2012 Mazda 3: Ideal For Grocery Shopping
May 25, 2012
The 3's compact size means it's pretty easy to park in tight spaces. And since we have the hatchback body style, it doesn't get much more convenient for loading grocery bags as that tall opening makes it easy to lift the bags in and out. I had five bags in the photo, and there's certainly room for a few more.
I also like the scuff/scratch protectors on the rear bumper.
