2017 Mazda CX-3 vs 2017 Honda HR-V

We bear no shame in saying that Honda sits toward the top of the automotive industry, but before you look at the name you should consider the aspects of the brands themselves. Mazda has quietly climbed the ladder of ingenuity and innovation, and when they rolled out the CX-3, the world was appalled at all it had to offer. A similar model in the Honda HR-V has turned heads as well, but at the end of the day you don’t need two hatchbacks. Let’s take a look at how these two compare.

While Honda is known for being one of the safest brands there is, Mazda has a couple weapons in its arsenal that aren’t available in the HR-V. Important features such as Blind Spot Monitoring and Rear Cross Traffic Alert can mean the difference between a safe trip to the grocery store and a phone call to the nearest tow truck (or worse). What else can you expect to find that’s different between the two? See the comparisons below.

Driving in tough weather conditions can be tough. For anyone who’s had to make the trek through a Wisconsin blizzard in the middle of January, you know that maximum traction is a must. Luckily for CX-3 drivers, the hatchback comes with available i-ACTIV all-wheel drive, which will monitor conditions on the road and reconfigure performance output to give you maximum stability and control during the worst times. Why only put the power to two wheels when you have four? i-ACTIV takes advantage of all the juice the CX-3 can muster up and puts it to good use.
