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 Hybrid, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Honda Civic Hybrid and the Mazda Mazda6 in the front seats.

Convenience

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).
