The 2013 Mazda3 5-Door vs. The 2013 Hyundai Elantra GT

If you are in the Tampa area and are shopping for an affordable compact hatchback, Cox Mazda in Bradenton is your destination. We have the affordable and well-equipped Mazda3 5-Door in stock now, and it’s time you come down and check out one of the best family vehicles on the market. Sure, there are some other appealing hatchback models available in 2013, including the Hyundai Elantra GT, but when you look at all the facts, Mazda’s model is the clear choice. See for yourself!

The Match Up

  • Powertrain: The 2013 Mazda3 gives you plenty of power for your dollar. With a turbocharged 2.3L inline four-cylinder engine that cranks out 263 hp and 280 lb-ft of torque, Mazda’s compact hatchback is as enjoyable to drive as it is affordable. The Elantra GT’s 1.8L inline four-cylinder engine has no turbocharged option and only generates 148 hp and 131 lb-ft of torque. The Mazda3 also comes standard with a limited slip differential for superior cornering, which is not offered on the GT.
  • Interior Features: Both compact hatchback vehicles come standard with some of the most desirable high-tech features, including a trip computer, power windows and locks, Bluetooth, and cruise control. However, the Mazda3 also comes standard with automatic climate control with separate controls for both the driver and passenger. This feature is available as an option on the Elantra GT for an added fee.
  • Exterior Features: Both models also come standard with exterior features such as fog lights, power mirrors, and rear windshield wipers, but with the Mazda3 you also get signaling exterior mirrors, which are optional on the Elantra GT. High intensity discharge headlights, a bumper step up, and rain sensing wipers are available as an option on the Mazda but not on the Hyundai model.
