2014 Mazda3 vs 2014 Chevy Sonic
Hatchbacks are known for their versatility and uncompromising performances. These vehicles are made to do it all and drivers expect nothing less. What happens when Ingram Park Mazda pins the 2014 Mazda3 against the 2014 Chevy Sonic?
The 2014 Chevy Sonic rose from the ashes of its much less appealing predecessor with a stronger performance and impressive additions to its interior technology. When the vehicle rocks its hatchback form, it utilizes a 1.8-liter ECOTEC four-cylinder engine to produce a 138-horsepower performance. Generating 125 pound-feet of torque and an Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)-estimated 35 mpg highway, the Sonic produces a quick drive that also offers a decent fuel economy. When the Sonic adopts its turbo engine, however, it can produce up to an EPA-estimated 40 mpg highway. The Sonic is a lively option in the hatchback segment, but are its updates strong enough to defeat the redesigned 2014 Mazda3?
2014 Mazda3 San Antonio, TX
Mazda took charge in the 2014 model year by launching revamped versions of its most popular cars. Changing up its bread-and-butter vehicle was a risk and we’re weighing in to decide if it was worthwhile.
It takes a lot to stand out in the compact segment, but when Mazda redesigned its staple Mazda3, the automaker rose to the top of the list. With a completely revitalized appearance and performance to match, the 2014 Mazda3 is more efficient, agile and fun than ever before. When drivers select the hatchback version, they are equipped with the 2.0-liter SKYACTIV-G gasoline engine, which produces an EPA-estimated 40 mpg highway and 155-horsepower performance. Drivers can also feel confident and connected with tech features like the Smart City Brake Support, Lane Departure Warning, Blind Spot Monitoring and new touchscreen display system. With more passenger space than the Sonic, drivers and their backseat travelers have more room to grow and explore. For the Ingram Park Mazda team, the Mazda3’s upgrades were certainly worth the risk.
