Performance and Efficiency

On an intellectual and financial level you want high fuel economy, but your heart might ask for more horsepower. Luckily, you don’t have to compromise.

The 2016 Honda Civic gets a 2.0L four-cylinder, and with continuously variable transmission, the Civic earns an EPA estimate of 31 mpg city/41 mpg highway/35 mpg combined*. It puts out 158 hp and 138 lb-ft of torque. The available 1.5L turbocharged four-cylinder yields an even better 31 mpg city/42 mpg highway/35 mpg combined and offers up to 174 hp and 162 lb-ft of torque.

The 2016 Mazda3 does make a solid amount of power at 155 hp and 150 lb-ft of torque, but it only offers a 30 mpg city/41 mpg highway/34 mpg combined estimate with its 2.0L four-cylinder engine, according to EPA estimates.

You can see that the Honda Civic lets you have both more power and more miles per gallon than the Mazda3.

Passenger and Cargo Volume

When it comes to interior space, you’ve also got a clear winner. The 2016 Honda Civic simply offers more cabin and cargo space with 97.8 cubic feet of passenger space in the cabin and 15.1 cubic feet of cargo space in the trunk. The 2016 Mazda3 cabin only offers 96.3 cubic feet of passenger volume, and you only get 12.4 cubic feet of trunk space.
