Our bet would be on the Mazda3 but you don’t have to take our word for it.

The Mazda3 is an appealing compact sedan in every sense of the term. From an intriguing exterior to a spacious interior, there isn’t a segment where the 2021 Mazda3 does not score well. The sedan is powered by a SKYACTIV®-G 2.5 DOHC 4-cylinder with VVT engine that makes 186 horsepower. And if you opt for the 2.5 Turbo engine, you shall be able to enjoy a power output of 250 hp. The 2021 Honda Civic, on the other hand, puts out only 174 horsepower.
Also, as can be seen from the chart, the 2021 Mazda3 has more trim-level options which is a welcome relief for those who like choices in their purchase. Plus, with a fuel tank capacity of 13.2 gallons, you can expect to make fewer stops at the gas station.
When it comes to safety, the 2021 Mazda3 might be a better choice than the 2021 Honda Civic. The Honda Civic lacks the Blind-Spot Monitor which is pretty off-putting given that most cars these days come with this feature as either a standard or available option.
That said, if you are interested in the 2021 Mazda3 sedan, head over to our dealership to book a test drive and get behind an unparalleled driving experience.
