Are you looking for a small sedan or hatchback that does more than just serve as basic transportation? The versatile 2018 Mazda 3 offers powerful yet fuel-efficient engines, sporty driving dynamics and a comfortable ride. Read more to learn what else makes the 3 one of our top choices.
Whether you're talking about the hatchback or sedan, the design, or the experience in the driver's seat, the 2018 Mazda 3 remains one of the most distinctive cars in the compact-car class.
The Mazda 3 is a standout in terms of styling and design, and its long hood and "cab-back" design really cast it in a different light compared to most other compact cars. A sweeping shoulder line slows gracefully along the body side, and a more slanted, fastback roofline on the hatchback ends in what we see as a somewhat softer, less distinctive rear-end treatment. At its best, this combination of the aggressive front grille, crisp edges, gentle curves, and hunkered-back cabin altogether makes the car look taut and sports-car influenced.
