Review Summary
It’s already fantastic to look at, handy to drive and fairly well proportioned compared to its rivals, and this minor update just freshens things up ahead of the new year.

Review Summary
The ride, build quality and sense of quality engineering all shine through the stylish bodywork, and it should be on anyone's C-segment shortlist.

With style and poise, the Mazda 3 is a great family hatchback to drive and own, which is also affordable.

Review Summary
It's a stylish-looking car, thanks to the company's ‘Kodo’ design language, but the interior needs to be more interesting.

Review Summary
A traditional Mazda strongpoint (handling) the new 3 is no exception to the rule, and for those looking to enjoy rather than endure their time behind the wheel this family hatchback is a sound choice.

Buy without regret: the 3 drives as well as it looks. Very nicely balanced indeed.

What's nice about the Mazda3 is that it does things differently from the norm, with its big yet efficient engines and an obvious tilt towards enjoyable driving.

Review Summary
The Mazda 3 is one of the best in its class. It's stylish and well equipped, although its refinement is poor.
