Interior Styling of the Ford Focus versus Mazda3

The cabins of the Ford Focus and Mazda3 (in regard to the sedan body style) are fairly spacious and well appointed. You'll find some of the latest technological features, such as Bluetooth® streaming audio, hands-free calling, and advanced infotainment systems, but in terms of comfort, the Ford Focus is at a disadvantage.

The 2019 Mazda3 has 92.8 cubic feet of passenger volume, while the Ford Focus only has 90 cubic feet despite the fact that both vehicles have seating for up to five passengers. Not only that, but the second row of the Mazda3 offers more legroom for passengers than the Focus-35.1 inches vs. 33.2 inches, respectively. So, taller passengers riding in the back seat will have more space to stretch out in the Mazda3.

Performance Specifications

When it comes to performance, the 2019 Mazda3 and the Ford Focus are fairly similar. For instance, they both come standard with a 4-cylinder gasoline engine. They also both come standard with a manual transmission and offer an optional 6-speed automatic transmission to interested drivers. The power differences slightly, however. In the Mazda3, you'll generate an impressive 186 horsepower, while in the Focus, you'll only receive up to 160 horsepower.

There's also a difference in available torque when you look at the base engines of the Ford Focus and Mazda3. In the Focus, torque is limited to 146 lb-ft, but the Mazda3 produces 186 lb-ft of torque. After all, this can possibly make quite the difference since more torque can promote longer engine life.
