LOMA LINDA, Calif., June 24, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Shopping for cars is all about the comparison of two vehicles. Then come the inevitable questions trying to answer which car will get better gas mileage, which one will be more comfortable to drive or will the family be comfortable being carted from point to point in this car. There are infinitely more questions to ask and have answered, but where does one go to find this information? The staff at Spreen Honda asked themselves this exact same question and have come up with the simplest answer; people can just go to them for direct comparisons. And among the most recent comparisons they have handled for customers is the 2013 Honda Civic vs. the 2013 Mazda3.

The 2013 Honda Civic and the 2013 Mazda3 each represent how far compact cars have come since their early days of being simple, value-driven cars. Today's compact cars combine eye-catching style and fuel-economy into a still highly affordable package. The 2013 Honda Civic is powered by a 1.8-liter, four-cylinder engine with enough horsepower and torque to make it fun to drive and still will record nearly 30 miles per gallon on city streets and nearly 40 miles per gallon during highway driving. The 2013 Mazda3 is also a four-cylinder powered car with almost identical Environmental Protection Agency fuel-economy scores.

A major factor for people choosing compact cars is their safety ratings from agencies like the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). The 2013 Honda Civic near Riverside, CA that is available from Spreen Honda has been consistently one of the safest cars on the road for many model-years. In recent government crash testing done by the NHTSA, the 2013 Civic was given a perfect score of five out of five stars in overall crash protection with another perfect score in side-crash testing. The Mazda3 performed admirable with a four out of five-star crash test score. Furthering the 2013 Honda Civic's case as one of the safest cars on the road is the evaluation the car received from the IIHS. The non-profit safety agency named the Civic as a 2013 Top Safety Pick+, for its performance in their crash tests. The 2013 Honda Civic is the first compact car to be given such a distinction.
