2016 Honda Civic vs. 2016 Mazda3
Billings and Laurel drivers looking to purchase a new sedan will inevitably come across some of the top performers in the class, like the 2016 Honda Civic and the 2016 Mazda3. While both vehicles have their perks, it’s important to break down what really makes the difference in these two options.
Impressive Power in a Sedan
Honda engineers took have improved upon the design of previous Honda Civic models and packed a lot of power into the current model. The 2016 Honda Civic can be equipped with a 158-hp 2.0L 4-cylinder engine or a 174-hp 1.5L 4-cylinder model. With the 1.5L engine, the 2016 Civic can achieve 31 mpg city/42 mpg highway,* making it an attractive option to the environmentally conscious driver.
The Mazda3 also sports two 4-cylinder engine options. While power is comparable, efficiency tops out at 29 mpg city/40 mpg highway — strong numbers, but not as strong as the Civic’s.
The 2016 Honda Civic has already been praised for its comfort features as well as its innovative design. The 2016 Honda Civic features a convenient infotainment display that puts useful diagnostic information front and center. With Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay®, you can even sync popular apps and entertainment from your smartphone right to the display.
The Mazda3 also features an infotainment display in its dash, but does not let you easily sync your entertainment through the popular Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ systems. Once again, the 2016 Honda Civic reigns supreme over the Mazda3 in this area.
