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saving nearly half a litre per one hundred kilometres on the quoted 7.8 litres and saving nearly 2 litres on my outdated automatic ford focus work vehicles...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...

2014 Mazda 3 Sp25 Review

I've owned my Soul Red Mazda 3 SP25 Auto Sedan for 3 months and have covered almost 4000kms. So far the ownership experience has been mostly positive with a few niggling issues that I hope will be ironed out. I selected the 2.5L 138kW over the 2L 114kW because it transforms the car. I originally anticipated buying the Maxx however, despite several test drives was left very underwhelmed by the performance...

2014 Mazda 3 Maxx Review

The Mazda 3 BM Hatch Maxx was the first new car that I have ever purchased. I have had it since May '14 and I have already traveled 12000km (yes, I do drive a lot for work). Since then, it has brought up some gripes, but most of the time I just keep falling in love with it over and over again - probably because it's new...

2014 Mazda 3 Sp25 GT Review

I bought a Mazda 3 SP25 GT with safety pack mid October 2014. The dealer didn't make the process easy & after signing 4 different contracts on different cars, I finally got the above in the stylish Aluminium colour. The leather seats are super comfy & the heated front seats have been really handy on cold mornings...

2014 Mazda 3 Neo Review

Road noise is still there glove box smaller than 12 model, door space small no room for drinks etc, and dash very plain, and CD player a worry because you have to blend down to operate... when driving I hate the fact that I have to blend down to change the CD which could jn turn have a accident , love the Bluetooth works like a charm , love the drive , but the room is very concerning...

2011 Mazda 3 Neo Review

I bought my Mazda3 hatch for work related purpose after considering all the opposition........the Mazda reputation, resale potential and the zoom zoom bit won over. Initial feelings were that it had great turn-in and braking ability, but that the manual gearbox variant had had little development..

2013 Mazda 3 NEO Review

Only owned the car for 6 weeks, the fuel economy doesn't seem too bad , so far I'm averaging 14 km/L or about 100km/7L, would have preferred a slightly sleeker, smaller car, (have the hatch for practicality but would have preferred a lift-back sedan, hate the look of station-wagons) but still like Mazda's edgy, bold styling...
