2017 Honda Civic Coupe vs 2017 Mazda3
Up until the two most recent prototypes to be revealed, the 2017 Civic Coupe was the sportiest vehicle on the 10th-generation Honda Civic lineup. Now that the whole family has been unveiled, we wanted to remind everyone of just how great the Coupe model is. We thought the best way to do this would be to pit it against one of its competitors, by comparing the 2017 Honda Civic Coupe vs 2017 Mazda3 and showcasing the differences between the two, as well as the advantages the Civic Coupe has.
Advantages of the 2017 Honda Civic Coupe
The table above showcases some of the most important aspects of sporty vehicles like these two, so we thought we’d start from the top and work our way down. But the first thing we noticed is just how comparable these two vehicles are to one another. One might think that something like the Toyota Corolla would be the Civic Coupe’s biggest rival, but the Mazda3 proves to be a worthy opponent.
Now, starting from the top row, we first looked at combined fuel efficiency, in which the Civic Coupe utilizes 0.4 litres less fuel every 100 kilometres. That’s not a huge advantage, but it is enough to save you some cast at the pump over time. One of the things that generally comes along with an advantage like that is a decrease in horsepower, but as you can see in the second row, the Civic Coupe offers 3 extra horsepower. On top of that, the Civic Coupe weighs 160 lbs. less than the Mazda3, stretching that 3 horsepower even further. Once again, 3 HP is not a mind-blowing leg up, but it is noteworthy.
Finally, in the last row, the Mazda3 fires back. But its advantage, this time in cargo capacity, is just as miniscule as the Civic Coupe’s advantages, as it offers 0.3 extra cubic feet of space in the trunk. If you can put up with the slight disadvantage and would prefer to have a few small advantages, then be sure to schedule a test drive in the 2017 Honda Civic Coupe right here on our website today.
