Power Ranked 2018 Honda Accord 2.0T Sport FWD better.
"The 2.0T is noticeably more powerful, although the 1.5T in the civic is definitely adequate. I much prefer the 10-speed auto in the 2-liter accord vs the CVT in the 1.5-liter accords and civic."

Looks/Style Ranked 2019 Mazda MAZDA3 better.
"Cleaner design, does not have ugly Honda chrome bar and the huge fake vents that only Honda designers seem to love."
Would Buy Ranked 2019 Mazda MAZDA3 better.
"It just looks so much better both exterior and interior wise."
