Lauded as one of the most impressive models of 2020, the Mazda3 has garnered success as both a sedan and a hatchback. But while both offer a sleek exterior, several changes were made to the 2021 Mazda3 options to provide the optimal experience.
Now armed with a turbocharged engine, the 2021 Mazda3 Hatchback is but one of few on the market to match looks and performance with a wide range of features. But when compared to the competition – such as the 2021 Toyota Corolla Hatchback – how does the model perform? Bob Baker Mazda provides a guide below on the two models:

2021 Toyota Corolla Hatchback
|20.1 cubic ft||Total Cargo Space||17.8 cubic ft|
|35.1 inches||Rear Leg Room||29.9 inches|
When comparing the 2021 Mazda3 Hatchback and the 2021 Toyota Corolla Hatchback, there are several key differences between the two. In terms of capabilities, the 2021 Mazda3 option offers a new SKYACTIV®-G 2.5-liter Turbocharged engine. While the standard offering over matches its competition, the enhanced Turbo trims receive up to 250 horsepower and 320 ft-lbs of torque (with premium unleaded). Another major plus comes in the total cargo and rear space. With up to 20.1 cubic feet of cargo space and over five more inches of legroom in the rear, you can effectively pack more cargo while offering a more comfortable space for rear passengers.
Beyond its powertrain and cargo space differences, the 2021 Mazda3 Hatchback also offers a high-tech interior. Unlike the 2021 Toyota Corolla hatchback, a Panoramic Sunroof is available at select trim levels and packages. An 8.8-inch Full-Color Display also rests in the center console, which can utilize Apple CarPlay™, Android Auto™, and Bluetooth® capabilities. Other features inside the model include the following technology:
