Great design and Features
Test drove the Mazda 3 sedan recently and I was left with a rather good impression of the car. The first thing you'll notice is its elegant yet sporty exterior body shape with led lamps front and rear. The flowing body lines and sharp front and rear end design finished with its twin talipipes, in my opinion, has to be one of the sleekest looking compact sedans. On the inside, it does not disappoint as well. The modern cabin layout with soft touch materials being used generously provides a premium feel that would not be out of place even in luxury brands like a bmw or audi. It is not the most spacious compact sedan out there with a rear passenger space that is good enough for 2 asian sized adults. 3 across would be a squeeze. The driving position is good and the modern looking semi digital instrument cluster is easy to read and looks good as well. The infotainment system though not touch screen is fast and responsive with support for andriod auto and apple carplay. The car is also loaded with all the latest active safetry features like blind spot warning, lane keep assist, lane departure warning, active cruise control, active emergency braking, 360 camera etc. One thing that lets the car down though is the engine. The 1.5L mild hybrid engine will get you from point A to B in a relaxed manner. It doesn't like to be pushed and even if you rev it hard, it won't make the car go any faster due to a lack of power. Best is to drive it like your grandfather which is a shame since the car handles well with it's rather firmish ride and responsive steering. The car could definitely do with a more powerful engine. The brakes are up to the task with a progressive feel providing confidence should you need to stop in a hurry. The 3 is priced competitively against class rivals like the corolla, civic and slyphy but feels like a much more premium car than any of them with all the features you could want in a modern day compact sedan.

Such a beautiful sedan inside out
Went to the showroom to see the Mazda 3 sedan after testing out several other cars in the same price range and I must say that it's quite an impressive car for it's segment. Unless you are an Audiophile who really want the Bose speaker and some other stuff (mainly aesthetic wise except for Adaptive LED headlights, Driver Monitoring & FCTA), otherwise the Elegance variant alrdy has lots of safety tech and features and share a lot in common with the Astina variant so I decided to book it after my test drive. Exterior: The Mazda 3 Sedan is definitely the most beautiful car right now in it's segment imo (Hyundai Avante is also up there but not because it's beautiful but more of eye catching design). The Kodo design language is certainly an upgrade as compared to before. Interior: It also has a very nice and minimalistic design in the interior of the Mazda 3. It looks simple yet premium for it's price and not busy which is to my liking. The infotainment screen is also easy to use with the help of the knob control. The centre LCD display of the instrument cluster also looks good and shows relevant info as well. I also like how Mazda uses leather and mainly soft plastic for the dashboard, doors etc since it gives off a more premium feeling to it instead of hard plasticky feel. The rear legroom isn't that spacious even tho the wheelbase has increased. It's more suitable for 4 pax and 5 pax will be slightly cramped. The boot space is enough for me but it's on the smaller side when compared to it's rival. Ride: The ride was good and seats are comfortable. The handling of the car is pretty good as compared to the other rivals. The engine is refined and the gearbox is pretty smooth. Noise insulation is done pretty good too. One downside is the 1.5L engine is not really powerful. Overall, the Mazda 3 is a car for you if you value exterior, interior and the safety features for the money. If you value spacious cabin and boot space, there are other options out there.

Worst car I've driven.
It's a stable nice looking car. But the the problems are aplenty. My 2016 December M3 deluxe wiper faulty, Reverse gear Vibration during 1-2 years. At 3 yrs 8 mths after warranty, the speedometer failed. Told replacement needed $3K+. O m g, servicing very expensive, wanted to replace engine oil and filter need $350. My mileage only 36500km. Have to buy 2 times service package at $700+, No choice. Poor cabin sound insulation. Poor Resale value at 45K by sgmart. 16/11/2020. It's my 7th car I've owned. Ford escort, Accord, Civic, Bluebird, 120Y, Daihatsu Charade, Lancer (2006-2016) My 10 years Mitsubishi car service at Pandan only $150-170. Now my Mazda3 only 3yrs 11 months. Decided to sell and opt for Altis. (95k) Civic 99k, City 89k, octavia 99k, Kia 81, avante 97k. All under consideration too. No wonder, Now M3 only 88k, cheapest in the range,

Questionable long term reliability.
Test drove the mazda 3 m hybrid and though the interior felt very premium, the engine is not responsive with a slight lag in acceleration. Body roll is also noticeable. Biggest pro is also the biggest con. The car comes with a stylish design and lots of hi tech features but these are at the expense of reliability. A quick Google search will show you owners complaining about rear view mirrors falling off, black dots on infotainment screen, airbag warning lights activating, and the worst of all, the auto emergency brake engaging even when there is no car in front. The special soul red crystal paintwork has issues of spotting or flaking for many disgruntled users online as well. It feels like a car that is worth more than it is selling for and is a good buy assuming everything works down the road. For me, I am more risk adverse so I decided against the car.
