2017 Honda HR-V vs 2017 Mazda CX-3

Drivers looking for an attractive and versatile vehicle may be intrigued by one of the models in this 2017 Honda HR-V vs 2017 Mazda CX-3 comparison. Each of these compact crossover vehicles can offer maneuverable dimensions, attractive features, and fuel-sipping engines. This makes them ideal for drivers who want a comfortable vehicle, with a tall ride height, for their daily commute and other adventures. Both of the models in this comparison have seating for five passengers. However, we like the 2017 Honda HR-V for its much larger cargo capacity.

The 2017 Honda HR-V compact crossover offers drivers a maximum cargo space of 58.8 cubic feet in select models with the rear seats folded down. That is a significant amount of space for luggage. Even with all seats occupied, this model can offer individuals and small families up to 24.3 cubic feet of space in the rear. In contrast, the 2017 Mazda CX-3 offers just 12.4 cubic feet for space behind the rear seats and a maximum of 44.5 cubic feet with those seats folded down.
