At Garden State Honda, we want to help you with the car-buying process. We understand that sometimes it can be hectic trying to find the vehicle you have your eyes on. Perhaps you’re interested in the 2019 Honda Civic or the 2019 Mazda3? While both vehicles offer plenty for you to love, it’s important to narrow down your search to only one.
In order to help you learn more about the 2019 Civic and the 2019 Mazda3, we’ve taken a closer look at both models below. Keep reading for more information.
You’ll find plenty of trim levels offered with the 2019 Honda Civic: the base LX, Sport, EX, EX-L, and Touring. Each trim level comes with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder that generates 158 hp and 138 lb-ft of torque paired with a six-speed manual transmission. For this engine, drivers can choose a continuously variable transmission instead. Next up is a turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine that delivers 174 hp and 162 lb-ft of torque. This engine is available for the EX, EX-L, and Touring trims. It comes standard with the continuously variable transmission.
When it comes to the features of the Honda Civic, you can expect a wide array of technology, safety, and comfort features. For instance, the base LX gets you automatic climate control, LED running lights, a rearview camera, a 5-inch central display screen, a height-adjustable driver’s seat, 16-inch wheels, and more. And the list of amenities and features only increases as you go up the Civic trim ladder.
A highlight of the Civic is the fact that it offers the Honda Sensing safety package as standard. The Honda Sensing package comes with lane departure warning, automatic high beams, automatic emergency braking, lane keeping assist, forward collision warning, and road departure mitigation.
The 2019 Mazda3 is offered in several unique trim levels which are known as packages: the base, Select, Preferred, and Premium. Each Mazda3 comes with a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that makes 186 hp and 186 lb-ft of torque. The engine comes paired with a six-speed automatic transmission.
Taking a look at the base trim, you’ll find LED headlights, daytime running lights, and taillights, an 8.8-central display, voice commands, push-button start, a 60/40-split folding rear seat, and more. For the Select, you gain Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, forward collision warning, 18-inch wheels, dual-zone automatic climate control, keyless entry, lane keeping assist, adaptive cruise control, automatic high beam control, and more.
As you can see, both the 2019 Honda Civic and the 2019 Mazda3 offers a great deal of features you and your passengers are certain to love. While the Mazda3 brings a wide selection of comfort, tech, and safety features to the table, the Honda Civic does the same. However, the 2019 Civic manages to provide the Honda Sensing safety package as standard for each trim. This means drivers receive an extra peace of mind, which is something you can’t really put a price on. Because of this, we feel the 2019 Honda Civic wins out over the 2019 Mazda3.
