2017 Honda Civic Hatchback vs 2017 Mazda3 Hatchback
A hatchback sedan makes for the ultimate choice for drivers who can’t decide between a small car or a larger sport utility vehicle. Hatchbacks offer more space, like an SUV, but still provide the benefits of smaller cars, like maneuverability and fuel efficiency. We thought we’d take a look at two of the most popular compact hatchbacks available on the market, by comparing the 2017 Honda Civic Hatchback vs 2017 Mazda3 Hatchback.
Advantages of the 2017 Honda Civic Hatchback
There are three aspects that are more important than most others when it comes to hatchback models like these two: fuel efficiency, power performance and space – both in terms of cargo and passengers. The table up above highlights each of these aspects, showing the different between the two models. We thought we’d start right at the top and work our way down, by first analyzing the two sedans’ combined fuel efficiency.
Without a doubt the closest category, the Civic Hatchback utilizes 0.6 fewer l/100km combined across the highway and city streets. That’s not a massive advantage, hence why it’s the closest category, but the Civic Hatchback will save you a bit of cash at the pump every time you stop. Even still, it also offers more power than the Mazda3 Hatchback. To be exact, 19 horsepower more. Once again, not a huge advantage, but 19 HP would definitely be noticeable to drivers interested in performance and power.
As for space, the Civic Hatchback kind of blows the Mazda3 Hatchback out of the water. It offers an extra 5.5 cubic feet of cargo capacity, and an extra 6.3 cu. ft. of space in the cabin for you and your passengers to stretch out and get comfortable in.
