The 2017 Mazda Mazda3 Hatchback and the 2017 Chevrolet Cruze Hatchback deliver sporty looks and performance, impressive efficiency, and the useful cargo space offered by a hatchback. So which one is better for your needs if you’re shopping for a car like this in the Calumet City area? Let’s take a closer look.

Performance and Efficiency

The 2017 Cruze earns up to 30 mpg city/40 mpg highway based on EPA estimates with six-speed automatic transmission and 1.4L turbocharged four-cylinder engine that makes 153 hp and 177 lb-ft of torque. The Cruze Diesel does even better with up to 30 mpg city/52 mpg highway based on EPA estimates with six-speed manual.

The Mazda 3 just can’t keep up with the Cruze. It rates at up to 28 mpg city/37 mpg highway in the most efficient configuration. This engine makes up to 155 hp and 150 lb-ft of torque.

Measurements and Dimensions

The Mazda 3 offers up to 47.1 cubic feet of luggage volume, while the Cruze gives you just a bit more at 47.2 cubic feet. The Cruze gives you more front headroom.

Technology and Connectivity

The Chevy Cruze gets the OnStar system with in-car 4G LTE connectivity and in-car WiFi for up to seven devices. That means everyone can stay connected on the road wherever you go. OnStar also provides automatic collision notification and enhanced roadside assistance. These features aren’t standard in the Mazda3.

Comfort and Convenience

The Cruze gives you an eight-way adjustable driver seat, while the Mazda3 comes with a six-way seat. The Chevy also gets heated mirrors, an automatic equalizer, a rear armrest, and a driver information center. None of those are standard in the Mazda.
