Available in a sedan and a hatchback model, the Mazda 3 is one of the best all-around small cars available in Canada.
Interior and Design: The well-designed interior is comfortable, although this small car is not designed for more than two adults in the back seat. Driver head and leg room are both plentiful, and the seats are comfortable. As with many cars in its class the Mazda 3 does have some road noise, but the ride is smooth.
Handling and Power: The Mazda 3 offers two options for power; the SkyActiv engine provides 155 HP in a 2.0 liter engine, while the available 2.5 liter engine ups the power to 184 HP. The car is agile and responsive, and performs impressively in road tests.
Fuel Economy: The Touring model averages an overall fuel efficiency of 25 US MPG, or 9.41 L/100 km, on the 2.5 liter engine, which is less impressive than some in its class but a compromise for the more powerful engine. Giving up a little power will get you 32 US mpg., or 7.32 L/100 km, a much better number for this class.
Overall: The Mazda 3 Touring is one of the best small cars on the market, with an excellent combination of agility, speed, comfort and ride quality.
