The Mazda3’s base engine is more powerful than the Sentra. The difference in power figures might be minimal but surely makes a lot of difference in the overall performance. But if that is not enough, Mazda also offers two additional powertrain options for the Mazda3, the most powerful of them being the turbocharged 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that produces up to 250 horsepower and 320 pounds of torque. With this kind of power output, it is crystal clear that the Mazda3 performs way better than the Sentra.
The Mazda3’s cabin carries an elevated level of elegance. This can be attributed to the attention to detail given to all the interior components. The Sentra does not come anywhere close to Mazda3’s perfection. High-quality materials have been used all over the Mazda3’s cabin. Base Mazda3 trims get cloth-upholstered seats. The higher trims come with leather upholstery as standard along with power-adjustable and heated front seats. The Mazda3 offers impressive space for all its occupants.
Coming to the infotainment system, Sentra’s system is not as refined as the Mazda3. The touchscreen display’s usability is not well rounded, and the interface is outdated compared to the Mazda3.
