Civic v Corolla v Mazda 3 Consumer Comparison by Edmunds.com
As so many Hollywood blockbusters have proven, if something works once, why
not try it again? Last year, we decided to try something completely
different by inviting six regular consumers to do a comparison test of
three popular midsize sedans — without the sponsorship of a specific
manufacturer. They poked and prodded each car using the same criteria
Edmunds editors use when evaluating a vehicle. The result was an
enlightening experience for the consumers involved, the Edmunds.com editors
and, judging by feedback, the readers at home.
For the sequel, we rounded up three economy sedans: the two best-selling
models (Toyota Corolla and Honda Civic) and the one we consider to be the
best (Mazda 3). We also invited a fourth dark-horse contender to the party,
but the Mitsubishi Lancer that showed up featured a fancy stereo, a sunroof
and a $3,000-higher price tag. It was disqualified before the test started
for being too far out of the price range. As such, the remaining three
contenders were priced within $479 of each other, giving our testers the
chance to see how much equipment each brand provides for basically the same
amount of dough. Each car was also right off the boat (or train), with
miles in the low hundreds or less. In other words, nothing was given an
undue advantage. Here's a rundown of the cars.

Since 1976, when Volkswagen first presented the GTI, it became a cult to
challenge the sporty Golf. Its most tenacious rival is the Opel Astra. The
Mazda 3 is one of the younger challengers.
