Mazda3 vs Honda Fit

Here in the East Stroudsburg, Stroudsburg, Easton, Brodheadsville and Saylorsville areas, you're bound to see a lot of trucks and SUVs out on the road. But if you're looking to deviate from the norm with a small sedan or hatchback, the Honda Fit and Mazda 3 are both good options. 

Nevertheless, in this Honda Fit vs. Mazda 3 comparison, our team at Ray Price Mazda will show you which vehicle repeatedly comes out on top.

Honda Fit vs Mazda 3: Performance Specs

We all have a different idea of what makes a car great. But one thing drivers typically agree on is speed-we want as much of it as we can get.

The 2017 Honda Fit is a rather efficient car, maintaining impressive combined mileage with its 1.5L inline 4-cylinder engine and available continuously variable transmission. However, this combination only allows it to produce 130 horsepower (hp) and 114 lb-ft of torque.

The 2017 Mazda 3, on the other hand, is a more power-oriented car. With its bigger 2.0L SKYACTIV®-G 4-cylinder engine, it can easily generate up to 155 hp and 150 lb-ft of torque. Nevertheless, it still qualifies as a Partial Zero Emissions Vehicle that's able to maintain 37 highway MPG and 28 city MPG1 - nearly as much as its competitor.

Interior Differences

At first glance, these two vehicles may appear to be fairly similar in size. For its class, the Honda Fit is a spacious vehicle with 95.7 cubic feet of passenger space. However, the Mazda 3 offers slightly more room with 96.3 cubic feet.

They do have quite a few commonalities in terms of their standard interior styling. Both vehicles come trimmed in cloth and include 6-way manually adjustable seats.

When it comes to their technology, however, they diverge once again. The Fit features a 5-inch touchscreen and 4-speaker audio system. Passengers can easily connect devices using the USB port, auxiliary jack, or Bluetooth®.

The Mazda 3 has all these features in its MAZDA CONNECT™ Infotainment system, plus much more. Here, you'll also have hands-free texting, additional music apps, and the E911 automatic emergency notification.

Mazda 3 vs Honda Fit: Safety Features

Structure and standard safety technology like vehicle stability control and traction control are highly important in both of these vehicles. The Fit, for example, is enhanced with rigid Advanced Compatibility Engineering™, and the Mazda 3 features the SKYACTIV®-BODY ring structure.

However, the Mazda 3 adds in additional safety technologies, such as SKYACTIV®-Vehicle Dynamics with G-Vectoring Control, which can greatly augment vehicle handling. 

It's perhaps for this reason that the Mazda 3 earns a 2017 TOP SAFETY PICK+ from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, while the Honda Fit is sent home empty-handed.

Take the Next Step with a Test Drive

Reading about the 2017 Mazda 3 and Honda Fit is great way for East Stroudsburg, Stroudsburg, Easton, Brodheadsville and Saylorsville drivers to determine which vehicle is right for them. But it's the test drive that really seals the deal.
