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...

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...
