2014 Mazda 3 vs 2014 Honda Civic

2014 Honda Civc vs Mazda3

You’re after a compact car that’s got the whole package –  great fuel economy, impressive power, and a price you feel comfortable with. There are a number of great models to choose from and just about every major automaker throws one into the hat for your consideration. Two that tend to stand out in many shoppers’ minds, and that you may just now be starting to weigh the pros and cons between, is the 2014 Mazda3 vs the 2014 Honda Civic.

What makes this an exciting match-up on some level is that the Honda Civic is one of the most well-known and trusted nameplates on the road, while the Mazda3 is the up-and-comer with something to prove. How do the two stack up against one another? The first thing to look at, of course, is price. The starting MSRP for the base model of these compact car options is not what we’d call equal with the 2014 Mazda3 MSRP coming in quite a bit lower than that of the Civic. So how do the two compare on other fronts? Are there key aspects that make the Civic worth more?

With noticeable better fuel economy in both city and especially highway conditions, and an engine that outperforms by over ten horsepower, the Mazda3 shows the competitive benefit of Mazda’s groundbreaking Skyactiv Technology at work. As another added bonus when it comes to buying the Mazda3 over the Honda Civic, where most aspects of the two warranties are the same in terms of duration of coverage, Mazda throws in three years or up to 36,000 miles of Roadside Assistance coverage as well to help keep you confident on the road.
