While there are plenty of exciting Honda Civic models to choose from, the traditional Civic Sedan is still probably our most popular. The 4-door compact sedan offers everything a standard driver could need: decent power, affordable fuel efficiency and plenty of space. So we thought we’d see how our favorite 4-door sedan measures up to one of its competitors by comparing the 2017 Honda Civic Sedan vs 2017 Mazda3.
Advantages of the 2017 Honda Civic Sedan
The table up above depicts four different important aspects of vehicles like these, and we’re going to work our way through the table to give you a better idea of how similar or different the two vehicles are. The first row looks at combined fuel efficiency, which means the average litres of gasoline it takes to drive 100 kilometres on either the highway or through city streets. In this regard, the Honda Civic Sedan has an advantage, utilizing 0.6 l/100km less fuel. While that isn’t a huge advantage, you will save a bit of money in the long run.
In terms of power, however, the two vehicles are nearly identical. Technically, the Civic Sedan does have an advantage in the form of 3 horsepower, but those three horses would hardly be noticeable if you get right down to it. But when it comes to space, the Civic Sedan is clearly superior. The Civic Sedan’s trunk offers an extra 2.7 cubic feet of space, while the cabin offers an extra 4.2 cu. ft. So not only can you fit an extra suitcase or a few more bags of groceries, but you and your passengers will also have plenty of room to stretch out and get comfortable.
