Today the redesigned 2014 Mazda3 was voted number one to Kelley Blue Book’s KBB.com’s 10 Coolest Cars Under $18,000. Hand-selected by the editorial team, Mazda’s dynamic compact car has been featured on the annual list every year of its existence – since 2003.
The top 10 vehicles are chosen based on two criteria – fun-to-drive and fun-to-own – which are significant deciding factors of what the editor freely admit is a very subjective “cool factor.” Each vehicle is available for purchase at a price of $18,000 or less based on Kelley Blue Book’s Fair Purchase Price reports.
Starting at $16,945 MSRP, Mazda3 is all new for the 2014 model year and features the full suite of SKYACTIV TECHNOLOGY, all-new “KODO: Soul of Motion” design facets and new Mazda features such as i-ELOOP (fuel economy) and i-ACTIVSENSE (safety). This award-winning vehicle is one of the most fuel efficient vehicles in its class, available in 4- and 5-door configurations and offered with either a SKYACTIV-G 2.0-liter or 2.5-liter engine. Both six-speed manual and automatic transmissions also are available.
