Mazda 3: One of the most distinctive cars in the compact-car class

A look at the engine bay.

Even though it's not the quickest, or the most powerful car in its class, the Mazda 3 is one of just a handful of driver's cars in the segment along with the Ford Focus and the VW Golf that you'll get a satisfying performance whether it’s the 1.6 or 2.0 litre layout with SkyActive technology.  In any combination, they bring satisfying performance and better responsiveness than most compact cars.

The Mazda 3 has its primary appeal in driving fun. Whether you're talking about the hatchback or sedan, the design, or the experience in the driver's seat, the 2016 Mazda 3 remains one of the most distinctive cars in the compact-car class.

While it might not grab as much attention as offerings from some larger brands, the Mazda 3 has a compelling combination of efficient engines, design flair, safety, value, and driving precision should earn it a place on almost every shopper's small-car list.

Mazda has also made big strides in the 3's infotainment offerings and the Mazda Connect system uses a large, colorful, high-contrast touchscreen that sits atop the dash for easy viewing. 

Most aspects of the driving experience are very satisfying—the 3 is far more athletic than your typical compact car.  The suspension and dynamics are excellent in tight hairpins, and a lot of ride harshness (and noise) still makes its way into the cabin compared to other cars in this class.
