Are you in the market for a superior compact car that harnesses premier performance specs along with an exciting interior? We have exactly what you are looking for here at Bill Gatton Mazda when you set your sights on the Mazda3. With a sturdy powertrain churning beneath the hood and an opulent interior, adding this ride to your arsenal is a no-brainer. To further our argument, we have stacked it up against the 2019 Honda Civic sedan to show how it fares compared to similar vehicles in its class. If you have any questions, pay us a visit at 2909 North Roan Street in Johnson City, TN!


Earning impressive performance specs is of the utmost importance when it comes down to deciding what compact car you want to make yours. The 2019 Mazda3 has no trouble providing all of this and more thanks to the SKYACTIV®-G1 2.5L DOHC 4-cylinder engine that is ready to pounce at your command while cruising down I-81 as it unleashes 186 horsepower and 186 lb.-ft. of torque. You won’t get quite as much force in the 2019 Honda Civic, as this ride comes with a standard 2.0L 4-cylinder engine that can only muster up 158 horsepower and 138 lb.-ft. of torque. When you choose the vehicle from Mazda, you can upgrade to AWD for better handling during inclement weather to maintain superior traction when you need it most. Unfortunately, this is a feature that isn’t available in the Civic. 


Having capable interior amenities that you can take advantage of during your drive is crucial in this day and age. The 2019 Mazda3 doesn’t miss a beat, granting you a standard 8.8-inch touchscreen that plays host to all of your favorite applications and playlists through the Mazda ConnectTM Infotainment System2. The 2019 Civic doesn’t quite deliver in this aspect, as it only offers a 5-inch screen on the base model. Once you find your favorite song in the Mazda3, you will be able to let it fill the cabin with ultimate clarity through the optional Bose® 12-speaker premium audio sound system with Centerpoint® 2 and AudioPilot® 2. Unfortunately, when you choose the Civic, you will only be able to opt for a 10-speaker setup that doesn’t provide nearly as good acoustics, and won’t have a media controller in the center console like the Mazda3 does.


Acquiring a vehicle that will have onlookers gaze in envy as you weave in and out of traffic is just as important as having technology and power. The 2019 Mazda achieves this task with brilliance, and you will notice that at first glance. With a 107.3-inch wheelbase, you will have a muscular stance that demands respect with every turn that you make. The Civic doesn’t quite live up to this measurement, as it only offers a 106.3-inch wheelbase. You will have the opportunity to see the path ahead in the Mazda3 with ultimate clarity, as it comes standard with LED headlights and LED daytime running headlights. On the other hand, with the Civic, you are going to have to dish out some extra cash to achieve these features in highest trim level. Lastly, the Mazda3 offers a memory function for your power side mirrors to return to your desired preferences, while the Civic doesn’t.

Our overview of the 2019 Mazda3 vs 2019 Honda Civic near Kingsport, TN, has the former stealing the show! You can come check out the vehicle from Mazda today when you stop by Bill Gatton Mazda for a test drive.
