DCH Paramus Honda knows that drivers like to shop around before making a major purchase decision like buying a new car, crossover or SUV. If you have been eyeing the 2018 Honda HR-V as your next vehicle, then you may also be cross-shopping other small crossovers such as the 2018 Mazda CX-3. Here on our website, we have compiled a comparison of these two sporty crossovers so that you can get a feel for the key differences between the two. If you decide to explore the 2018 HR-V further, then we invite you to visit our dealership in Paramus, NJ for a test drive!
If you are looking for a crossover that can handle all of your cargo-hauling needs with ease, you are sure to find that the 2018 Honda HR-V is the better option when comparing it with the 2018 Mazda CX-3. While the HR-V has just a slightly longer wheelbase and overall length than the CX-3, it boasts significantly more interior volume for passengers and cargo. For instance, its standard cargo capacity -- when all five seating positions are upright -- is nearly double that of the CX-3, at 24.3 cubic feet behind the second row, compared to just 12.4 cubic feet in the Mazda. When the back seat is needed for cargo hauling, the 2018 HR-V's folds down to uncover a maximum cargo capacity of 58.8 cubic feet, which dwarfs the CX-3 crossover's maximum of 44.5 cubic feet. As you will see, the spacious feel of the 2018 Honda HR-V extends to its passenger area as well.
With the 2018 Honda HR-V crossover's 100.1 cubic feet of passenger volume compared to just 87.6 cubic feet in the Mazda CX-3, the Honda certainly provides a roomier and more comfortable place for up to five occupants to travel. As you can imagine by the drastic difference in overall passenger volume, the HR-V boasts greater dimensions for front and second-row headroom and should room, plus significantly more second-row legroom. Both the 2018 Honda HR-V and 2018 Mazda CX-3 come standard with comfort and convenience amenities including the following:
Standard safety features on the Honda's 2018 HR-V crossover are highlighted by its Multi-Angle Rearview Camera and a Tire Pressure Monitor System (TPMS). The HR-V's Multi-Angle Rearview Camera provides additional viewpoints than the 2018 Mazda CX-3 crossover's standard backup camera -- including normal, top-down and wide angles. The HR-V's available Honda LaneWatch is an advanced blind-spot monitoring system that projects live video of the vehicle's blind spot on the center display screen; the 2018 CX-3 from Mazda is offered with a traditional blind-spot monitor that alerts via visual or audible cues. Standard safety features provided on the crossovers from Honda and Mazda include:
