The 2017 Mazda3 versus the 2017 Honda Civic

  • A standard keyless ignition means Mazda3 drivers will get going faster, as the standard Civic still has to be started with a key.

  • An available head-up display projects pertinent driver information on the windshield to keep the driver informed and to reduce distraction. The Mazda3 rivals even luxury brands with this offering, while the Civic cannot come equipped with this technology.
  • The Mazda3 benefits from a more substantial standard audio system than that of the base Civic.
  • Only Mazda models have an available i-ELOOP brake energy regeneration system, which works to reduce fuel consumption. Needless to say, the Mazda3 can come equipped with this eco-minded features, while the Civic doesn't offer anything even remotely similar to it.
  • The standard Mazda3 setup produces more torque than the Civic for more eager acceleration.
  • The Mazda3's 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine upgrade is more powerful than that of the Civic.
  • The Mazda3 is taller than the Civic, making for more rear headroom, as well as more front hip room and shoulder room.
