If you want a sporty, zippy, and comfortable car, the 2020 Mazda3 is a great choice. The Mazda is available in four trims. Each trim has a nice variety of standard features, and you can always add on more features for a custom appearance and finish. The Mazda gets a new set of standard safety aids for the 2020 model year that are intuitive and easy to utilize. One of the main competitors of the Mazda3 is the 2020 Honda Civic. The 2020 Mazda3 offers greater value than the Honda Civic, with more standard features for the price on all trims and a more memorable interior design.

Safety and Technology

Safety and technology are notable highlights of the 2020 Mazda3. The base trim gets Mazda’s full suite of advanced safety aids. Forward collision mitigation is standard, along with lane-keep assist, adaptive cruise control, and a drowsy driver monitor. The Mazda also has an emergency telematics system that aids by alerting proper personnel when you are in an accident. The Mazda’s safety features are high-quality and easy to use. The base Mazda comes with an 8.8-inch display screen, while the base Civic only has a five-inch display and offers a seven-inch display as the largest display screen available.

Interior Design

With room for five, there’s plenty of seating capacity for everyone, including five adults. There is ample space left over in the cargo area for luggage and gear. The Honda Civic has less space in the back row, which makes backseat occupants feel more crowded. If you’re looking for luxury features, be sure to ask about upgrades available in select Mazda trims such as leather seats on the higher-end models and multi-zone climate control.


Overall, the Mazda3 is the car to get if you’re seeking value. At all trims, the Mazda offers more standard features and amenities than what you’ll get with the Honda Civic, including a larger infotainment display screen, more luxurious options, and innovative driver safety technology that is intuitive and a breeze to use.
