Few small sedans are as self-confident as the 2018 Honda Civic, but pride cometh before the fall. Despite the Honda Civic’s bluster, its supposed edge over the competition rings false after a comparison with the 2018 Mazda3. Don’t believe us? That’s okay — but you’re about to change your mind.

Performance

Entry-level versions of each model initially appear well-matched. The new Mazda3 fits a 2.0L four-cylinder for up to 155 hp and 150 lb-ft of torque, while the new Honda Civic comes to the table with 158 hp and 138 lb-ft of torque from a four-cylinder.

But what gives the Mazda3 its edge is SKYACTIV®-VEHICLE DYNAMICS with G-Vectoring Control, which adjusts power and weight distribution for a subtly superior ride — as noted by Edmunds, the Mazda3 is “the best to drive” in its class. It also makes more power available, scaling up to 184 hp and 185 lb-ft of torque to the Honda’s available 174 hp and 167 lb-ft of torque.

Technology

Honda generally equips their standard models well, but the 2018 Honda Civic is apparently an exception. Just check out how easily standard Mazda3 technology surpasses it:

  • A 7-inch full-color touchscreen in the Mazda vs. a 5-inch LCD screen in the Honda.
  • A 6-speaker sound system in the Mazda vs. a 4-speaker sound system in the Honda.
  • Bluetooth connectivity and SMS text messaging in the Mazda vs. basic Bluetooth in the Honda.

Safety

The 2018 Honda Civic could have excelled above and beyond the 2018 Mazda3 in terms of performance and technology, but things would still have come crashing down when drivers turned to safety.

Both models offer advanced driver-assistance technology, including Lane Departure Warning and Radar Cruise Control. However, only the Mazda3 brings its Smart City Brake Support forward collision warning and mitigation system as standard. It also makes advances beyond what even a fully loaded Honda Civic can provide. The Adaptive Front Lighting System is a good example — it pivots the headlights as you steer for exceptional visibility through curves and corners.
