Mazda vs. Honda: 2017 Battle of the Brands

2 of 14


Winner: Inconclusive

Pricing is a difficult category when comparing Honda and Mazda. Honda’s overall average price for its entire fleet is more expensive than that of Mazda. However, Honda offers a hybrid, a minivan, and a compact pickup truck, which are expensive models that Mazda doesn’t make.

In terms of competing vehicles’ starting prices, the compact Mazda3 costs nearly $1,000 less than the Honda Civic, and the Mazda6 slightly undercuts the Honda Accord. The SUV segment proves the opposite. Mazda’s subcompact CX-3 costs a bit more than Honda’s HR-V, the automakers’ compact SUVs share identical starting prices, and the midsize Mazda CX-9 is almost $1,000 more expensive than the Honda Pilot.

Depending on which models and trims you are interested in, either automaker could potentially save you money, or cost you more.
