You can research Honda vehicles here on the Vatland Honda website, and even compare Honda's models to their competitors. Let's see how the 2016 Honda Civic stacks up against the Mazda 3 compact sedan.

Style and Design

With its striking, all-new design for 2016, the Honda Civic has regained its spot atop the compact car class when it comes style and sportiness. From its larger grille and more aggressive front air dam to its slanted roofline and angular taillights, there is no mistaking the sleek Civic for any other compact. While the Mazda 3 sedan is also known for offering sporty style and driving dynamics, its now-ageing design can't compete with the crisp lines of the all-new Civic. Its smaller dimensions and short rear deck behind the rear seats means that there simply isn't as much space for passengers or cargo inside the Mazda.

Cargo Capacity

While cargo capacity may not be the first criteria that comes to mind when shopping for a compact sedan, it is still very crucial. Afterall, most compact car drivers are looking for one vehicle that is versatile enough for anything that their daily life can throw their way. Thanks to its increased overall dimensions and long, slanting roofline, the all- Civic provides a surprisingly spacious cargo area behind the rear seats. At 15.1 cubic feet of maximum cargo capacity, the Civic's trunk size rivals many mid-size sedans! Trunk space is one area where the Mazda 3 sedan really falters, as it offers a mere 12.4 cubic feet.

Passenger Volume

If passenger space and comfort matters to you when selecting a compact car, then you had better have the all-new Civic at the top of your test drive list! The latest version of Honda's iconic compact car offers not only more cargo capacity than the Mazda 3, but also more passenger volume. In all, the 2016 Civic features more trunk space, more front headroom and legroom, as well as more second-row legroom and shoulder room than its rival from Mazda. To get the entire packaging when shopping for an affordable compact car, choose the all- Civic!

Standard Features

Honda's latest Civic compact car is packed with desirable features, many of which come as standard equipment on the base Civic model. For instance, the base Civic LX is outfitted with such standard amenities as a Multi-Angle Rearview Camera, Automatic Climate Control, power windows with auto-up/down driver's and front passenger's windows, cruise control, USB audio interface, and seating for five passengers. Additional features that come standard on every 2016 Honda Civic include:

  • Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)
  • Eco Assist™ System
  • Dual Stage, Multiple-Threshold Front Airbags (SRS)
  • SmartVent® Front Side Airbags
  • Side Curtain Airbags with Rollover Sensor
  • Automatic Climate Control System
  • Bluetooth® HandsFreeLink®
  • Bluetooth® Streaming Audio
  • 5-inch Color LCD Screen
  • Average Fuel Economy Indicators

Available Features

If you are searching for a compact car that offers the same features of cars that cost many thousands more, then be sure to shop for a 2016 Honda Civic! The base model of the all-new Civic is even available with Honda Sensing™, Honda's suite of safety and driver assistive-technologies. Unfortunately for drivers who choose Mazda, there are no such options offered on the base Mazda 3 model. Leather seating surfaces and heated front and rear seats are another popular available option on the new Civic. The long list of amenities available on Honda's latest Civic compact car continues with:

  • Lane departure warning system
  • Lane keeping assist system
  • Lane sway warning system
  • Pedestrian detection
  • Radar- or camera-based collision preparation system
  • Automatic braking, high-speed or partial
  • Forward collision warning
  • Adaptive Cruise Control with Low-Speed Follow (ACC)
  • Multi-Angle Rearview Camera with Dynamic Guidelines
  • Dual-Zone Automatic Climate Control System
  • Leather-Wrapped Steering Wheel
  • Leather-Wrapped Shift Knob

Safety

The 2016 Honda Civic has earned five-star ratings across the board from federal safety officials. The IIHS has crash-tested the all-new Civic sedan and has given it top "Good" ratings in each category of testing -- including the top "Superior" rating in the front collision avoidance category, as the Civic managed to autonomously brake and fully avoid an impact at a closing speed of up to 25 mph. The Civic even earned the agency's highly coveted Top Safety Pick+ award! While the Mazda 3 is also an extremely safe vehicle, as shown by its safety ratings, it doesn't quite reach the level of safety that you will get with the new Civic. The 2016 Mazda 3 achieved top five-star ratings in nearly all of the federal crash tests, other than the calculated rollover test, where it earned a four-star rating. If you want a compact car that is big on safety, then choose the all- Honda Civic!
