Autoblog calls 2014 Mazda3 the “Best Driver’s Car in the Compact Car Segment”

October 8th, 2013

2014-mazda3-sedan-fdAutoblog has called the 2014 Mazda3 the ‘best driver’s car in the compact car segment,’ and we at Borgman Mazda are inclined to agree. Just like the CX-5 and Mazda 6, we’re loving the integrated, ground-up design. Read a few excerpts of Jeremy Korziniewski’s review, then check out the page, complete with video interview, at

Here are some excerpts:

“Mazda has engineered its latest crop of vehicles – namely the CX-5, Mazda6 and its smaller sibling and subject of this test, the Mazda3 – from the ground up. Absolutely everything about the Mazda3 is refined for 2014, from its chassis to its engines and everything in between, and it was done in a completely new and holistic way. Every component, subcomponent and stamping required to bolt and weld together an automobile was rethought to ensure the Mazda3 has what it takes to compete with established benchmarks…”Autoblog reviewer Jeremy Korziniewski writes.

“The 2014 Mazda3 looks awfully pretty in pictures, but its shapes are even better when viewed up close and personal. As the latest car to benefit from Mazda’s Kodo design language, the 3 draws plenty of inspiration from the CX-5 and Mazda6, both of which we think are rather attractive vehicles.”

“…The 3 is the best driver’s car in the compact car segment. Steering is a delight, aided by a rack-mounted electronic power steering unit and front-end geometry that is exactly the same as that of the well-regarded RX-8 and the current MX-5 Miata…”
