The 3 is defined by its fine handling which is partially due to the 17-inch wheels. Once again, the Mazda 3 tops the economy sedan class, beating the Civic as the leader in this hotly contested segment. The 3's 2.3-liter four pumps out 160 hp and 150 lb-ft of torque. Of course, you can't see it under all this plastic. While not as ergonomically perfect as the Civic's arrangement, the Mazda 3's head unit adds to the sporty look of the car's interior. We preferred the 3's five-speed manually shiftable automatic over the Civic's traditional automatic. Mazda's interior would look at home in a luxury car. The 3 scored well for interior design, materials and build quality. We still prefer the Mazda 3 five-door's looks and function, but we found the sedan's handling marginally sharper. We prefer the Mazda's more traditional proportions to the Honda's modernized lines. Leather seats are standard on S Grand Touring trim-level Mazda 3s. A conventional instrument panel design works well on the 3. Mazda 3.
