Appearance

The Mazda3 features head-turning styling on the inside and the outside. The exterior has flowing lines that suggest motion, while the sophisticated interior is truly awe-inspiring. The infotainment system is well-integrated into the dash. While Honda has made inroads transforming the Civic from its econobox roots, the 2019 Civic doesn’t approach the same level of styling as the Mazda3.

Safety

When you buy a new vehicle, you want it to be as safe as possible. Both the 2019 Mazda3 and the 2019 Honda Civic are safe cars. Both received excellent crash-test scores from the IIHS. But the organization named the Mazda three as one of its Top Safety Pick models for 2019, while the Civic wasn’t singled out for special recognition.

The Mazda3 and the Civic come with a number of driver-assist features including lane-keep assist and automatic emergency braking. However, the Mazda3 gives you more, with a driver attention system that sounds an alert when its sensors detect the driver is getting drowsy. You can’t get a driver attention system in the Honda Civic.

Our Final Word

The 2019 Honda Civic is a good car. But when you consider important categories such as performance, the availability of all-wheel drive, features, appearance and safety, it’s clear that the 2019 Mazda3 is the winner of this competition.
