Mazda 3 Owner Car Reviews

2015 Mazda 3 SP25 Review

Performance in the Mazda 3 SP25 is outstanding, considering the size of the engine and the weight of the car. The space in the boot is adequate for one suitcase, but for two adults going on an extended trip the rear seat had to be used for the second bag. This ultimately limits the number of persons going on holiday in this car to two...

2009 Mazda 3 Sp25 Review

Bought this car second hand at around 50,000 km for $15k. It is an absolute steal for a car that is extremely well balanced. It's a comfortable cruiser when you want it to be and a corner carving Hot Hatch the next second. The chassis on this car has the perfect balance between comfort and sportiness. The driving experience is amazing for a car at this price point...

2013 Mazda 3 Neo Review

After 35,000k's, My 2013 BL Mazda 3 Neo has been an absolute gem. Bought as a run-out, the car came packed with Bluetooth and alloy wheels, at the time it was a steal for a fraction under $20,000. As my first new car the Mazda has done all I could ask of it. The 3 is zippy around town living up to Mazda's Zoom Zoom moto...

2015 Mazda 3 Sp25 Review

Purchased in January I have just ticked over 10,000km so thought an appropriate time to provide my review. Before buying the SP25 I was considering other cars in this segment such as the VW golf and the Hyundai i30SR. My criteria was made up by the following 5 factors: 1. ride and handling 2. engine and transmission combination 3. design 4...

2013 Mazda 3 Sp25 Review

So the SP25 was a New Year / Repaired Hail Damage / End of Model / my Focus XR5 Turbo is costing me too much to run purchase, which, in essence, is a much better proposition for the driving I do (2 -3 times a week Brisbane to Sunshine Coast and back, plus commuting around Brisbane). As we are almost at the end of the warranty, and I have been debating what to do next, thought it opportune to offer a review...

2015 Mazda 3 Sp25 GT Review

I bought this car to replace my Mk6 VW Golf when its lease ended. The Golf had served me well, but difficulties getting a decent trade in and the poor reputation put me off rolling that dice again. This time around I wanted low risk, good value and some reasonable prospect of decent resale...

2014 Mazda 3 Sp25 GT Review

From the day I picked her up, I've never had a problem. You can tell Mazda have really worked hard to make sure this car lasts, I've driven other cars and you feel like if you push it a little it will fall apart, but never with the Mazda. Pushing hard, there is a bit of understeer, but that's to be expected from FWD car. It has plenty of up and go as well...

2015 Mazda 3 Sp25 Review

Mazda SP25 6 Speed Manual Sedan - This is the best small car I have owned. It actually feels like a larger car and in sedan guise, is sometimes difficult to tell apart from its larger cousin, the Mazda 6. This car is an ideal all rounder, the 2.5 litre engine pulls strongly from lower gears, in fact a lot of driving from left and right turns into side streets can be achieved in third gear...

2015 Mazda 3 Sp25 GT Review

I never considered a Mazda until I took the 3 for a test drive. I was impressed with the quality fit and finish and the technology in this car. It has everything I need. The engine has more than enough power for spirited drives and drives smoothly for everyday driving. The seats are very comfortable and supportive. Love the sound system...

2014 Mazda 3 Sp25 GT Review

What first attracted me to this car was the look of the sedan. This is the better proportioned vehicle of this design philosophy. Considering the same engine is used in the Mazda 6, this model provides a better performance and economy which is more than adequate without being considered a sport machine. Economy around town is 9 litres which will drop to 7...

2014 Mazda 3 Review

A cynic, by definition, is someone who is skeptical by nature, especially when, say, a car company comes out with a new model that promises to be all things to all people and is lapped up by the public in large droves, which is more or less what happened when the latest Mazda3 was released...
