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."

Would Buy Ranked 2019 Mazda MAZDA3 better.
"It just looks so much better both exterior and interior wise."
