2019 Mazda CX-3 vs 2019 Honda HR-V 

The crossover SUV segment is competitive; two top contenders include the 2019 Mazda CX-3 and the 2019 Honda HR-V. But which is the superior vehicle? The win clearly goes to the Mazda CX-3. Find out why!


Though similarly priced, the 2019 Mazda CX-3 carries a starting price slightly lower than the 2019 Honda HR-V. The Mazda CX-3 Sport (base model) retails for just $20,390 while the Honda HR-V LX (base mode) starts at $20,520, $130 more than the comparable Mazda CX-3.


The 2019 CX-3 is powered by a SKYACTIV®-G 2.0-liter I-4 engine, mated to a six-speed automatic transmission, which serves up 148 horsepower. The 2019 Honda HR-V can't compete; its 1.8-liter I-4 with a continuously variable transmission (CVT) pumps out just 141 horsepower. To enhance performance and traction in the Mazda CX-3, drivers can opt for i-ACTIV AWD® all-wheel drive. Other key performance features include SKYACTIV-VEHICLE DYNAMICS with G-Vectoring Control and Drive Selection with Sport Mode.

Fuel Economy

Despite offering superior performance stats, the 2019 Mazda CX-3 is also more fuel-efficient than the 2019 Honda HR-V. While both models yield up to 34 miles per gallon on the highway, the Mazda CX-3 achieves up to 29 in the city; the HR-V only gets 28 highway mpg.*

Exterior Design

Mazda's KODO Soul of Motion design philosophy has led to a more attractive, head-turning design. While the HR-V looks like a smaller version of the bland CR-V, the CX-3 is bold and athletic, with a sense of motion even in stillness. Exterior color options include Soul Red Crystal Metallic, Snowflake White Pearl, Machine Gray Metallic, Ceramic Metallic, Titanium Flash Mica, Deep Crystal Blue Mica, Eternal Blue Mica, and Jet Black Mica.

Hands down, the 2019 Mazda CX-3 is the better performing, more efficient, and more stylish choice - and it's also the best value. You can test drive the new 2019 Mazda CX-3 at Hiley Mazda of Hurst.
