2016 Mazda CX-3 Is Tackling Honda HR-V: The Fight Is On

By  | 

The Honda HR-V has been a very impressive vehicle but the Mazda CX-3 is now heading our way and we believe that it may well take over from the HR-V and knock it off the top spot.

The Mazda CX-3 does have some great looks and along with this it is a great vehicle to drive and it is also a very comfortable one. The engine in the vehicle is the 2 litre SkyActive G and it should offer up about 146 horses. There is another two choices of engine and they should ensure that you get about 35mpg on the highway and around 29mpg when travelling around the city.

The Honda HR-V is going to have the 1.8 litre 4 cylinder engine and this should offer up 141 horses. The base version should give you around 35mpg when you take it onto the highway and about 28mpg when travelling around the city.

The Mazda CX-3 is the vehicle that has the better looks, however it is the Honda HR-V that offers plenty of space and it comes out ahead for fuel efficiency. If you want a fun drive the CX-3 comes ahead though.

You can pick up the Honda HR-V for around $19, 215 and the base version of the Mazda CX-3 is going to cost you about $19, 960.
