Mazda CX-3 Forum

HRV wins the space race, but I'm starting to feel like Mazda is quickly becoming the company Honda used to be...

HRV: 169.1 x 69.7 x 63.2
CX3: 168.3 x 67.5 x 61


ENGINE

HRV: 1.8L Earthdreams 4 cylinder
CX3: 2.0L SkyActiv 4 cylinder


POWER

HRV: 138 bhp
CX3: 155 bhp (estimated based on Mazda 2)


TORQUE

HRV: 127 ft-lbs
CX3: 150 ft-lbs (estimated based on Mazda 2)

Looks like the CX3 will out power the HRV. It will have to make up that difference in other ways. I'm not sure the HRV will really be nicer on the interior either. I think that the CX3 will edge out over the HRV. Pricing will be really important.

Yes, but you also can't forget about strength in numbers. Why do you think the Camry is such a successful seller, because it has mass appeal, you can't go wrong following the herd. For some people that is genuinely soothing.

Mazda 2013 Total Sales: 283,947
Honda 2013 Total Sales: 1,359,876

Both CUVs look very nice. The HRV is larger and roomier while CX-3 exterior may look more meaner and have better performance engine wise. It will be a slug fest. With these introductions Subaru's XV will take a noise dive in terms of sales.

HR-V Killer over any compact CUV will be a hybrid getting around 50mpg at a reasonable price. A CUV Honda already has.

Will be interesting to see how these power specs translate into real world performance figures (0-60, 1/4 mile, top speed, etc...)

Now, as cool as that would be, that's not what these are about, although some performance that makes it fun enough to drive is ultimately what we would want as a good portion of the guys on the forums like us are enthusiasts.

look what CR said about the insides

Interior styling: Inside, the CX-3 doesn’t feel like an entry-level crossover. The plastics and fabrics are of a high grade and rewarding to the touch. The styling of the gauges, knobs, and buttons are a distinguishing blend of high-tech and Steampunk. The Honda plastics are a bit more, well, plasticky. The gauge cluster styling is futuristic in appearance.

0 to 60 and MPG

If the 2016 HRV weight is similar to the 2014 Vezel, there is:
11% increase in torque from 114 to 127 ft-lb.
7% increase in hp from 129 to 138 hp.
then 0 to 60 should go from 11 sec to either:
9.75 sec for 11% better or
10.23 sec for 7% improvement.

Which isn't too bad. My Honda 2004 CRV feels fine entering the highway with 2 adults and kid in the back. It starts to feel sluggish with 5 adults but coworkers still prefers to ride in it rather than their sedans to bigger SUVs when out to lunch. Maybe easier parking and exiting...

MPG is pretty good too and the major reason I'm switching from the CRV to HRV due to long commute now:
Fuel consumption
extra-urban / city / highway / average combined:
mpg (U.S.):
35.3-45 / 23.8-30.3 / 28.8-36.7 / 33.5

3 times I tried to post pictures comparing the rear legroom of the HRV and the CX3, only get messages that my posts are pending approval of a moderator. WTF???

Thanks for posting these. I didn't know if they were going to let people sit in them at the show. The Mazda looks a little tight, but that doesn't really surprise me considering it's one of my biggest complaints with the current and last gen Mazda3. Wasn't very impressed with the last gen Fit either but thankfully it is something they improved on with the current Fit and that's carried over to the HR-V.

that rear passenger leg space difference from the mazda to HRV is amazing, good to see the HRV is more passenger friendly.
