Drivers looking for a compact car capable of the power they want and the features they need have few options that can beat the 2016 Mazda3, now available to South Bradenton and Memphis drivers at Cox Mazda. To demonstrate the superiority of the popular compact, we’ve prepared a comparison of the Mazda and another competitor in its segment, the 2016 Honda Fit. Read on to see how the 2016 Mazda3’s generous offering speaks for itself.


The 2016 Mazda3 offers a long list of standard and optional safety features that make it a superior choice over the 2016 Honda Fit:

  • 2016 Mazda3 The 2016 Mazda3 can offer Smart City Brake Support that makes use of forward mounted sensors to alert drivers of potential collisions. If the driver fails to act, the system can apply the brakes full force to prevent an accident. The 2016 Mazda3 can also be equipped with a Lane Departure Warning system, Rear Cross-Path Warning system and E911 system that can alert emergency services in the event of wreck that involves airbag deployment.
  • 2016 Honda Fit The Honda Fit doesn’t offer a Collision Warning System to alert to potential accidents or a Crash Mitigating Braking system. The Fit cannot be equipped with a Lane Departure Warning System either and does not offer an emergency system that calls for help in the event of a collision, leaving you on your own in the event of a crash.


The 2016 Mazda3 delivers more power and better performance than the Honda Fit:

  • 2016 Mazda3 The 2016 Mazda3 is equipped with a standard 2.0L DOHC 4-cylinder engine that produces 155 hp and 150 lb-ft of peak torque, while the optional 2.5L DOHC 4-cylinder motor produces 184 hp and 185 lb-ft of torque. When equipped with the manual transmission, this powerplant delivers an EPA-estimated 29 mpg city/40 mpg highway fuel economy.
  • 2016 Honda Fit The Honda Fit is powered by a 1.5L DOHC engine that creates just 130 hp and 114 lb-ft of torque. When mated to the manual powerplant, this Fit engine can only deliver 29 mpg city/37 mpg highway fuel economy.


When it comes to features, the 2016 Mazda3 easily outperforms the Honda Fit:

  • 2016 Mazda3 The 2016 Mazda3 can be equipped with a standard heads-up display, which allows drivers to see pertinent information like speed and direction without looking away from the road. It can also be equipped with features like optional radar cruise control to help keep a more consistent following distance, as well as dual zone air conditioning and an optional temperature control to help maintain a comfortable interior environment.
  • 2016 Honda Fit The Honda Fit doesn’t offer a heads up display, so if drivers need information about speed and direction, they’ll need to look down at the gauges, taking their attention off the road. The Fit also doesn’t offer radar cruise control or automatic environmental controls, leaving drivers to fuss with controls instead of keeping their attention on the road.
