However the only thing Im not completely satisfied with is the acceleration. Ford contributed the suspension design and sophisticated electronics. Sure the carpet is thin. It's practical and economical like a Japanese car. A racy three-pod instrument cluster, red dash lighting and long list of standard and optional features make the Mazda3 feel like a high-priced sports sedan.
While they look good, the pattern is not as aggressive as the old wheel. We can't help reiterate what a great bargain the Mazda3 represents, a fact reinforced when looking at the car's excellent resale value. Interior quality is very good, though the cabin is noisy and the rear seat somewhat tight. Overall, the car is in great shape, minus a few careless mistakes by the previous owner. I get all fluids replaced and then some on schedule.
Its slow and a it sounds like its struggling. The ride is firm yet compliant and the cabin is relatively quiet. I shift as smoothly as possible. If you want a car thats good in gas, reliable, and handles good then this is for you. The five-door hatchback is like the high-fashion station wagons from European manufacturers, offering the practicality of the five-door configuration with an emphasis on a premium driving experience, which means plenty of luxury features plus plenty of driving enjoyment. And it's available with a surprising list of comfort and luxury features just like an American car.
Gas mileage is approx 28 mpg , could do better, but it handles so well. The interior is nicely furnished and features a new infotainment system whereby drivers interact with a screen exclusively through a rotary knob. The interior is well laid out and I like the grand touring options leather, Bose stereo, sunroof. Still, while the interior is upgraded, the rear seating area remains a bit tight and road noise is somewhat pronounced.

Anti-lock brakes with electronic brake force distribution and brake assist are for all s-models and optional for the i-model sedan. The interior and exterior styling is a bit young for me, but apart from that I'd recommend this car to anyone. The sedan has the traditional appearance of a four-door, five-passenger car. And Mazda engineered the four-cylinder engines and then tuned the complete car at its test track in Japan. The five-door model allows you to lug around bulky items that would not easily fit in the sedan's trunk.
It's space-efficient and exciting to drive like a European car. A new front end features a revised grille and headlamp treatment with a large rectangular air intake and, on s trims, integrated rectangular fog lights. After a week with a Mazda3 S Touring, I'm pretty. The secret ingredient for a faster, more thrilling Mazda3 is the 2. It accelerates like a snail until 3000 rpm, and then the car comes alive. A drop down menu will appear.
Front-seat occupants will find head- and legroom generous, although the passenger's seat does not offer lumbar support, nor is it height-adjustable. New features include a rear-seat center armrest with built-in cup holders, an audio auxiliary input jack and an additional 12-volt power outlet. The four-door hatchback has a good sized trunk, while the hatchback offers more flexibility; both have a somewhat cramped rear seat for the class. Even though the Mazda3 is a front-wheel-drive car, it exhibits very little torque steer.

As far as comfort goes its pretty good and the handling is excellent.
There is an available Driver Monitoring System that watches the driver's eyes, mouth, and face to look for fatigue, and sounds an alert to warn the driver. The sole engine is a carryover 2. The paint is as good as new. It's now three years into the compact Mazda3's model run, and Mazda still can't keep up with demand. I have encountered no reliability issues thus far. Engine and manual transmission are smooth. The Mazda3 is built in Japan, yet beneath the skin you'll find evidence of engineering from around the world.
