Mazda Mazda3 competitors' 0-60

The Mazda 3 was built to compete with top four-door hatchbacks like the Toyota Corolla and Honda Civic. It’s fun to drive and offers sharp handling on the road. Its fuel economy ranks high amongst other leading sedans.

The 2018 model offers the best driving experience in its class and is the quickest. The cargo space is moderately ample, providing storage for a couple of bags.

The Mazda 3 comes with three engine choices: the optional 1.5-liter, the 2.0-liter, and the 2.2-liter engines. The optional 1.5 liter-engine has fuel economy, emissions, and pricing that are closely similar to those of the larger 2.2-liter. Because of this, Mazda has no intention of selling very many 1.5s. The 2.2-liter produces about 280lb of torque that can be powered at 148 bhp. It exhibits a petrol-like feeling with its enthusiastic engine revolutions but still maintains diesel-like emissions and fuel economy. The 3 has a competent chassis, one that gives you an enjoyable ride since the engine does not have to work so hard to push it around.

The 2.2-liter engine takes 7.0 seconds to hit the 60mph mark. This comes with better control and handling. The 3 offers a comfortable, roll-free and stable drive even at the sharpest of corners. The steering is quick, accurate and well-weighted. Mazda’s engineers have been able to maintain a balance between comfort and joy without compromising agility. This vehicle offers owners of the boring Ford Focus a new and better alternative.

The exterior is quite striking but comes with a not-so-impressive interior. There are a couple of ordinary-looking instruments and a sizeable compulsory color screen at the center console. It’s also not very easy to handle as the menu carries a few options that can complicate the execution of simple tasks. The steering wheel offers a sporty feeling.

Unfortunately, the back prioritizes style over comfort, offering much less headroom and squeezed space. This isn’t made any much better by the flimsy center armrest. The quality of material used to make the dash top is moderate but appears tacky. Very little has also been done to reduce tire, wind and road noise that gets into the cabin.  

The Mazda 3, however, tries hard to improve on the quality of the ordinary compact car. The engine delivers a satisfactory drive which ranks pretty high amongst its competitors. The tuned six-speed automatic is quicker than the standard six-speed manual transmission. The latter does, however, offer more engagement.

There’s overall superior handling that comes with the 3, making it hard to resist. There’s also an impressive list of safety and top-notch technological features. It has gone ahead to earn 5 stars from the NHTSA and IIHS for its safety features. The good looks, high-quality interior and driving satisfaction, will bring a lot of joy to many of its drivers.
