The Mazda3 is one of the better examples of the compact segment. To succeed in this segment, it takes a combination of style, value and fuel economy. While the Mazda3 delivers on style and fuel economy, it is no longer the value that it once was. Offered in both 4-door sedan and 5-door wagon body styles the Mazda3 has models ranging from the basic to fully-loaded. Engine choices include a 2.0l four-cylinder engine and a large-displacement 2.5l four cylinder.

What Changed:

The Mazda3 is all-new for 2014. The new model has a longer wheelbase and wider track, but is slightly shorter in height and length than the prior model. Interior legroom is similar, but overall interior volume has increased. Two powertrains are offered: a 2.0l four-cylinder rated at 155-bhp and a 2.5l four-cylinder rated at 184-bhp
