Mazda is a quality automotive brand that has been around for nearly 100 years, and they keep putting out top vehicles on the market. This has continued with the latest award given to the 2015 Mazda3 and Mazda6: Car and Driver’s 10 Best Award. That is a prestigious award that only ten cars can get each year. And Mazda is the only manufacturer with two vehicles on this list! That is truly an incredible feat and proves what type of high quality vehicles Mazda puts out year after year. More recently the Mazda3 received even more attention from Car and Driver being chosen to have the best car interior for under $30,000!With any other manufacturer you’d have to spend upwards of $40,000 to get the interior and technology associated with the 2015 Mazda3 at Preston Mazda. But this Mazda3 is a model of simplified excellence; an affordable, everyday car that’s stimulating to operate and pleasing to sit in. This money saving sedan/hatchback will range from just over $15,000 for the base model and stay under $26,000 for the top Grand Touring model at Preston Mazda in Hurlock, MD. The pricing is fantastic if you consider all the bang you get for you buck at that top model level. The Technology Package is headlined by the i-ELOOP regenerative braking, lane departure warning, and forward collision warning systems. These are all very technologically advanced systems that aren’t included in a lot of cars yet today. i-ELOOP stands for Intelligent Energy Loop and what it does is continuously recover kinetic energy as the vehicle decelerates and reuses it as electricity for things such as AC and lighting.
The technology that is present on the dashboard of the 2015 Mazda3 Grand Touring is incredible. The large, 7-inch touchscreen display will probably be the first thing that catches your eye. It is meant to be directly in the line of sight of the driver in order to prevent drivers from having to look down to see the time, change the radio station, or even see how fast they are going – as the screen has the ability to display a digital speedometer reading. If that screen isn’t the first thing to catch your eye, then the knob-type controller on the center console sure will be. It resembles something out of a much more expensive car such as an Audi or BMW. This knob is very intuitive and can be used to control the screen if you don’t feel like touching the screen.
The seats are even comfortable in the front and back. Both have a sporty contour to them to cushion you perfectly. The upholstery and even the interior panels give you a very expensive feel in an affordable car. This car, in either sedan or hatchback, is worth checking out on our website at www.prestonmazda.com or coming into our dealership at the corners of Maryland Routes 318 and 331.
