2018 Mazda6 vs. 2019 Toyota Corolla

In the market for a sedan? Sarasota drivers often gravitate toward either the 2018 Mazda6 or the 2019 Toyota Corolla, but the two are very different. In fact, the Mazda6:

  • Churns out 55 more hp and 58 more lb-ft of torque from its standard engine
  • Holds 3.2 more gallons of gas in its fuel tank
  • Offers more features from the start of the lineup
  • Provides a greater total passenger volume and cargo capacity


From the get-go, the 2018 Mazda6 outperforms the 2019 Toyota Corolla, which means drives around Tampa would be that much more thrilling.

  • 2018 Mazda6: The standard SKYACTIV®-G 2.5L inline-four engine produces 187 hp and 186 lb-ft of torque. There’s also a turbocharged 2.5L powertrain rated at 250 hp and 310 lb-ft of torque.
  • 2019 Toyota Corolla: The introductory 1.8L four-cylinder engine musters just 132 hp and 128 lb-ft of torque. There are no other engine options.

What’s more, the Mazda6 comes with equipment meant to enhance control. For example, SKYACTIV®-VEHICLE DYNAMICS with G-Vectoring Control adjusts power delivery for smooth turns and improved handling. The Corolla doesn’t offer such a system.
