Mazda may be better known for its lovable MX-5 Miata sports car or its impressive lineup of SUVs, but the Mazda3 is in many ways the automaker's best offering — its least expensive and most fuel-efficient product. It’s also the best-selling Mazda in the world, with more than five million Mazda3 vehicles sold since 2004.
The 2018 Mazda3 compact car is available as a four-door sedan or a sexy and versatile five-door hatchback. It’s one of the most fun-to-drive cars in the extremely competitive compact class, and with its EPA-rated 37 mpg on the highway, it’s quite fuel-efficient. Now in its third generation, the popular Mazda3 also wins acclaim for its high-quality interior and inspired style. It competes with the Honda Civic, Toyota Corolla, Hyundai Elantra, Kia Forte, Chevrolet Cruze, Ford Focus, Subaru Impreza and Volkswagen Golf and Jetta.
