When you are looking at a 2018 version of Mazda 3, you are looking not only at fuel economy but a promise of style, agility, comfort, connectivity and performance as well. The question that comes to the mind is whether this magnificent beast with its superb performance and head-turning style is an overkill or is the Mazda 3 good for daily commute? However, when it comes to taking your car, the foremost concern that crops up is the cost economy and here is where the shoe pinches unless your vehicle is highly fuel economic like the Mazda 3. The experts at the dealership advertising for the Riverside Mazda dealership say, yes it is. If you want to be surer, you can read below to know why they say so.
Superb Body Build
One of the most noticeable features of the Mazda 3 is its smooth flowing design depicting motion even when the vehicle is at a standstill. The body comes in two variants – a highly refined 5-door hatchback made for space and adventure and a classy luxurious 4-door sedan that’s perfect for everyday driving. Both the variants are high on style statement, driving comfort, luxury, performance and safety. The Mazda 3 comes in 3 trim levels, the Sport, Touring and Grand Touring with choice of auto or manual transmission modes.
Both the variants look similar in front with the long hood and smooth roofline and end gracefully in the rear with the extended bonnet in the sedan and a gracefully styled rear side in the hatchback that doesn’t end abruptly like most cars in the hatchback segment. The available 18-inch alloy wheels strike perfect balance.
Stylish and Purposeful Interiors
The inside of the Mazda 3 is uncompromising when it comes to luxury and styling. Every nook and corner in the Mazda 3 is carefully crafted and demonstrates human centric design philosophy of the Mazda brand. The leather wrapped steering wheel and perforated dual-stitched leather trimmed upholstery in the Grand Touring gives an elevated feeling, but so does even the premium cloth trimmed seats of the Sports trim which are carefully contoured to fit perfectly with your body lines for that extreme driving comfort.
Balanced Mileage & Performance
The experts at the Riverside Mazda dealership say, if your requirement revolves around finding the perfect ride for daily commute, the Mazda 3 with its amazing fuel economy in all its trims could be your ideal choice. The Sport trim features a 2.0 liter, 16-valve 4-cylinder DOHC engine which uses a 6-speed auto or manual transmission to provide 155 horsepower with 150 lb-ft of torque. With all this power and performance, you get an amazing EPA estimated city/highway mileage of 28/37. The 2.5-liter engine on the Touring and Grand Touring churns out a powerful 184 horsepower with 185 lb-ft of torque and still gives an EPA estimated 27/36 mileage which is quite higher than many other vehicles in this class.
All this along with Mazda’s own SKYACTIV Vehicle Dynamics with G-Vectoring control give you that balanced ride even on highly winding road routes to give you that comfortable ride ideal for daily commute.
