Sedan shoppers who are looking for a compact value with a healthy balance of power, features, and technology have historically turned to vehicles like the Ford Focus. As you can see in our 2019 Mazda3 vs 2018 Ford Focus comparative chart above, the winds of change are blowing; and they’re pushing sedan shoppers away from the Focus and towards the Mazda3.

All-new for the 2019 production year, the Mazda3 comes fully-loaded with a host of standard and available features that the 2018 Focus simply can’t match. On its exterior, for instance, every 2019 Mazda3 receives standard LED headlights and taillights. Those who want LED exterior lighting on their Ford Focus will need to pay more for a higher trim level.

Key Differences – 2019 Mazda3 vs 2018 Focus

Also available to higher trim levels—and nowhere to be found on the base model—Ford Focus shoppers are likely to opt for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Mazda3 consumers, meanwhile, can enjoy these systems as soon as the base model, as made possible by the Mazda3 Select package.

Standard in both vehicles, however, everyone can enjoy a touchscreen interface! Although, those who choose the 2019 Mazda3 will receive a standard display that’s more than double the size of the one found in the Ford Focus, as highlighted in our comparison chart above.

Last but not least, the 2019 Mazda3 also has much higher power ratings than the 2018 Ford Focus. While the Mazda3 can achieve up to 186 horsepower and 186 pound-feet of torque, the Focus can only produce 160 horsepower and 146 pound-feet of torque. Simply put, the drivetrain of the 2019 Mazda3 delivers a top-tier experience every single time.
