When buying a car, it can be tough to find the time to compare vehicles across brands, especially in a packed segment like the compact sedan market. That being said, many drivers shopping around in this segment will likely have the Ford Focus and Mazda3 somewhere on their list of vehicles to check out, so we thought we could help with that.
That’s why we’re here to compare some of the key features between the 2017 Ford Focus and 2017 Mazda3. Take a look at the chart above for a brief overview or read on below for more of the details. Either way, you should walk away having a pretty good idea of which model best suits your driving needs.
The first thing that may jump out at you from the chart above is the starting MSRP, with the Focus at a far less expensive price. Yet, for a lower cost, drivers will find certain features standard in the Focus that are not standard in the Mazda3, like an in-vehicle assistance service, a headlight washer and cargo tie-downs.
We also can’t ignore the fact that the Focus can provide far greater fuel efficiency than the Mazda3. The 2017 Mazda3 may provide some powerful engine choices, but for those who care about saving money on fuel and want to spend less time filling up at the pump, it may not be the right option.
