What we love most about Mazda’s compact car option is that it’s a perfect example of how beauty and practicality can happily coexist. This year, the new Mazda3 and Honda Fit hit the market right around the same time, getting the attention of compact car lovers everywhere. We’ve had a chance to review them thoroughly. Let’s get right into what makes these two different.
The Mazda3 hatchback arrived with a newer grille, reformed back bumper and glimmering LED headlights. Honda’s new Fit looks pretty much the same as it did last year.
Inside the Mazda3, you will see added storage space to minimize clutter, interior padding to improve sound insulation and a slew of safety features like blind spot monitoring and rear cross traffic alert. Again, the Fit doesn’t measure up to the 3 in features.
The Fit has a 1.5L four-cylinder engine with 130 horsepower. The Mazda3 has a 2.0L four-cylinder with 155 horsepower, and you even get the option of purchasing a power powerful option of 184 horsepower. If you’re thinking that this is going to cost you more fuel–think again! Despite all this power the 3 still has better fuel economy than the Fit.
Let’s not forget about Mazda’s exclusive new feature–G-Vectoring Control. This luxurious new technology activates to make your drive a smoother and safer one at every speed, turn and brake. Unfortunately, the Fit does not have this advantage.
As you can see by now, the Mazda3 beats the Fit in safety, looks, power and fuel economy. Don’t miss out on the luxury and technology that Mazda has to offer. Purchasing a compact car doesn’t have to mean a sacrifice in comfort or reliability.
