The Mazda3: Better Looks, Better Features

The Honda Civic is a very popular pick nowadays, but popularity alone can’t stand up to the great design or power of the Mazda3. Here’s how the two models match up.

The 2013 Mazda3 sedan iSport is equipped with a SKYACTIV 2.0L 4-cylinder engine with an impressive power output of 155 hp and 148 lb-ft of torque. Thanks to Mazda’s expert engineering, the SKYACTIV engine is able to deliver this excellent power while maintaining a fuel economy estimated at a combined 31 mpg.

The Honda Civic sedan may offer a similar estimated fuel economy, but it without a doubt sacrifices power to achieve the same result. The Civic manages a lower power rating of 140 hp and 128 lb-ft of torque; drivers who have taken both vehicles out for a spin usually notice that the Mazda3 has much better get-up than the Civic.

As for features, The Civic LX also lacks many cool gadgets that are available to Mazda3 iSport drivers:

  • An interior day/night mirror
  • Cargo area tie-downs
  • Fog lights
  • A load-bearing exterior rack
