Differences Between the 2017 Mazda3 and 2017 Civic
One of the things that has always set Mazda apart from other auto manufacturers is the driving experience. Mazda has always taken great pride in delivering an enjoyable experience for those who enjoy driving, and the 2017 Mazda3 is no different thanks in part to its standard 155-horsepower engine pumping out 150 lb-ft of torque, which can be paired to either a manual or automatic transmission. The 2017 Civic’s standard power plant does deliver 3 more horsepower, but it falls far behind when comparing torque output.
Perhaps most importantly for some car buyers is the fact that the Mazda3 is a great value. Different drivers may have different ideas about what is considered a great value, but the Mazda3 not only has a lower starting MSRP than the 2017 Civic, it also comes standard with features the the Civic does not.
