Honda Civic vs Toyota Corolla vs VW Jetta vs Mazda Mazda3: A Rivalry in Duluth as Old as the Sedan Itself

The compact sedan is a staple of the auto industry. Icons in their own right, these pint-sized performers have a hard job: do it all, and look great doing it, but don't cost too much. It can be a really hard line to toe--balancing power with efficiency and comfort with price--and many automakers have to compromise one thing to get another. But, for Duluth drivers who want the best possible combination of quality and cost, there are fou8rpopular options that always stand out: the Toyota Corolla, VW Jetta, Mazda Mazda3 and the Honda Civic.

Not only are they some of the most popular cars in the area, but also, these three mighty models have been leading the pack since the very beginning. Since the old days of box-shaped and long-nosed four-doors, the three icons have been fierce rivals. The competition continues for the new 2019 model-year, and choosing which sedan is going to be right for you could be more challenging than you think.
