    For the first time I prefer the looks of the sedan over the hatch. Did not think that would be possible, but for some reason the Mazda3 Hatch does not really float my boat.

    Does this mean you get one for a real test drive? OhBoyOhBoyOhBoy! :D

    The back end is a bit 'jelly bean' looking, but I rather like it. I wish they'd gone with an extended and square back end for a bit more cargo, though. It does match the better competitors on cargo space, though, so I can't complain.

    So, the SV is a sedan-only stripper model, but it still has more standard equipment than my upgraded Fit Sport. Things like floor mats and center armrest. :eyebrow: Honda...

    Boo push button start. K.I.S.S and a key is simple.

    Since the hatchback starts at Sport, I have no complaints about available equipment. Oh, except steel wheels, but I can choose my own replacements cheaper than the Touring upgrade. I don't need any of the other Touring or Grand Touring upgrades. In fact, some I specifically DON'T want, like leather seats, heated mirrors, touch streen, moonroof (save me the headroom and weight), rearview camera.

    2054 rpm is great! Could be better like the Auto's 1688, but it sure beats my Fit's 2850!

    Oh, it has a real spare tire!

    Thank you, Wayne, for the cargo measurements!

    Hi Andrew:

    You are welcome! Took a while to put that spec sheet together given the shoot and detail but it was worth it in the end. I know Dan (WriConsult) likes to dig into the hatch measurements as well.

    And oh how this thing needs a key. It takes over 4-seconds to shut it down!

    The first drive was not bad however.

    Drove to a local embroiderer prior to rush hour yesterday and it offered 76.6 mpg displayed. I was there about an hour and a half with the embroidery work and messing with the audio/media pairing in the parking lot. The drive home during rush provided a decent 60.0 mpg displayed. It handles great, rides pretty good. A bit noisy but nothing out of the ordinary yet. I have not had it over 55 mph so we’ll experience that later today. It is a bit tight in the back seats but lots of room in the hatch.


    Still not sure I like the Mazda Connect Infotainment system with no knobs. Cool looking but a lot of steps to get things done from the Commander Dial in the center console. I also cannot get the RAZR MAXX HD to connect as an Audio device. Pairing for phone use was as easy as I have ever completed but as an Audio and media device, no joy.

    The spare is a standard donut.

    As John said, the hatch looks a little to cab rearward for my tastes. A bit too long of a nose but still attractive and with the hatch, lots of utility back there. The clips for the cargo area shelf are some of the best designed I have seen. Simple on off with no screwing around.

    Interesting! I'm just back from a road trip to western Kentucky and would've commented earlier, but now see Andrew beat me to almost everything I might've said---including thanks to Wayne for the cargo-hold measurements.

    I measured my earlier 323 (GLC) and a couple of later hatches similarly a few years ago. Surprisingly, the between-wheels width is only slightly larger on the new, superficially much larger, 3.

    How was the "Seats Down Depth" measured?---To back of the front seats, or something else? If to seats, at what height, with what adjustment of front leg room?
  7. xcel

    xcel PZEV, there's nothing like it :) Staff Member

    Hi RedlyC94:

    The length measurement for the rear seats down was from the back of the hatch to the top of the rear seatback (center) when laid down.

    Mazda has always been a little tight in the rear legroom in the 3's.

    I wonder what makes the keyless start so laggy. I didn't seem to have that problem when I had the Elantra.


    Fully understand the 60 rpm statement. I am at about 3,000 in my Vue due to the low gearing.
  9. PaleMelanesian

    I measured my Fit for comparison.

    Seat up length34.528
    Seat down length 61.557 (to my 6'2" driver's seat)

    The car itself is wider but the cargo space is the same width. Probably due to the more sophisticated rear suspension - a plus for the Mazda.

    The extra cargo length closely matches the Mazda's longer exterior. At floor level it's closer to a wagon. Too bad the window slopes so much, but I think the long/flat format is potentially more useful than tall/square. Of course long/tall would be even better. ;)

    This is the kind of car I've been waiting for. MPG, cargo, capable handling, reasonable price. I should buy one to encourage more of this.

    Hi George:

    It does! In Japan. :(

    Windy and cold as hell here today so I doubt I will get any steady states done with it before I leave for Smyrna, TN on Sunday morning. Last night’s 70.1 mile RT loop drive in below freezing temps and 10 + mph side winds both out and back ended up at 62.1 mpg.

    Thanks for the cargo floor fore-aft measurement, Wayne. That is the critical dimension to me, and 34.5" isn't bad. Just an inch and a half less than my Touring, so not bad at all. This car would be a great replacement for the Touring (not that we're planning anything, but good to know).

    OMG just went to Mazdas Japan site. The 3 is called the Axela and they even have a Hrybid Sky-G! The 2.2l Sky-D must be FUN to drive with all that power and 2 sequential turbos. They even have a 1.5 Sky-G Option.

    Hi All:

    A few more tidbits given this was my last day with the 14 Mazda3i Grand Touring…

    2014 Mazda3i GT Review

    Front to rear seat room​

    Notice the ergo was a little stretched. Meaning arms are extended a bit to come up with the proper leg extension. And this is with one of the longest telescopic wheel I have ever seen in a compact. Also the seat bottoms were very short. That is not to say it was uncomfortable but the positions was a bit stretched for taller drivers.

    Pedal placement to the centerline was wonderful as was the light clutch and of course the light and very precise short throw shifter.

    Where we get into trouble however is the rear seat room. My knees were buried uncomfortably into the seat back and my thighs were lifted well off the seat cushion bottom. Head room was excellent however.

    Final drive – 54 mph avg. speed, 39.7 miles (45.5 actual miles), and 55.9 mpg displayed (53.8 mpg actual).​

    A non-hybrid/non-diesel rated at 40 mpg highway and capable of almost 55 at 55 is doing pretty good imho.

    Hi All:


    Here is the Speed vs. FE chart. The 40 mpgUS EPA highway rating crossover occurred at 65.74 mph using linear analysis between 65 and 70 mph. This is about normal although temperatures were below freezing and that skews the temperature compensation calculation of - 0.25 mpg/degree F below 70 degrees F to the negative more than it should.

    Hmmm. My Fit is 50@50 in good weather. This is at 46 mpg. I hope / expect that it would do better in good conditions.
  19. RedylC94

    RedylC94 Well-Known Member

    Yes, surprisingly poor results. I expected better than the previous-generation 3 you tested with the Blizzak handicap, better than the Elantra, C-Max, etc. What happened?

    Hi RedylC94:

    Its OEM tires just did not let loose imho. Sticky as all hell in the corners but they did not glide all that well as temperatures fell. As a guess anyway?

    It did respond to DWL and NICE-On’s (FAS, not so much) amazingly well even with the tires as equipped.

    While not a deal breaker, 4th gear had an unusual vibration that could be felt through the stick (not the wheel, seat or car). I reported this to the press fleet individual just before he drove it away so it could be looked at.
