Oh wow, so, reviewing cars was sort of shelved for me while I was traveling with my kids as they were acting. So I sort of feel out of touch with technology in cars. I only say I’m out of touch because when we drove the Mazda3,
The Active Driving Display…. WOW this is such a cool feature.
The Active Driving Display looks like a projection on the windshield. I mean I can see it’s not but look at it. It’s right there in the line of sight. It projects critical driving information allowing you to process information faster by keeping your eyes focused on the road ahead.
Of course you want to know how does it drive? I love how it drives, it has some great get up and go, some zoom zoom. It’s super comfortable with comfort features like heated seats and even a heated steering wheel. At least the one I drove did.
Connecting my phone was easy. I mean pairing phones with cars should be easy by now since most cars do it but I still feel I should mention it.
The interior is beautiful.
moon roof was nice
Even with plenty of leg room in the back the trunk had so much space I think I could have loaded kids in the back like a clown car, instead of just having my son back there.
I was really happy with the gas MPG too.

I also really like the little things in cars. I really liked the nob to adjust everything. The MAZDA CONNECT has a touch screen but while driving it is deactivated. So while you are driving you can use the big nob.
Then you can find your navigation, settings, music. You know all those things right there. The multifunction Commander control positioned on the center console offers a seamless way to control the functions displayed on the standard 7” full-color touch-screen—such as audio, hands-free telephone, and the available navigation system.
The music sounds good too through those BOSE speakers.
I don’t usually get into engine details and package deals. You can visit. Mazda to find out more about the Mazda3.
