2012 Mazda Mazda3 Long Term Road Test


2012 Mazda Mazda3: Interior Aesthetics

Overall, I like our Mazda 3's cabin, and it's holding up pretty well with over 14,000 miles on the odometer and a road trip or two under its belt. The beige-and-black color scheme may not be the most practical, but to my eyes, it works to give things a fairly upmarket look.

I also like the leather used on the seats. It's nicely grained, and it's also proving to be quite durable.

I'm not too crazy about some of the plastics used, though. Specifically, those plastics on the center stack, which look cheap and monotonous.
