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...

2009 Mazda 3 Review

The BL Mazda3 MPS is not your average grocery-haulin' hatchback. Although it can fill this role quite competently, the car takes no effort to hide its attitude problem, with a large rear spoiler, 18” alloys, twin exhaust, side skirting, and *prominent* bonnet scoop. The latter feeds cool air to the intercooled MZR 2300cc turbocharged four cylinder engine with direct injection...

2014 Mazda 3 Review

You wake up in the morning; groggy and grumpy because you've got yet another day of work ahead of you. You perform your morning rituals and, with a heavy heart and a sigh, walk out the door. And there it stands. Your Mazda3, just as stunning as ever. Still making you feel as excited as you did when you first picked up the keys and took it for a test drive...

2012 Mazda 3 Review

Unfortunately not everyone can afford the latest and greatest sports cars, luxury sedans and SUV's. So for the average petrol head with the average wage and a family, the goal is to find a car that you can enjoy without needing to plunge into inordinate amounts of debt. This brings us to the modern crop of hatchbacks...

2015 Mazda 3 Sp25 ASTIna Review

Unbeatable value for the money. In saying that it feels and drives like a premium European car. Love having it as an everyday drive to and from work. Feels and drives like a hot hatch but with all the comfort and convenience one could hope for. Heads up display, heated leather seats, sunroof, blind spot monitoring, GPS the list goes on and on...
