The Subaru Crosstrek VS The Mazda3 Hatchback

A little bit of research can go a long way to helping Plymouth drivers decide which vehicle they way to drive home in without having to go test drive every model they have in mind. We have compared the Mazda3 Hatchback to the Subaru Crosstrek to easily help you discover why so many Hyannis drivers choose the Crosstrek as their next SUV.

Powertrain & Performance:

Cape Cod drivers want to get behind the wheel of a vehicle that is fun to drive, good on gas, and ready for whatever life throws their way. While the Mazda3 does offer slightly more horsepower, it is not nearly as fuel-efficient or equipped for adventure. All-wheel-drive on the Mazda3 will cost you an extra $1,400, deliver less capable performance, and reduce your fuel economy to 24 city and 32 highway. Meanwhile, the standard Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive is ready for heavy winter storms, off-road adventure, and effortless Sunday driving with 27 city / 33 highway mpg. 

Interior Comfort & Utility:

While you will be behind the wheel of your new vehicle you want all of your passengers to be comfortable in the front and back. The Subaru Crosstrek offers Bourne drivers most spacious seating for five, more maximum cargo room, and impressive utility for whatever your adventure calls for. The Mazda3 only has 92.7 cubic feet of passenger space with 35.1 inches of rear legroom and 47.1 cubic feet of total cargo space with the seats laid down. The Crosstrek has a passenger volume of 100.9 cubic feet, a maximum cargo space of 55.3 cubic feet, and 36.5 inches of rear legroom.

Another feature that makes the Crosstrek more appealing is standard roof rails to easily attach cargo boxes and roof accessories. The Mazda3 doesn't offer roof rails and you will need to have them installed. The Crosstrek is also capable of towing up to 1,500 lbs. It is strongly recommended that you don't tow anything with the Mazda3.

Safety Features:

Drivers from Barnstable to New Bedford want to get behind the wheel of a vehicle that is safe and reliable. Look no further than the Subaru Crosstrek is a long list of safety awards and the highest possible crash test ratings. The Crosstrek also offers Subaru EyeSight Driver Assist Technology on every model. While similar safety features on the Mazda3 are not available on the base model, forcing you to get a more expensive trim level. The Mazda3 also doesn't offer nearly as many safety features as the Crosstrek. Like LED Steering Responsive Headlights, Reverse Automatic Braking, Stolen Vehicle Recovery, and Pre-Collision Throttle Management as part of EyeSight.
