2021 Mazda3 Sport Takes On the 2021 Honda Civic in BC, Canada

Delivering maximum practicality in a smaller package, a compact hatchback is a versatile option for getting around BC, Canada. To provide car shoppers with some perspective on what to look for in this segment, we’ve created an in-depth look at how the 2021 Mazda3 Sport stacks up against the 2021 Honda Civic.

Unlike the 2021 Honda Civic Hatchback, which only offers a 180-hp turbocharged 1.5L four-cylinder engine, the Mazda3 Sport has an impressive range of powertrain options. All 2021 GX models start with a Skyactiv-G 2.0L four-cylinder engine with 155 hp and 150 lb.-ft. of torque, but climbing to the GS or GT adds a more potent 186-hp 2.5L four-cylinder with 186 lb.-ft. of torque.

If you’re looking to enhance your adventures, the 2021 Mazda3 Sport offers an optional 350-hp Skyactiv-G 2.5 T Dynamic Pressure Turbo engine with 320 lb.-ft. of torque. Better yet, this block also connects to a responsive AWD to provide BC drivers with four-season confidence, which you won’t find in the 2021 Honda Civic.

In addition to available all-wheel drive, the 2021 Mazda3 Sport also delivers one of the most engaging rides in the compact hatchback segment. With its athletic cornering, agile handling and well-weighted steering, you’ll love how well this platform hugs the road. 

Now, don’t get us wrong – the 2021 Honda Civic also handles well around twists and turns and its steering is very responsive. But what you’ll find is that its suspension tuning is more comfort-focused, delivering fewer thrills on BC’s roads. Expect a mild experience.

If you like premium appointments and high-quality materials, you’ll enjoy riding in the cabin of the 2021 Mazda3 Sport. With plenty of soft-touch surfaces, a modern design and supportive front seats, this compact hatchback out-performs the 2021 Honda Civic’s lacklustre interior, which is overdue for an update.

In terms of size, the five-passenger 2021 Sport and 2021 Civic are comparable; but you’ll get 1,334L of cargo volume in the Mazda by folding the rear seats versus 1,308.2L in the Honda. For road trips around BC or runs to the home improvement store, you won’t regret having more space for your belongings.

When it comes to driver assistance features, the 2021 Sport doesn’t hold back. All trim levels include a blind-spot monitoring system and rear-cross traffic alert, which is more robust compared to the 2021 Civic’s passenger-side blind-spot display. Mazda also offers optional aids, such as pedestrian detection, lane departure warning and driver attention alert, which you won’t find in the Honda hatchback.

You also get a larger 8.8-inch infotainment screen in the 2021 Mazda3 Sport, two USB ports and an eight-speaker audio system as standard. The Civic? You’ll have to settle for a five-inch display, one USB port and a four-speaker audio system - unless you pay for expensive upgrades.

There’s a Clear Winner for BC, Canada Drivers: The 2021 Mazda3 Sport Takes the Checkered Flag
