Mazda3 Sedan Overview | Mazda3 Hatch Overview | Mazda3 Safety Features


The 2019 Mazda3 Sedan and the 2019 Honda Civic have a lot in common — for instance, both are compact sedans and both are made by Japanese companies. It can be hard to pick between them, but luckily we’ve put the Mazda3 Sedan and Honda Civic head to head so you can see which one is the best choice for you.


Mazda is known for its emphasis on performance and driving fun, and that’s evident in the Mazda3. The 2019 Mazda3 has a new torsion beam rear suspension giving it even better performance than the outgoing model. The Civic also performs well, but the Mazda is still preferable for driving enthusiasts. The Mazda3 also puts out more horsepower than any Civic engine at 186 hp, compared to the Civic’s 158 or 174 max.


The interior of the Mazda3 Sedan is constructed of high-quality materials, with soft-touch materials and a sophisticated feel. The Honda Civic also sports some soft-touch materials but also has some plastic pieces in the cabin, so it looks a bit less refined than the Mazda.

The Mazda also comes with more interior technology than the Honda, with a standard 8.8-inch display, as well as smartphone device pairing standard on all trim levels but the base trim. The Civic doesn’t provide as many standard features, and the touch screen on the Mazda3 is much larger than even the Civic’s upgraded display.


The IIHS and J.D. Power agree that the 2019 Mazda3 is more reliable and safe than the Honda Civic. The IIHS named the Mazda3 a Top Safety Pick and did not award that designation to the Civic, and J.D. Power gave a much better rating out of five to the Mazda3 than the Civic. Plus, the Mazda3 is available with all-wheel drive, while the Civic is not.

There are many reasons to love the 2019 Mazda3 Sedan, even over a popular car like the Honda Civic. Learn more about the Mazda3 and how it can revolutionize your drive at Mazda of Bedford.
