Mazda 3 vs. Honda Fit - near Campbell River and Nanaimo


Mazda 3 Outperforms Honda Fit

When you start your search for a new compact car you will quickly realize how many choices there are.  While there may be a lot of vehicles to choose from there are some that have more to offer than others.  The only way to really know which car is the better choice for your driving needs is to put them side-by-side and compare them to each other.  The Mazda 3 and Honda Fit are a perfect matchup for a vehicle comparison.  They both offer innovative high-tech features and some pretty impressive fuel economy ratings, but one of them outshines the other in almost every category.  The Mazda 3 offers a few more features than the Honda Fit that drivers want in their new car.  The base trim level of the Mazda 3 offers a navigation system and universal garage door opener whereas the Honda Fit does not.

The competition between the Mazda 3 and Honda Fit really starts to heat up as we take a closer look at their performance and fuel economy ratings.  The Mazda 3 comes standard with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that puts out 155 horsepower and earns an EPA-estimated fuel economy rating of 29 city/41 highway/33 combined mpg.  The Honda Fit has a smaller 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine that is only capable of delivering 130 horsepower.  Its fuel efficiency also falls short of the new Mazda 3.  The Honda Fit offers a less efficient EPA-estimated fuel economy rating of 29 city/37 highway/32 combined mpg.

If its performance and fuel economy you are looking for in your next new car, the Mazda 3 is the obvious choice.  The new Mazda 3 not only offers more horsepower and miles per gallon, but is also delivers a more spirited driving experience that the Honda Fit just can’t compete with.  This comparison between the Mazda 3 vs.  Honda Fit shows the Mazda 3 as the winner in all the major categories that are most important to consumers shopping for a new car in the compact segment.
