Compare the 2019 Mazda3 vs. 2019 Honda Civic

Though the Honda Civic has a decades-long reputation among compact sedan lovers, the 2019 Mazda3 shouldn’t be overlooked. For those looking for power, interior features, and cutting-edge safety technology, the Mazda3 ends up being an ideal candidate for West Columbia drivers. Below, we’ll break down the difference between these two vehicles in this 2019 Mazda3 vs. 2019 Honda Civic side-by-side comparison from Midlands Mazda.

Mazda3 vs. Honda Civic: Performance

Mazda3 or Honda Civic? When judging these two sedans by performance, the new Mazda3 has the upper hand. Equipped with a 186-hp Skyactiv®-G 2.5L 4-cylinder engine, the Mazda3 gives you the power you need to make other Irmo, South Carolina drivers jealous. Especially when those drivers are behind the wheel of a Honda Civic LX, which has a 158-hp 2.0L 4-cylinder engine. Even if you upgrade to the more expensive turbocharged engine available on higher trim levels, the Honda Civic only ekes out 174 hp.
