Yahoo Autos now rates the 2014 Mazda3 as the best compact car in the U.S.

The all-new 2014 Mazda3 with Skyactiv Technology was listed as the “best compact car” by Yahoo Autos. Yahoo also said that the Mazda3 has plenty peppiness and handles brilliantly for a front wheel drive hatchback and sports an engaging, well executed manual transmission. In Yahoo Auto’s “Car of the Year” competition the Mazda 3 even ranked higher than the Porsche, Jag and the BMW!  Yahoo Auto’s also said “had it not been for the Corvette’s rebirth the Mazda’s elegant Mazda3 would have taken the top spot, impressing our team with its Miata-inspired ‘zoom zoom’ zest”.

There are excellent available features for the Mazda3 that add to the luxury of the vehicle.  Moonroof with one touch open is one of them, this is great if you want fresh air on a nice spring afternoon!  Another luxury available is 6-way power driver’s seat with manual lumbar adjustment as well as heated front seats!  For your convenience you can get the Mazda keyless entry and start system.  This means you do not need to have your key out in order to get into your vehicle, in order to start your vehicle all you have to do is place your foot on the break and then push the start button.  This makes it much easier for you to get where you need to go!  Mazda Connect infotainment system is yet another great feature that Mazda offers for the Mazda3!  When you get the infotainment system you get the 7 inch full color touch screen display, multi function commander control, navigation system, bose 9 speaker surround sound system, SiriusXM satellite radio with a 4 month trial subsricption and SMS text message auto deliver and voice reply!

There are great safety features that are standard on all the trim levels of the Mazda3.  All Mazda3’s are equipped with advanced dual front air bags with crash zone and passenger weight sensors, front side impact air bags and side impact air curtains.  They also all have 3-point seat belts for all seating positions and headrests which are adjustable for all seating positions as well.  In the case of an accident all Mazda3’s also have whiplash reducing front headrests!  This is a great feature.  Some other features that are optional are blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert, smart city brake support, and lane departure warning system.
