Have you been searching for new Honda vehicles for sale? If so, we encourage you to visit us at Keyes Honda. Not only is our inventory of Honda cars superb, our sales team is always available to answer any questions you may have—even about our competitors. Lately we’ve been meeting customers who are trying to compare our Honda HR-V to the Mazda CX-3. Both of these SUVs are great, but we think you’ll agree that the Honda HR-V comes out on top.

The Honda HR-V

Client model details:

  • Engine: 1.8-liter 4-cylinder engine
  • Power: 141 horsepower, 127 lb-ft torque
  • Cargo volume: 57.6 cu. ft.
  • Passenger volume: 100.1 cu. ft.
  • Available AWD

The new Honda HR-V is a subcompact SUV that gets good gas mileage and power for a vehicle its size. It’s powered by an efficient 1.8-liter engine that’s sure to help you save at the fuel pump. Where the Honda HR-V really stands out from the competition, however, is the interior. 

Five people can fit comfortably inside the Honda HR-V, which boasts sculpted seats and more than 100 cubic feet of passenger volume. All of this space means ample legroom, headroom, and shoulder room for you and your family. 

The Honda HR-V is also a great option for folks who need extra storage space since it has a whopping 57.6 cubic feet of cargo room. This means you’ll always have room to store luggage, sports gear, and everything else you need to get from point A to point B. Plus, our Magic Seats® fold and shift to create multiple cargo configurations. For more information, find a Honda dealer today.

The Mazda CX-3

The Mazda CX-3 is similar to the Honda HR-V in terms of engineering. It has a slightly larger 2.0-liter engine, so you might notice a bit more horsepower. However, the Mazda CX-3 can’t compare to the Honda HR-V when it comes to space and comfort. 

This Mazda SUV only has 44.5 cubic feet of cargo volume, so you won’t be able to fit as much behind the rear seats. Furthermore, it has far less passenger volume. So if stretching out and relaxing on your commute is important, we recommend sticking with the Honda HR-V.
