There are lots of perks to the Mazda3, whether you are considering the sedan or the hatchback. They both feature advanced features and impressive performance. However, there are also distinct differences between the two. We’re looking at the Mazda3 sedan vs. hatchback at Berkshire Mazda.
The Vehicle Shape
Right off the bat, you can clearly see the difference between the look of these vehicles. The Mazda3 sedan is a four-door compact car. It has a sleek silhouette and a defined passenger space and separate trunk.
The Mazda3 hatchback, on the other hand, has the passenger space and cargo area combined. Due to its hatchback style, it looks slightly larger and more like a crossover.
The Cargo Space
Each vehicle has different cargo spaces due to their body styles. That also means they have a different amount of passenger space available too.
- Mazda3 sedan – has up to 13.2 cubic feet of cargo space in its separate trunk.
- Mazda3 hatchback – provides up to 20.1 cubic feet of cargo space. You can also fold the rear seat flat, giving you an ample 47.1 cubic feet of cargo space in all.
The Perks of Each
The Mazda3 hatchback has a tailgate that lifts upward, giving you easy access to the cargo area. Since you can also fold the rear seat down, it’s more spacious than the sedan and ideal when you have large or unusually shaped cargo.
The sedan has a separate trunk, which means you can keep your cargo separate from your passenger area. That can also help it feel more secure since a trunk’s cargo is hidden. Plus, its smaller size helps make it more fuel-efficient than the hatchback.
