The Mazda 3 has always been regarded by critics as one of the most fun to drive cars in its class, and the all new third generation model is no exception. Automobile Magazine announced their 2014 All-Stars winners today, and the compact Mazda found its way onto their list.
New Skyactiv technology was developed to help the Mazda 3 be fuel efficient while still being fun to drive. By engineering the chassis, engine and transmission to work together seamlessly, the 3 return excellent fuel economy for its class, as observed by Automobile Magazine. They also complimented the Mazda on have more poise than before, and for having a nice interior that rivals more expensive cars. In their words, “compact cars aren’t supposed to feel this sophisticated, but the Mazda 3 does.”
Along with another all-star pick, the RAM 1500, the Mazda is a car that doesn’t break the bank, is extremely practical and still fun to take out on the back roads on occasion. Being in the company of Porsches, Jaguars and Audis says a lot about the compact Mazda 3.
