Car Profiles - Mazda 3 Sedan

MAZDA 3 SEDAN

Following the success of its bigger brother (Mazda 6), the 3 has sleek styling plus Mazda's technology such as the i-STOP and i-ELOOP plus full SkyActiv construction in the house all for a reasonable price and is backed by local distributor's generous YOJIN3 program. Too bad the seats are cramped at the back.

The Good: Excellent handling, ingenious technology upping the ante in the ever competitive compact class. 
The Bad: Snug back seats. 

Price Range: P998,000-P1,248,000
