Driving enjoyment has long been the defining feature of Mazda's Mazda3 compact sedan and 4-door hatchback. That's still true today, though the current Mazda3 is a safer, more refined car than its forebears. It's also more spacious and comfortable, though its rear seat is less accommodating than in some rivals. Compensation comes in the form of high-end cabin materials that make the Mazda3 feel like a premium-brand car. Four-cylinder engines provide energetic performance, and all-wheel drive is available for buyers in the far north. The Mazda3 exhibits precise steering and will put a smile on your face.
