2019 Honda Civic Hatchback vs 2019 Mazda3

With so many Honda Civic models out there, you might think it difficult to find competitors for each of them. That’s certainly not the case, however, as Honda made sure to build Civic models for some of the most competitive segments out there. Compact hatchback sedans have exploded over the past several years, inspired by the hot hatches that are popular in the European market. A great number of brands have put forth entries into this segment, from Ford and Chevy to Toyota and Honda, and several between them.

Today we thought we’d see how our compact Civic Hatchback measures up to one of those competitors, by pitting the 2019 Honda Civic Hatchback vs 2019 Mazda3. Its nameplate might not be nearly as long, but it certainly has a lot to offer, so let’s see how the fare against one another.

5.9 l/100km Highway Fuel Efficiency 6.7 l/100km

Advantages of the 2019 Civic Hatchback

The table above contains a lot of the most pertinent specifications to consider when shopping for a compact hatchback sedan (or, really, any vehicle), starting with fuel efficiency. The first row highlights the fact that the Civic Hatchback utilizes a whole 1.4 litres less fuel to travel the same 100 kilometres throughout the city. That’s a pretty sizable difference that’s sure to translate to quite a bit of savings if you do a lot of urban driving. The highway difference isn’t quite as large, but 0.8 l/100km is nothing to sneeze at either.

The Mazda3 does have something to offer, however, as it’s capable of generating an extra 12 horsepower. Similarly, this isn’t a massive difference, but it would likely be noticeable in a side-by-side road comparison. So, that’s a point to the Mazda3. Unfortunately, that one point can’t compete with the two points the Civic Hatchback already has, let alone the extra 5.6 cubic feet of cargo space highlighted in the final row. In a hatchback, nothing is quite as important as cargo capacity, so this is a huge advantage.
