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...

2013 Mazda 3 Maxx Sport Review

Popularity. A Latin term, meaning common or well-liked. Such words can be said of the previous generation Mazda3, which was the outright sales champion in 2012. Chances are you know someone that owns one, or you’ve seen a couple of them on your daily commute. But, is the popularity justified? I’ve spent almost three years with one, and I’m inclined to say that the masses pretty much got this one right...

2009 Mazda 3 Mps Review

The 2009 BL Mazda3 MPS makes use of the same MZR 2300cc turbocharged four cylinder engine with direct injection as seen in the earlier BK Mazda3 MPS and the AWD Mazda6 MPS. It is available only with a six-speed manual transmission. Performance is certainly the MPS’ strongest point, and is sure to keep the enthusiast driver well entertained on every journey...

2010 Mazda 3 Sp25 Review

Bought Max 3 sp25 two weeks ago downsized from Territory. Absolutely noticed how economic it is. Looks sporty and gets people's attention. Love all the dash and inbuilt sat nav. Find everything is easy to use and set up. Hatch area is generous could use another light in side wall. Rear passenger area is tighter than expected and only comfortable for two passengers...

2014 Mazda 3 SP25 Review

I purchased my Mazda 3 SP25 auto hatch in May 2014. Before I proceed with my review, I think it's important to understand how and what I use the car for. I live with my partner in Canberra with our two dogs and drive mainly to work and to Sydney a few times each year. The car's computer reports an average fuel consumption of 7...

2015 Mazda 3 SP25 Review

How did I end up with a Mazda 3 SP25? Let me start from the beginning. I needed a car that was more economical and practical. Also, I wanted a car with more gadgets and performance than what my old Honda Accord could offer. I had recently taken a holiday and drove a Nissan Pulsar hatch as a hire car - I quickly marked that off that list as I didn’t like it at all...

2014 Mazda 3 Neo Review

Bought this car as a demonstrator, with 1500 kms on it Since it is a demo, it comes with the OPTIONAL safety pack, auto-dimming mirrors, smart city braking and BDM. Blind spot monitoring system comes in useful during heavy rain, make switing lanes a lot more easier and less frightening. (I am a newbee to driving, sorry) Trunk is spacious yet the hinges kind of get into the way sometimes...

2014 Mazda 3 SP25 GT Review

I purchased my 2014 Mazda 3 in February 2014. It was the first SP25GT off the lot. My initial response was that it was smooth to drive but then after driving for some time I found that the suspension is way way too harsh for anyone with lower back problems. So if you read this and you have back issues think about buying those lower models with 16" alloys and 60 profile tyres...

2015 Mazda 3 Sp25 Astina Review

Just done 1000 km and love driving my sp25 :) the engine is very responsive. It's lively acceleration really puts you into the back of your comfy seat. Overtaking on country roads is a breeze. Took it on a return trip from Tamworth to Coffs Harbour and it handled the trip beautifully. My daughter (18) sat in the back the whole way and loved it! She is short however...

2013 Mazda 3 Neo Review

The Mazda 3 surprised me upon initial test drive. I originally steered clear due to the price of mazdas and had heard the mazdas were quite thirsty. The car immediately surprised me as i am achieving better then quoted fuel economy, saving nearly half a litre per one hundred kilometres on the quoted 7.8 litres and saving nearly 2 litres on my outdated automatic ford focus work vehicles...

2014 Mazda 3 Sp25 Review

I have a 2014 sp25 manual in white, I upgraded from a 2011 neo manual. In comparison between the 2, The sp 25 is nicer to drive, a more refined and enjoyable driving experience, the power delivery suits my driving, it cruises around in the daily traffic with ease, not putting a foot wrong & so smooth...
