The 2015 Mazda3 Outshines the Competition

2015 Mazda3 vs. 2014 Honda Civic Comparison

Here are few cars as highly regarded as the Honda Civic. For years it has been the go-to sedan for families across the globe. That is, until now! The 2015 Mazda3 has hit the scene and is setting a new benchmark. With eye catching style and looks, plus performance and efficiency to challenge the best the Mazda3 simply overshadows the Honda Civic. But don’t take our word for it. Maple Shade Mazda plans to let the numbers do the talking with a 2015 Mazda3 vs. 2014 Honda Civic comparison.

The exterior styling of the Mazda3 is fresh, sleek and striking. The Honda isn’t an eyesore, but parked next to the revolutionary silhouette of the Mazda3 it appear quite boring and commonplace. The interior on the Civic struggles to keep up with the Mazda3’s high quality materials and finish, which exceed most in this vehicle class.

The Mazda3 has no shortfall in performance either. The two available engines provide high economy and ample power for when you feel the need to put your foot down.2.0L and 2.5L 4-cylinder  SKYACTIV® TECHNOLOGY engines get 155 and 184 horsepower respectively. Honda’s answer comes in the option of a 1.8L and 2.4L (only available on the Si trim offering manual transmissions only) 4 cylinder engine with 140 and 201 horsepower respectively. The Mazda3 can reach 41MPG highway while the Civic 1.8L tops out at 39MPG.

From behind the wheel you truly recognize what sets these two vehicles apart. The Civic is a capable vehicle that will get you where you’re going in a safe comfortable package. But with its limited power and CVT transmission the experience is rather mundane and uninspiring. On the other hand the Mazda3 provide more than reliable transport and is actually fun and engaging to drive. The Mazda3 rewards its driver with superior acceleration, steering and handling.

So where does this all leave us? It leaves us with the 2015 Mazda3. The price points are all there, the efficiency rivals the best of them, and the performance is available across multiple trim levels. Maple Shade Mazda wants to see you drive off in not just the best car but the right car for you. The 2015 Mazda3 hits both of those marks, so why would you choose anything else?
