2012 Mazda Mazda3: Case of the Mismatched Font

July 02, 2012

2012 Mazda Mazda3

Okay, so I love most things about the Mazda 3. The handling, the ride quality, the engine. And I think the cabin looks great for what it is. The overall look is simple and straightforward. There's no mistaking it's an economy car, but at the same time, it manages to avoid feeling cheap.

One thing bugs, though: the mismatched fonts shown above. Well, "bugs" might be overstating it. But most other things in the cabin are so well-thought-out that this misstep seems out of place.

Love the font used in the display on the left. So clean, so crisp.
