In what ways did we compare the Mazda3 and the Chevy Cruze?

Timeless Design

Both models actually offer two body style, a four-door sedan style with a trunk that is separate from the cabin and a five-door hatchback style where it's all connected. With both styles, the Mazda3 has a clear advantage over the Chevy Cruze in the amount of shoulder room for both rows, which is important in these small cars so that passengers don't feel cramped.

Safety Features

The safety features and awards of the Mazda3 is where its value really starts to shine through for Valparaiso car shoppers. It comes standard with great features like Smart City Brake Support and offers others like an Adaptive Front Lighting System, neither of which is true of the Chevy Cruze. Due to features like these and other safety aspects, the IIHS gave the 2018 Mazda3 a 2018 Top Safety Pick award, which the Chevy Cruze did not earn.

Technology and Comfort

The standard features of the Mazda3 are what separates it from the Chevy Cruze in terms of value because even the base model Mazda3 comes with a 7-inch touchscreen and infotainment system that Hammond, IN drivers won't find in any Cruze model. With music apps and available navigation, this system lets you more easily find your way and pick the tune that completes your ride, which is just another way the Mazda3 makes driving fun again.
