2017 Honda Civic vs. 2017 Mazda Mazda6 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Mazda Mazda6 than the Honda Civic, due to its greater head- and legroom. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Honda Civic, drivers may find the Mazda Mazda6 a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Honda Civic as you will with the Mazda Mazda6, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). When looking only at MSRP, the Honda Civic will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Mazda Mazda6. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Honda Civic and the Mazda Mazda6 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Honda Civic is much slimmer than the Mazda Mazda6, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Honda Civic, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Mazda Mazda6.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Honda Civic doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Mazda Mazda6.

Handling
The Honda Civic has a smaller turning radius than the Mazda Mazda6, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Honda Civic has less horsepower than the Mazda Mazda6, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Honda Civic and the Mazda Mazda6. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the Honda Civic as you will in the Mazda Mazda6.

Warranty
The Honda Civic comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Mazda Mazda6.
