        Its a joke. The Mazda 3 looks like a prettier Tesla Model 3 (compare)

  • HaltestelleLuitpolthafen

    The Mazda3 is best in class.

      And they already had a recall implying that the wheels can fall off.

    Where is the Skyactiv 2 engine?

  • Kyle Newberry

    Ik some ppl hate this design, but it’s original and stunning. Funny how people loved the concept, and they did a near production version of it, ‘but it’s not good looking’ lol

    • Dredd2

      the serial isnt that bad, but there are some differencies from the concept. anyway, i think the serial could be better with 19-20″ wheels with low ET and painting the windows frames with black. otherwise a concept like rear bumper would be great too.

  • Dennis Scipio

    That’s almost the price of a Midsize car with the base car.

  • Giziclown

    Put 2,5T in it, at least in US.

  • SteersUright

    Its a damn nice hatch with a pathetic engine in a market that has little appreciation for hatchbacks in general. Either way, I wish Mazda much luck with it as they make some of the best to drive economy cars.

  • HaltestelleLuitpolthafen

    Yeah, we all know that most sales = best though.


  • Danny Boy

    Right……And it just baffles me as to why this c a r doesn’t sell.
    I really seldom see commercials, and the one that’s out there is boring as f…! Toyota markets the Corolla as a sporty, fun compact, which is the most false narrative ever, but the commercial is played so often that everyone believe that it’s the must have. I kind of miss the zoom zoom motto!
    I often wonder as i pass by a Kia, Sentra, Elantra etc..why they chose that car over the 3? It’s just such a great car that no one wants!
