The Mazda 3 hatchback hasn’t changed much compared to last year’s model. There wasn’t much need to change Mazda to be fair. Except for swallowing his own pride and admitting that this wonderful little hatchback was wrong. But we’ll talk more about that later.
First of all, the basics. After a week on the Mazda3 Turbo’s 250hp hatch, I was convinced that all crossovers on the road would need to be replaced with one of these. Our rental unit is $ 36,010, so it’s also cheaper than what you get. Overall, this is a serious business given the similar price crossover competition. Mazda was able to pack serious luxury into a very small and friendly package. But like any other car, it’s not without its flaws. What Mazda really messed up wasn’t just spending a little money to get it to what it was supposed to be. Japan’s answer to the Volkswagen Golf GTI. As a man, is this approaching? Mazda sells this as an alternative to luxury and luxury crossovers, which are the best hot hatches on the market on this side of the Civic Type R.
Driving Impressions: Where is the Tuner When Needed?
From the moment you step into the Mazda3, you’ll notice that you’re cursing the cruel God who denied the Mazda speed version. It’s hard to exaggerate how annoying and attractive this car is to take the Golf GTI or even the R to school absolutely. Take a gearbox as an example. It shifts up fast enough to temporarily forget that Mazda is still making a manual, but downshifting in manual mode is frustratingly slow. It’s helpful to leave the car “sports”, but you need to listen to the commands properly. This car shouts for a manual, and it’s a shame we can never get it. Next is the engine.
Like GTI’s EA888 Forbanger, it lacks personality. But that’s not something that more aggressive intake and exhaust can’t solve. To be honest, with a simple ECU flash, the output of this car is comparable to the Golf R. It seamlessly provides performance and does it when you instruct it. It pops out of the corner like an AWD bullet and spurs to keep the pedal down thanks to the torque count and the AWD system.
When it comes to the chassis, the car feels stiff, but not when it comes to ride quality. It feels like a lot of effort has been put into creating a stable and balanced machine that will ensure that you get the grip you need to push the limits. I hate pushing all the broken records against you, but its nice chassis means the 3 Series is closer to the original hot hatch. The same is true for ride quality. It’s not hard, but I think it’s definitely sporty. Mazda clearly made an effort to flatten the corners of the Mazda 3, which shows that.
