2018 Mazda3: Florida’s Favorite Compact Car

For most shoppers, the idea of getting a compact car that’s actually fun to drive may not seem like a legitimate option. Sure, there are some performance/tuner versions of some compact offerings out there, but for the most part the major manufacturers often come up short when it comes to driving dynamics in their compact offerings.

That’s exactly what makes the 2018 Mazda3 such a unique vehicle.

Sporty handling? Check. Quick off the line? Check. Responsive transmission? Check. The 2018 Mazda3 definitely checks all the boxes when it comes to injecting some actual fun into your daily commute in the North Palm Beach and Royal Palm Beach areas.

Mazda gives you both sedan and hatchback configurations of the car along with three trim levels to choose from:

  • Sport
  • Touring
  • Grand Touring

While every trim in the 2018 Mazda3 lineup comes well-equipped, the Grand Touring definitely is a cut above the rest. It’s got every conceivable feature and amenity you could possibly want, and is the best overall value of the bunch.

Interior Review of the 2018 Mazda3

Mazda employs a unique approach to crafting the interior of their vehicles like the 2018 Mazda3. Passenger comfort is paramount, but so is catering to the needs of the driver. The seats are designed to cradle the driver and all controls are smartly placed for easy access and use by the driver.

Every new model rolling off the assembly line these days comes equipped with the latest and greatest technology options, and the 2018 Mazda3 is certainly no exception in this regard. Premium infotainment options are plentiful and include a seven-inch color touchscreen that features the MAZDA CONNECT™ infotainment system.

Driver assistance technology is also available and includes notable equipment like emergency braking and low-speed front collision systems. From front to back, you’ll find the 2018 Mazda3 is loaded up with tons of comfort, features, and driving dynamics.

  • Titanium Flash Mica
  • Soul Red Metallic
  • Eternal Blue Mica
  • Snowflake White Pearl Mica
  • Deep Crystal Blue Mica

Performance Review of the 2018 Mazda3

  • A 2.0L engine delivering 155 horsepower/105 lb-ft torque.
  • A 2.5L engine providing 184 horsepower/185 lb-ft torque.

The 2018 Mazda3 also features Mazda’s SKYACTIV-VEHICLE DYNAMICS which features G-Vectoring control.
