All the critics agree; the 2015 Mazda3 is one of the sportiest compact hatchbacks you can buy today. If you want to see what all the chatter is about, visit Cutter Mazda Honolulu, just a short drive from Kailua, Hawaii Kai, or Kapolei, HI.
The holistic approach Mazda took with its SKYACTIV®® TECHNOLOGY pays off again and again when you compare the 2015 Mazda3 to its class rivals, like the Hyundai Elantra GT.
The base 2.0-liter Mazda3 four-cylinder has less power than the Hyundai Elantra's motor but, according to EPA estimates, the Mazda gives you an extra 6 mpg city and 7 highway compared to the Elantra GT. Even the Mazda3's sportier 2.5-liter I4 motor is rated at 27 city/37 highway mpg, compared to the Elantra's 24 city/33 highway. With the optional i-ELOOP regenerative braking feature, you can get 29 city/40 highway in the more powerful Mazda. This amazing economy is yours thanks to SKYACTIV®® TECHNOLOGYSKYACTIV®® TECHNOLOGY.
Enthusiasts love the Mazda3; Car & Driver, Road & Track, and Automobile Magazine have all heaped praise on it and given it awards. If you can have a car that is rewarding to drive and gets better fuel economy than its competition, why would you choose anything else? Sure, the Hyundai Elantra GT is a nice car you wouldn't mind driving, but the Mazda3 is a car you'll really want to drive. It's also a Mazda; a brand that has been named the lowest-cost brand to own over a five-year period by Kelly Blue Book.
The compact five-door Mazda3 hatchback is a very space-efficient vehicle, able to haul people and stuff in larger quantities than their small footprint would suggest. While only about 6 inches longer overall, the Mazda3 manages to fit more space inside. The Elantra GT does have a little more front seat headroom, but in hip, leg and shoulder room the Mazda wins. The rear seat is the same, with the Elantra having a tiny bit more shoulder room, but the Mazda3 bettering it otherwise in terms of comfort and style. The secret lies in the Mazda3's slightly longer wheelbase, which leaves more room between the axles for passengers.
With more MPGs, more available power, and more space inside, why wouldn't you be shopping for a 2015 Mazda3? Let Cutter Mazda in Honolulu show you how economical, sporty, and spacious the Mazda3 really is.View Inventory
