2014 Mazda 3: I Like It

August 19, 2014

2014 Mazda 3

I like small feisty cars. I also like big cars. OK, I like cars.

Dan posted recently about how the 2014 Mazda 3 reminds him of his Acura Integra. As the proud owner of a last-gen Integra, I agree in some ways. It's small, sporty, sits low, enjoys a curve, and has the versatility of a hatchback.

The Mazda 3 has more power than the Integra ever had, but the Acura was more fun to drive. Unfortunately I don't get to air it out that often anymore. When I first moved to California, I loved taking it exploring. It's so fun on twisty canyon roads. It's a shame it was discontinued. I still see so many of them driving around L.A.

For those of you who missed out on the cult hatchback, I think the Mazda 3 is the closest thing you can get in today's market to the Integra.

Have you driven a Mazda 3? Or an Integra?
