When you first purchase a new car, it’s always important to consider how the vehicle will hold its value over time. While many cars lose their value as they get older, there are some that retain their value long past their prime.
According to Kiplinger Personal Finance magazine, the Mazda3 just happens to be one of the vehicles that are valuable even after it is driven off the dealer lot. The magazine recently named this spunky hatchback a Kiplinger Best New Car Value Winner, making it a top choice in the industry.
The winners of the Kiplinger Best New Car Value Awards are chosen based on a combination of performance, value, and safety. The resale, fuel efficiency, front and rear legroom, headroom, and cargo space are all brought into consideration for each segment, including the Kelley Blue Book Fair Purchase Price.
With an EPA-estimated fuel economy rating of 40 mpg highway and a resale value of 55% after 3 years, it comes as no surprise that the Mazda3 is a top contender.
