Under the hood, there is no comparison. The Elantra just doesn’t match up to even the base3 specs on the Mazda3, and with the available 2.5-liter turbo, the Mazda3 is set to leave the Elantra and many others simply in the dust. What’s more, the Mazda3 takes a surprising turn and offers all-wheel drive as an available feature. If you thought you had to get a crossover or an SUV to get AWD, then think again.
In terms of overall style, the Mazda3 has a lot of beauty. If you’ve never driven a modern Mazda before, you will learn to love the style both inside and out. What’s more, Mazda puts that style to work on not one but two different body styles for the Mazda3 with both a sedan and a hatchback. The Elantra used to be offered as a hatchback as well, but these days it is only available as a sedan.
Lastly, the Mazda3 just offers more standard features with adaptive cruise control being a big one. If you want help going through all the available features and trim levels for the 2021 Mazda3, then let Sheehy Mazda assist you. You can get started with the form on this page.
