If you are shopping for a stylish, affordable, and compact hatchback, why settle for the ordinary when you can have the extraordinary 2015 Mazda3? Cutter Mazda Honolulu can show you all the features that make the Mazda3 such a standout, just stop in for a test drive. We are just a short drive from Kailua, Hawaii Kai, or Kapolei, HI and many other O'ahu areas.
Mazda has always been synonymous with sporty cars, and the Mazda3 is one of their best offerings yet; see how it fares against the Nissan Versa Note.
Doesn't everyone love getting something for nothing? Even the base 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine standard in the Mazda3 gives you 50 more horsepower than the single motor the Versa Note offers, a 1.6-liter I4. In the Mazda3, you get 155 horsepower, vs 109 in the Note. According to EPA estimates, both of these hatchbacks get 40 mpg on the highway, but the Mazda is much more fun to drive. With the 2.5-liter four-cylinder motor, which makes 184 horsepower in higher trim Mazda3 models, you can also equip the optional i-ELOOP regenerative braking feature. This great technology paired with the Mazda3's available automatic transmission can get you 28 mpg city and 39 mpg highway. This economy is all thanks to Mazda's new SKYACTIV® integrated chassis, motor, transmission systems.
Compared to the Versa Note, the Mazda3 hatchback is bigger inside and out. Considering there is no mileage penalty, why not drive a bigger car? At just over 14 feet long, the Madza3 is still in the easy-to-park class and yet still spacious on the inside. The extra length translates into more hip, shoulder, and leg room in the Mazda3 compared to the close quarters of the Versa Note. The Mazda3 also has a leg-up on the Note by offering ten more cubic feet of space for rear cargo.
The Nissan Versa is one of the lowest-priced cars for sale today, and - unfortunately for Nissan - it looks and feels that way. The interior of the Versa Note is all hard plastics and still sports a look that went out of fashion a couple decades ago. The Mazda3 has an up-to-date interior design, with soft surface materials and a more modern look. Outside, there is still no contest. The Mazda3 is one of the best-looking cars on the market today and features a flowing, curvaceous design which still manages to be understated and fresh. Meanwhile, the Nissan Versa Note looks bland, anonymous, and boring in comparison.
The 2015 Mazda3 hatchback and sedan are extraordinary driver's cars in a class of ordinary economy cars. Let Cutter Mazda in Honolulu how good an economy car can be to drive today.
