2016 Mazda3 5-door

Stockton and Modesto drivers already know what the 2016 Mazda3 reviews have confirmed: this vehicle is something special. Breaking the mold of what to expect from a compact vehicle, the Mazda3 — both as a 4-door sedan and a 5-door hatchback — has stunned automotive critics and everyday drivers alike.

Celebrated Styling

“The 2016 Mazda 3 remains one of the most distinctive cars in the compact-car class.” – The Car Connection

Mazda’s unique “Soul of Motion” design aesthetic is more than just a slogan. Each vehicle is crafted to ensure long graceful lines and a muscular, bold stance. It is just that kind of design that entranced the reviewers over at The Car Connection. The Mazda3 might be a compact, but its sleek styling and aggressive front grille ensure that it remains a cut above the ordinary.

Extraordinary Performance

“A Mazda 3s hatchback achieved a 0-60-mph time of 7.5 seconds, which puts it near the top of its class.” – Edmunds.com

Mazda3 drivers will be able to select between two dynamic engines: either a 2.0L four-cylinder for 155 hp or a 2.5L four-cylinder for up to 184 hp. That places it among the most powerful compacts available for Stockton and Modesto drivers, so it’s no wonder the team at Edmunds.com praised it in their 2016 Mazda3 review.

Unprecedented Features

“Features once reserved for luxury cars that are now in a Mazda3 include blind-spot monitoring and Smart City Brake Support.” – Kelley Blue Book

The 2016 Mazda3 doesn’t look like your average compact or drive like your average compact, and it offers the type of features you’d probably only normally expect from an upper-class sedan. Aside from the features mentioned by Kelley Blue Book, drivers will also be able to take advantage of a heads-up display, adaptive cruise control system, and a premium nine-speaker Bose surround-sound audio system.

The 2016 Mazda3 Reviews Agree That It’s a Top Compact

Few compact models could be expected to offer quite as much across so many diverse areas as the 2016 Mazda3. Now you’ve taken a look at the reviews, make sure you make the trip from Stockton or Modesto to visit Tracy Mazda and take a test-drive.
