Highly-anticipated and much-speculated, the 2014 Mazda3 is all-new, representing the third generation of Mazda’s best-selling vehicle worldwide. As the first vehicle in North America to launch SKYACTIV® TECHNOLOGY, Mazda’s breakthrough engineering and manufacturing philosophy, the 2012 Mazda3 achieved the new segment-defining number of 40 miles per gallon (mpg) with nary a vehicle evolution but a definitive engineering revolution.
SKYACTIV TECHNOLOGY presented impressive numbers on paper with its high fuel economy to fun-factor performance ratio being 1:1, and met or bettered those figures in real-world experience. For 2014, Mazda3 not only receives the full suite of SKYACTIV technologies but a complete KODO “Soul of Motion” makeover as well as offers all-new active safety technologies with i-ACTIVSENSE and introduces an all-new “heads-up” HMI/infotainment system known as MAZDA CONNECT™.
Below, Melissa, the Everywoman Driver gives you her thoughts and driving impressions after spending a full week with the 2014 Mazda3.
