A new kind of compact
By accord7 on


2014 Mazda 3 i Touring 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 6A)


Forget everything you know about compact cars.
I traded in my 2013 Mazda 3 for the just released 2014, and it's a totally different kind of car.
Interior is fitted with high-end materials for the dash and controls, and feels more like a luxury car.
The handling and suspension are both top rate... you can be aggressive with your drive with good steering feel, and the harshness of the prior model has all been eliminated.
The 2.0 engine is fine for day to day driving, but it lags a little when full power is required.

UPDATE: Three years later now, and the car continues to be excellent. No regrets at all about buying this car and will keep it for years to come.
