How does the Honda Civic Sedan compare to the Mazda3?

The first thing we would like to point out is a difference in fuel economy. Honda engine and transmission technology works hard to put power to the road as efficiently as possible. According to EPA estimates, the 2017 Honda Civic Sedan provides greater fuel economy than the Mazda3 even at the Touring trim level.*

When it comes to navigation, Honda includes it standard at the Touring level. For the Mazda3 this feature is locked behind a special package, which you will have to pay extra for. The Civic Sedan also provides more room in the trunk with over 2 cubic-feet of extra cargo room making it very friendly for grocery shopping, moving, or even road trips.

We bring up rear legroom, because these are still four-door cars despite their compact size. Since you are considering a sedan, chances are you are going to want to transport more than two people from time to time, and that’s where the extra legroom of the Honda Civic Sedan will come in handy.
