2012 Mazda Mazda3: Size Is Relative

 2012 Mazda Mazda3

I was amused a few days ago after parking our Mazda 3 for some shopping and looking at its lot mates. The 3 is quite practical thanks to its hatchback body style, and rarely do I find it limiting or "small." But clearly it is "small" when parked next to an M-Class and a CR-V, neither of which is exactly "big" in the automotive world.
