SAN ANTONIO, April 29, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Second only to the SUV and crossover classes, the sedan segment is the most competitive in the auto industry. It is a constant battle for vehicles to prove they are the strongest choices for prospective buyers, which means everything from their performance to their appearance needs to be on point. Ingram Park Mazda is comparing its 2014 Mazda3 to the 2014 Honda Civic to determine which vehicle offers the most stand-out performance.
In the 2014 model year, both the 2014 Mazda3 and 2014 Honda Civic received upgrades that optimized both their appearances and performances. Mazda took a risk redesigning its bread-and-butter vehicle, which has left many people wondering if the automaker made the right decision.
The 2014 Honda Civic is most loved for its dynamic engine options. Its primary powertrain delivers 143 horsepower and an Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)-estimated 39 mpg highway fuel economy. One of the vehicle's most significant changes is its switch from a 5-speed automatic transmission to a continuously variable transmission (CVT), which increases the vehicle's efficiency and smoothness on the road.
The 2014 Mazda3 received the more significant changes, which have completely redefined its performance and design. Apart from the obvious changes made to the vehicle's stunning appearance, the vehicle's most telling upgrades are found under the hood. Performing with the 2.0-liter SKYACTIV-G gasoline engine, the Mazda3 generates 155 horsepower and an EPA-estimated 41 mpg highway fuel rating. Delivering one of the most athletic and responsive rides in its class, the Mazda3 has proven that its recent updates were well advised.
To experience the changes made to the 2014 Mazda3, drivers can set up a test drive at Ingram Park Mazda today. The dealership can be reached both online and by phone.
