Honda Civic Real Gas Mileage: Pros
YearComment
2016 The new Honda Civic earned EPA ratings among the best in the class with both engines: 31 mpg city, 41 mpg highway with the 2.0-liter engine and 31/42 with the 1.5-liter turbo. With the 2.0-liter I observed suburban averages as high as 43 mpg and a 70-mph highway average around 42. My average for the entire week, including cold starts and idling while taking photos, was 31.8 mpg. With a 2.0-liter engine, the 2017 Hyundai Elantra doesn't come within ten percent of the Honda's scores with a marginally competitive 28/37. Hyundai is adding an Eco variant with a 1.4-liter turbocharged engine. The Eco roughly ties the Civic with 32/40, but with only 128 horsepower it probably won't perform nearly as well. The Mazda3's fuel economy is more competitive: 30/41 with a 2.0-liter engine and 28/39 with a strong 2.5-liter. If you want a manual transmission, the Mazda can seem even better. First off, Honda and Hyundai currently offer a manual transmission only with their base trim levels and base engines, while Mazda offers a manual with both engines and all trim levels. MPG ratings for the Mazda3 with a manual are 29/41 with the 2.0 and 25/37 with the 2.5. With a manual the Honda's EPA ratings are 27/40 and the Hyundai's are 26/36. Next year Honda will offer a manual transmission with additional engines and trim levels. see full Honda Civic review

This one is odd. I travel down to Florida a lot, on a 300-400 mile trip I am between 35-40. Mixed driving I have never gone below 32.4. City driving I once saw it go down to 29.1. I am sure if I drive it like I stole it these figures would drop, but then few drive like this. I will say if you if you light up the four lights on the VTEC you will knock a couple of miles a gallon off your mileage instantly and it will take a while to get back. see full Honda Civic review

It ranks just below the Prius for MPG. My son who bought a 2008 Civic Hybrid says he is getting better than rated MPG. I am trading in a 2005 Honda Accord Hybrid because the city MPG is not anywhere near what I was led to believe. see full Honda Civic review

17mpg if you use all OE specification fluids and drive short trips around town. I get 32mpg with Amsoil full synthetic with cruise control at 65mph. 24mpg for mixed (normal). It *requires* premium. The K20Z3 uses multi-port fuel injection (not DI) with a static compression ratio of 11.0:1. If you put lower grade fuel in, you'll not only have missed the point of the car - you'll also make the engine eat itself from the inside out. see full Honda Civic review

Mazda Mazda3 Real Gas Mileage: Pros
YearComment
2014 Ever since gas guzzling rotary engines almost put Mazda out of business in the 1970s, fuel economy has been a company weakness. The 2013 Mazda3 with a 167-horsepower 2.5-liter engine and five-speed automatic transmission managed only 22 mpg city, 29 mpg highway in the EPA's tests. (The same engine with a manual transmission did even worse, 20/28.) The 2014 with a new SKYACTIV 184-horsepower 2.5-liter engine and six-speed automatic transmission fares much better, 27 mpg city and 37 mpg highway. A $1,600 Tech Package (on the tested car) adds a capacitor-based regenerative braking system that bumps these ratings to 28/38. Quite impressive for a large, fairly powerful four-cylinder engine. The i's 155-horsepower 2.0-liter engine does a bit better still, 30/40, but anyone who cares about driving will gladly trade a 2-3 mpg to pick up 29 horsepower. In my real-world, sub-freezing suburban driving, the trip computer reported a two-way average around 40 mpg when I drove with a feather-light right foot. Push the car harder and high-20s to mid-30s happen. The Focus also manages 27/37 in the EPA's tests, but wasn't quite as efficient as the Mazda in my real-world driving. Others including the 23/35 Dodge Dart GT and 21/29 Kia Forte SX don't come close. see full Mazda Mazda3 review

Mazda Mazda3 Real Gas Mileage: Pros

2014 4dr Hatch 184-horsepower 2.5L I4
6-speed shiftable automatic FWD
Even with the 2.5L 'S' Option, the Mazda SkyActiv tech gives the Mazda3 a very impressive 28/39MPG. The 2.0L standard option gives 31/42. That's pretty standard in most new cars, however the performance for that economy is well above average. Good engines, these are. see full Mazda Mazda3 review

30+mpg avg since new; starting to improve to around 33mpg per tankful, mixed driving, more town than highway see full Mazda Mazda3 review

6-speed shiftable automatic FWD
While reviews are mixed, the Skyactiv engine delivers as promised for me. With over 70% city/suburb driving, I've yet to average under 30mpg (odo/pump). Set the cruise control at 65-70 and > 40mpg is easy on a flat highway. see full Mazda Mazda3 review

This car does very well.. I drive mostly highway during the week, but a lot of rush hour driving means lots of stop and go. Even with that and the around town driving I do on the weekends, I am still averaging 38.1 MPG! see full Mazda Mazda3 review

Hard to beat 40 mpg in a car that drives as well and has the performance of the Mazda3. Most ZOOM ZOOM for the price of any car I test drove. see full Mazda Mazda3 review
2012 4dr Hatch 155-horsepower 2.0L I4
6-speed shiftable automatic FWD
I drive it on the highway at a constant speed of about 78 with the cruise control on, for my daily commute . Very little traffic on my commute, and speed limit is 70. I get about 33 mpg, or 380 miles per tank. I've found that long-range runs of an hour or more seems to burn out the gunk, and I have better fuel economy for the next week or two. I figure driving near 80 is killing the advertised 39 mpg with the Skyactiv engine. see full Mazda Mazda3 review

2013 4dr Hatch 155-horsepower 2.0L I4
6-speed shiftable automatic FWD
Fuel economy has been OK. I usually do a 50/50 mix and in good weather, I get in the high 7s/100km or about 30 MPG. In the cold weather, it's been closer to 9L/100km or about 26 MPG. Strangely, it's about the same economy I got with my 99 Civic w/ 4 spd auto. see full Mazda Mazda3 review

22 mpg (city) in a car this small is abysmal. 27 highway is worse. see full Mazda Mazda3 review

I have the Grand Touring model with the upped engine. Fuel economy is very poor compared to other cars in its class. see full Mazda Mazda3 review

It sucks (literally). Slightly better than 25 mpg overall (I am driving one with a bigger engine). The 3 i variant would do better without much sacrafaces. But the rating is still below Civics and Corollas of the world. see full Mazda Mazda3 review

Fuel economy in the VW GTI is slightly better than the Mazda 3, but it requires premium fuel. In the end, it's about even. see full Mazda Mazda3 review

We average aprox 22MPG. Dont buy the Speed version of the Mazda 3 if your looking for fuel economy. Buy it if you have a smile pasted on your face when you drive. see full Mazda Mazda3 review
