The Mazda3 and the Honda Civic are popular models to find on the road because of their reliability and sporty performance. Both cars come head to head in many categories and continue to remain competitive in the auto industry among consumers. If you want to find the best fit for your needs, there are a few factors to compare between the 2020 Mazda3 and the 2020 Honda Civic to determine which one is worth owning when you need a new set of wheels.

Exterior Features

The exterior styling of the 2020 Mazda3 allows it to look like a luxury vehicle because it sits low to the ground and has a long hood, making it appear similar to a fancy sports car. The hatchback design contributes to its appeal, along with the slim and edgy headlights that are discrete on the front of the vehicle. The unique curves on the side of the body also cause it to have a chic and upscale style. The 2020 Honda Civic doesn't hold back with the number of features it has that are bold and eye-catching. Between the edgy spoiler to the C-shape headlamps, the compact car makes a statement and turns head. Some people may find the car to be too flashy and as if it's trying too hard compared to the elegant styling of the Mazda3.


The 2020 Mazda3 comes standard with a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine, which delivers 186 horsepower. It's designed with tight body control with natural-feeling steering and a firm ride. The quick acceleration of the new Honda Civic is one of the main selling points of the vehicle, as well as the precise steering and controlled body lean. Some people may find it's not as sporty to drive as the 2020 Mazda3. Standard power for the Civic starts at 158 horsepower and tops out at 174 horsepower.

Interior Features

The interior of the new Mazda3 comes with heated seats, a head-up display, and premium materials, making the cabin feel chic and luxurious despite its athletic design. It comes standard with an 8.8-inch infotainment display and a console-mounted rotary knob. The interior of the Civic boasts a long list of premium materials but lacks as much room compared to the Mazda3. Some people in the back row may find it difficult to stretch their legs out.
