Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Toyota Camry Hybrid than the Mazda Mazda3, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Mazda Mazda3 and the Toyota Camry Hybrid in the front seats.

Convenience
With the Toyota Camry Hybrid you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Mazda Mazda3, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). When looking only at MSRP, the Mazda Mazda3 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Toyota Camry Hybrid. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Mazda Mazda3 and the Toyota Camry Hybrid have similar Destination Charges.

Since the Mazda Mazda3 is much slimmer than the Toyota Camry Hybrid, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Mazda Mazda3, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Toyota Camry Hybrid.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Mazda Mazda3 transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Toyota Camry Hybrid.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Mazda Mazda3 and the Toyota Camry Hybrid. The Mazda Mazda3 has less cargo capacity than the Toyota Camry Hybrid, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.
