The Mazda3 has always been a likable car, but now, redesigned for the 2014 model year, its vaulted far ahead of its competition to become simply the best compact car, hatchback or sedan, in the segment. Don’t just take it from us here at Parks Mazda, though—take it from the expert car reviewers over at Edmunds.com, who like the car so much that they at one point compare it to a Mercedes.
Edmunds describes the new Mazda3 as a vehicle that displays “impeccable balance” and features “sharper styling inside and out, improved ergonomics, and plenty of fun-to-drive personality.” The review site literally had nothing bad to say about the 2014 Mazda3, especially in its hatchback incarnation. Thus, sporting such a long list of positives, it’s no wonder that the Mazda 3 grabbed the top ranking in its segment.
While Edmunds favorite thing about the redesigned Mazda 3 is the interior—which is, no doubt, extremely comfortable and convenient—we’re just as enamored with the engine options that provide you ultimate driving comfort on the roads. The 3’s base-model engine is a 2.0L, 155 horsepower package, but you can kick it up a notch to a 2.5L, 184 horsepower option if you choose. The Mazda3 simply out-muscles, out-hustles, and out-bustles all its competition. Come by and check it out today!
