2015 Mazda3 vs. 2015 Toyota Corolla
Drivers in the Chicagoland area certainly know a thing or two about darting through traffic, and now, for 2015, Continental Motors is offering two outstanding models that are more than up to the task. The 2015 Mazda3 and the 2015 Toyota Corolla offer two bold styles and inarguable resumes that place them among the finest compact sedans on the road today and, in a class that has become increasingly competitive, this is no faint praise.
In what has become an encouraging trend for the segment, each model leans heavily on bold, eye-catching styling inside and out. However, due to the drastically different approaches taken by the two models, the different-strokes-for-different-folks principle holds something special for everyone. While the 2015 Mazda3 uses more rear-sweeping, curvaceous touches, the 2015 Toyota Corolla chooses a more muscular, confident posture. Regardless of which style appeals to a particular driver, one of these models is bound to get your heart racing.

Different approaches in the 2015 Mazda3 and 2015 Toyota Corolla
Although each vehicle offers two distinct powertrain options, they achieve different ends for Chicago-area drivers. Under the hood of the 2015 Mazda3, drivers are offered a SKYACTIV-G 2.0L four-cylinder engine capable of an incredible 41 highway mpg while delivering an energetic 155 horsepower. However, Mazda now also offers a 184-hp SKYACTIV-G 2.5L four-cylinder engine that maintains 39 highway mpg while greatly improving overall speed and agility. And, by featuring both a hatchback and sedan body style, the Mazda3 offers options to appeal to a wide variety of drivers.
Not to be outdone, the 2015 Toyota Corolla comes to play as well. Standard on the Corolla is a 1.8L four-cylinder engine that sets the pace with 132 horsepower, but now available as an upgrade is the 1.8L Eco, which boosts horsepower to 140 while knocking a full second off the vehicle’s zero-to-sixty time. Those who extol the virtues of the Corolla’s legacy of terrific fuel economy won’t be disappointed either, as ratings as high as 42 mpg on the highway are expected.
Both of these terrific vehicles can now be found at the Continental Motors family of dealerships; test drive yours today!
