When comparing subcompact crossovers, Manteca and Stockton drivers might be weighing up the pros and cons of the 2016 Mazda CX-3 and the 2016 Honda HR-V. If you’re one of those people, you’ll want to keep reading to see why the 2016 Mazda CX-3 thoroughly outperforms the 2016 Honda HR-V in terms of power, efficiency, and features.

Powertrain and Efficiency

The 2016 Honda HR-V is fitted with a 1.8L 4-cylinder engine that produces 141 hp and 127 lb-ft of torque. While Honda and Mazda are both known for putting out highly efficient engines, it’s Mazda that is really known for superior performance, and the 2016 Mazda CX-3 shows it.

The 2016 Mazda CX-3 delivers outstanding performance with its 2.0L 4-cylinder engine. You’ll see an output of up to 146 hp and 146 lb-ft of torque for easy maneuvering and quick acceleration — something the HR-V falls short on. The 2.0L engine is paired to a 6-speed automatic transmission. Lanthrop and Turlock drivers will earn up to 35 mpg on the highway and 29 mpg in the city with FWD or 32 mpg on the highway and 27 mpg in the city with AWD.
