Why Does Everyone Love the Mazda3 So Much?

Why Does Everyone Love the Mazda3 So Much

Everybody has their own views about cars, just like with all things, but the Mazda3 is undeniably beloved around the world. While it’s been Mazda’s top seller for years, it only seems to grow in popularity as the model receives updates and tweaks.

Let’s look at some of the reasons why so many people love the 2019 Mazda3.

Sporty Handling

The Mazda3 sedan and hatchback both feature surprisingly sporty handling. All Mazdas are designed with the spirit known as “Jinba ittai,” a Japanese phrase equivalent to “horse and rider as one,” and the Mazda3 embodies this philosophy as much as any car. You’ll love the way it cruises on turns, plus the way it passes trucks on the highway.

The new 2019 Mazda3 includes Mazda’s famous Skyactiv-Vehicle Architecture, which means it’s the most responsive Mazda3 yet. This year features a particularly evolved form of Skyactiv technology, which results in the quietest cabin Mazda has ever offered. Unnecessary noise and vibration has been dramatically reduced, which will inspire a calm, tranquil feeling when you’re behind the wheel. It’s hard to summarize in a short space, so read this passionate car blog by real auto enthusiasts to get more information.

Safety Features

The new 2019 Mazda3 has an available i-Activ All Wheel Drive system that brings transformative modern safety technology to a historically beloved car.

This technology essentially gives each car its own set of eyes and cat-like reflexes which keeps it safe. Scanners in the car check the road 200 times a second to assess the road condition, and the car itself can respond accordingly based on this assessment. For example, if the cameras detect that the road is icy or rainy, the car will automatically add extra torque to the back wheels as needed to prevent slipping.

Perfect Vehicle for Cities and Getaways

Both the Mazda3 Sedan and Hatchback were designed to be the perfect cars for both urban environments, and for road trips. They are both relatively compact enough to park downtown easily and navigate dense traffic smoothly.

Yet they both have considerable storage capacity for when you need to get out of town, especially the 5-Door Hatchback. Plus its safety features don’t only benefit those in the car, but those outside it.

The Smart Brake City Support can detect objects ahead at low speeds. It readies the brakes, anticipating the driver will want to stop. If no driver action is taken then the car stops on its own. This is useful for stop-and-go traffic common to cities.  The car also has blind spot monitoring, where a light will appear in your side view mirror if it detects that a car is in your left or right blind spot.

Sometimes, updating a beloved model of the car carries the risk that the changes won’t be perceived as improvements by fans of the old model. Thankfully, that was not at all the case with the 2019 Mazda3! Mazda was careful to only make changes that people were sure to love. As a result, fans of the old Mazda3 already love the 2019 model even more.
