Red 2018 Mazda CX-3, VS Icon, and Blue 2018 Honda HR-V

With its sporty styling, impressive driving characteristics, blend of performance and efficiency, state-of-the-art technologies and high-level safety, the Mazda CX-3 is a leading choice for the increasingly popular subcompact crossover SUV segment. One of the Mazda CX-3's competitors is the Honda HR-V. Take a look at this 2018 Mazda CX-3 vs 2018 Honda HR-V comparison to see how the two subcompact crossovers measure up.

One of the biggest advantages that the Mazda CX-3 has over the HR-V is on the safety front. After winning the prestigious IIHS "Top Safety Safety Pick+" award last year, the Mazda CX-3 raises the bar for safety even higher with the newly standard Smart City Brake Support. This is a useful feature to have when encountering the frenetic pace of "stop and start" city traffic, for the system automatically applies the brakes when a potential collision is detected at low speeds. All Mazda CX-3 models also come standard with a rearview camera and the Engine Immobilizer Anti-Theft System, while Blind Spot Monitoring with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert comes standard on Mazda CX-3 Touring and above grades.
