Mazda MAZDA3 Midsize | Compact



  • Best zoom-zoom for the dollar
  • Fun to drive
  • Impressive looking interior
  • Hatchback utility with 5-door model
  • Very small navigation display
  • Goofy grin for the grille
  • Limited cabin and trunk space
Ruling: Some may grimace at the smiling front grille, but it's hard to ignore the fun driving experience and affordable price tag of a sedan/hatchback that provides a high quality feel.

The 2011 Mazda3 is available as a four-door sedan and a four-door hatchback. The hatchback has a roomier cargo area, and is great for buyers who haul more stuff. The sedan and hatchback are available in i and s trims. The s trims are more powerful, and feature the 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 167 horsepower and 168 pound-feet of torque.

Because the Mazda3 was just redesigned for 2010, the 2011 Mazda3 is almost identical to the 2010. Reviewers agree that the Mazda3 maintains its reputation as a zippy, fun car with a high-quality feel that appeals to buyers who want a touch of sass in their commute but also want to stick to a budget.
