See How the New Mazda3 Outperforms the New Honda Civic

So, you'd like a small sedan that's fun to drive and filled with entertaining technology, but none of that really matters if the car is unreliable. People in Conroe, TX who want a car they can depend on should get the new Mazda3. It rides like a dream and has an attractive cabin with innovative features. It also gets good predicted reliability ratings from J.D. Power. The new Honda Civic has engaging driving dynamics and gets good gas mileage. But here at Gullo Mazda of Conroe, we think you'll agree that after a closer look at both cars, you'll agree that the Mazda3 has just a little more of what Houston-area drivers want in a compact car.

Compare the New Mazda3 with the New Honda Civic

  • The Mazda3 Has a Nicer Interior: If you're like most people, you spend a lot of time in your car. For some, its almost as much time as they spend in their home. Just like your house, your car should be a welcoming place where you can get comfortable. While both the Mazda3 and Honda Civic have well-cushioned seats, the Mazda3 goes a little bit further to please the senses. Nearly all its cabin surfaces are soft to the touch, with a design that is both upscale and modern. It has a sturdy build quality, and fit and finish are excellent. The Civic also has a well-constructed interior, but there are some plastic surfaces that seem a little cheaper.
  • The Mazda3 Has a Better Standard Tech Features: Mazda revamped the 3's standard infotainment system, giving it an 8.8-inch screen that is angled toward the driver. Its menus are easy to navigate through, and shortcut icons help you quickly adjust commonly used functions. The Civic's standard infotainment system only comes with a 5-inch display screen. Its interface is not very user-friendly. Also, the Mazda3 offers more standard tech features. In addition to the infotainment system, it comes with a 7-inch driver information display, push-button start, Bluetooth, HD Radio, a rearview camera, an eight-speaker stereo, and two USB ports. The Civic only comes with a four-speaker stereo, Bluetooth, one USB port, and a rearview camera.
  • The Mazda3 Has a Better Ride Quality and Handling: Like most Mazdas, the 3 is known for its peppy engine and thrilling driving dynamics. Its new torsion beam rear suspension and sharp steering gives it well-controlled body motions and composure around turns. You'll enjoy calm cruising in the Mazda3 because it also rides almost as smooth as a luxury car. The Honda Civic also has a well-balanced ride, but its not quite as polished overall as the Mazda3. 
  • The Mazda3 Has Available All-Wheel Drive: When the road gets slippery from ice, mud, snow, or even rain, its nice to have the added grip that all-wheel drive provides. Front-wheel drive comes standard in the 3, but Texas drivers will be glad to know that all-wheel is available for better traction when roads are slick. The Honda Civic doesn't offer all-wheel drive.
  • The Mazda3 Is More Reliable: Nobody wants to be stranded by the road or left without working transportation. The new Mazda 3 has a three out of five predicted reliability rating from J.D. power. You can count on it to start and run well if you keep it maintained. The new Honda Civic only has a 2.5 out of five predicted reliability rating, so it may not run when you need it to.
