2019 Mazda CX-3 vs. 2019 Honda HR-V
The Mazda CX-3 routinely ranks at or near the top of the most desirable and well-equipped vehicles in its class. This nearly uninterrupted streak of success has led to the vast array of improvements made to the compact crossover SUV in the new model year. A comparison of the 2019 Mazda CX-3 vs. 2019 Honda HR-V will illustrate several other ways Mazda is delivering some of the best vehicles available in this tightly-packed class of the automotive industry. The 2019 Mazda CX-3 has arrived at the Gorman McCracken Mazda showroom, albeit in small numbers. More models will be available later this summer as the automaker ramps up its production schedule. If you'd like to take a closer look at the 2019 Mazda CX-3, make an appointment with a Gorman McCracken Mazda product expert today.
One of the areas where the 2019 Mazda CX-3 has greatly improved is its lineup of technology. The automaker has added the i-ACTIVSENSE® package on the entry-level Sport trim that now features a new electric parking brake and also employs a series of active safety sensors that constantly monitors the area around the vehicle to keep drivers away from potentially dangerous situations. The 2019 Honda HR-V also offers a similar such system, but it is not available on all of the compact crossover SUV's trims. On a macro level, both vehicles offer a very similar list of features. However, since the 2019 Mazda CX-3 has been redesigned for the new model year it hosts a more advanced version of common equipment like keyless entry. The 2019 Mazda CX-3 is also available with a premium Bose® audio system.

Both Mazda and Toyota have made only one powertrain available for the 2018 Mazda CX-3 and 2018 C-HR, respectively. Each of the available trims of the Mazda CX-3 uses the very efficient SKYACTIV®-G 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine that is connected to the SKYACTIV®-Drive six-speed automatic. Not only does the power plant of the 2018 Mazda CX-3 make 146 horsepower, but front-wheel-drive models can achieve 29 miles per gallon in the city and 34 miles per gallon on the highway. By comparison, the 2018 C-HR uses a similar four-cylinder engine as the Mazda CX-3, but it doesn't make as much power or achieve the same level of fuel efficiency.
