2014 Mazda 3: Serious Seats

May 21, 2014

2014 Mazda 3

Our 2014 Mazda 3's front seats mean business. They're not your usual economy car chairs. Check out those bolsters. And though they're comfortable enough, I wouldn't describe them as soft. Being full leather makes them a little more slippery than I'd prefer when cornering hard. Mazda could have fixed that the same way it did on the last-generation Mazdaspeed3.

Here you can see how that car managed both the appeal of leather and the function of cloth. Still, this isn't the dedicated performance car that one was, so there's nothing wrong with full leather.

I like these seats. They look better and fit my narrow frame better than the Mazdaspeed seats anyway.
