2020 MAZDA3 Sedan vs 2020 MAZDA3 Hatchback

Serving Farmington Hills, MI

Are you trying to decide between the 2020 Mazda3 Sedan and the 2020 Mazda3 Hatchback? These are both popular models of compact cars that share numerous similarities. They entered the fourth generation in the 2019 model year, and the styling, features, and other elements were improved at that time. They also carry a few minor updates that are new for the 2020 model year. While they are similar in many ways, you should be aware of their differences before deciding which new car to head home in.


The 2020 Mazda3 Sedan is offered in four trims, and the Mazda3 Hatchback is available in three trims. Across all seven of these trims, you will find one powertrain. This is a 2.5-liter, 4-cylinder Skyactiv®-G gas engine. With this engine, you can benefit from 187 horsepower. These two vehicles also come with G-Vectoring Control Plus, all-wheel or front-wheel drive, anti-locking brakes, 6-speed electronically-controlled auto transmission, and other mechanical equipment. An easy way to experience how well these two models perform is to visit Suburban Mazda of Farmington Hills at your earliest convenience.


The most significant difference between the 2020 Mazda3 Sedan and the 2020 Mazda3 Hatchback is found in their styling. The Mazda3 Sedan is a 4-door vehicle with a swooping, sculpted hood that cascades elegantly into the signature Mazda grille with mesh backing. The lower portion of this grille is accentuated with a chrome bar, and this bar rolls into the angled headlights with a stunning effect. Contouring undulates from the headlights and across the sides to the rear wheel fenders. The roof slopes quickly to the trunk area to continue the sporty look. The 2020 Mazda3 Hatchback is a 5-door vehicle with a similar front end, as you will find in the Mazda3 Sedan. The side contouring follows the same flow pattern, but it is smoothed out and lacks defined edges. The roofline is also unique and has a fastback-like style. It trends directly to the rear, so the vehicle requires a separate trunk area.


The interior of these two vehicles is relatively similar on a trim-by-trim basis. The passenger seating dimensions are comparable, and the only significant spatial difference is in the cargo area in the rear. Some of the equipment that is found across both vehicles depending on the trim that you take home are USB audio ports, heated and powered front seats, a leather steering wheel with mounted controls and paddle shifters, a push-button ignition, an advanced keyless entry system, Mazda Connect infotainment technology, automatic multi-zone climate control system, a Bose audio system with 12 speakers, speed-sensing power door locks and other equipment.

Suburban Mazda of Farmington Hills carries a large selection of current models for you to explore in detail when you stop by for a test drive. Your visit provides a convenient opportunity to admire the styling of these vehicles in person and to take your preferred trims out for a road test.
