I like the Mazda if comparing these configurations, will withhold final judgement until I can explore trims and colors...

CR just said this about their respective 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.

I can't believe there is no center arm rest in the CX3. That just seems like such an oversight. It would have cost them nothing to include, but it makes a huge difference.

The back seat of this car is not for tall people, or adults really. It's alright for carting the kids around, but I wouldn't plan on taking a group of adults on a road trip or anything. It wouldn't be comfortable for them.

The back seat is fine as long as you're not taking adults for hours long road trips. I've had friends in the back seat for 30-40 minute drives and it does the job. The HRV has more room, but at the cost of the car looking and driving like a piece of crap.

I found the front of the HR-V rather cramped compared to the CX-3. It does have more rear seat room than the CX-3, but the CX-3 isn't quite as bad as it looks. I'm 6'2", and I can fit in the back of the CX-3 thanks to the shape of the roof. I just wouldn't want to go on a long trip back there :)

If I recall correctly the HRV console was wholly touch digital, no radio or a/c knobs or dials. I really like the CX3's way of organizing its center console and the communication monitor. Easier to adjust while driving don't have to *look* to see what you are trying to achieve.

The center arm rest - I went back to the dealership to see one on the show room floor. Once I did, I was not impressed as there is this little slot for your *phone* under the console, and no lift up lid for anything else. Plus I think it was about 300 to install. And if you're short (oops fun size) like me, the seat position renders it not so useful and the space for water bottle/drink holder is harder to access.
