Mazda3 Vs Hyundai Elantra

The 2012 Mazda3 vs. the Hyundai Elantra

The exciting new Mazda3 for Tampa, FL drivers is incredibly fuel efficient and fun to drive. At Cox Mazda we have an excellent selection of these great 4-door compacts for you to choose from. One of the best cars in its class, you get exceptional performance at a price that can’t be beat. Take a look at how it compares to the Hyundai Elantra.

Efficient Performance at the Right Price

From its aggressive, athletic design, to its surprising power and nimble handling, this sporty economy car has it all. Powered by a 16-valve 2.0L 4-cylinder engine, the Mazda3 cranks out 135 lb-ft of torque, well over the Elantra’s 131 lb-ft.

A 5-speed manual transmission is standard, although an Adaptive Automatic Transmission is an available option. The variable assisted steering provides the quick, responsive handling you need to meet any challenge the road has to offer.

The spacious and comfortable interior is loaded with convenience features including a telescopic tilt steering wheel, with steering wheel-mounted controls, second row folding seats, air conditioning, and a pollen/particle/dust air filter. There is also an optional navigation aid, which isn’t available on the Hyundai.

A 2012 Top Safety Pick be the IIHS, this new compact 4-door comes with all of the latest in advanced safety features, such as side-guard door beams, child safety locks, seat belt pretensioner, and a full array of airbags.

All this at an MSRP that comes in at $750 less than the Elantra, and it’s easy to see which vehicle is the better overall value.
