lightweight cars, but the Mazda3 has the advantage with its available 2.5L I-4 engine, which increases your horsepower to 184. The Corolla iM is only available with a 1.8L I-4 engine that outputs 137 horsepower. It’s not just about the power, though, but the 2017 Mazda3 is well-known for the sporty driving experience it gives drivers, especially not that G-Vectoring control is an added feature on all 2017 Mazda3 models.

A very important aspect of cars these days is the interior. People want something that is comfortable, stylish and offers plenty of tech features. The 2017 Corolla iM comes in only one trim and doesn’t offer the ability to upgrade from its standard cloth seats. On the other hand, the 2017 Mazda3 gives you more control on deciding what you all want to be included in your interior, which means the ability to upgrade to leatherette or full leather.
