Choosing the right sedan is hard with how many options you have available, but we’ll simplify the task by comparing the reliable 2018 Mazda3 with one of its popular counterparts, the 2018 Ford Focus. Even after taking a peek at just a few key features from both sedans, it’s obvious that the 2018 Mazda3 gives you more value for your money in almost every department. If you don’t believe us, come take it for a test drive at Maita Automotive Group. When you see how it feels to cruise down Route 99 in the Mazda, there’s no turning back. Let us know if you have any questions in the contact form below.

Performance

There’s no doubt that the 2018 Mazda3’s powertrain will give you more confidence than that of its counterpart, the 2018 Ford Focus. The Mazda3’s SKYACTIV®-G1 2.0L DOHC 4-cylinder engine with VVT produces about the same amount of horsepower as the Ford, but you’ll have an improved torque output: 150 lb.-ft. versus 146 lb.-ft. This difference is subtle, but it’s a big deal when you’re trying to accelerate steadily. Even though you’ll get more torque in the 2018 Mazda3, it still manages to be more efficient than the Ford. The former gets a fuel economy of 27/37/31 MPG city/hwy/combined2, and the Ford only manages a rating of 25/34/28 MPG city/hwy/combined2. These slight differences add up to massive fuel savings in the long run in the 2018 Mazda3. To make the Mazda3’s case even better, it comes with a 6-speed automatic transmission with manual-shift and Sport mode, and the Ford’s 6-speed automatic transmission lacks this functionality.

Interior

The standard 2018 Mazda3’s cabin outclasses the interior of the 2018 Ford Focus in almost every way. Audio is a major factor to consider when planning any drive, and you’ll get to enjoy your favorite music more easily and with a wider range with the Mazda3’s AM/FM audio system with six speakers. Compare this to the Ford’s 4-speaker system, which one would you rather have? Also, the 2018 Ford Focus’ SYNC® system with a 4.2-inch LCD display doesn’t stand up well when compared to the MAZDA CONNECT™3 system and its 7-inch full-color touch screen display. Aside from that, there are so many other features in the Mazda3 that don’t even have an equivalent in the Ford Focus, like Push Button Start.

Safety

The 2018 Mazda3 takes safety one step further than the 2018 Ford Focus with its impressive SKYACTIV®-Body1 Ring Structure. This is designed to help protect you and your passengers if anyone ever crashes into you, and the 2018 Ford Focus’ features don’t quite live up to the Mazda3’s level of dependability.

Make time to come take this sedan for a test drive! It’s pretty clear that between the 2018 Mazda3 vs 2018 Ford Focus in Sacramento, CA, the latter came out on top. Stop by Maita Automotive Group when your schedule opens up!

Brian Butcher that works here is the best! He seriously helped me out figuring out what was needed, and also went beyond that (i was having a problem with the work done at Pep Boys off folsom blvd) let me know some Important information about parts that were missing on my cat. From Pep Boys! And the people/person that worked on my car did an exceptional job! I feel SO much better after getting it done here! This is the spot to take your car if you want it done right! I found out the hard way, but let's just say i was paid in full for the huge mess Pep Boys did! Oh, and I personally will NEVER go to Pep Boys. But Thank you so much Toyota for Everything! You all rock!

The sraff was wonderful....not pushy or annoying like some dealerships. Knowledgeable sales people...I may be buying a car from them but I am not sure since I am still doing research. I have had two Toyota vehicles in the past one was totalled and the other 1998 is still running great for my son who bought it from me.
