Why The Mazda 3 Is One Of Canada's Favourite Cars

The most famous cars in the world often come from flashy, famous brands like Ferrari or Rolls-Royce, while the vehicles most of us depend on in our day-to-day lives — the cars we drive to work, take to the cottage, and go on road trips in — often seem humble in comparison. When shopping for a new vehicle, most of us are looking for something dependable that we can rely on to bring us safely home at the end of the day, but we also yearn to get behind the wheel of a car that makes us feel alive and gives us a sense of luxurious comfort and drag-strip energy, even if we only use it to commute to and from work.


The secret to the success of the Mazda 3 lies in its ability to deliver both. The Mazda 3 has been universally praised for providing a well-rounded package that, given its affordable pricing, punches far above its weight. Its incredible steering, playful handling, and excellent infotainment system have been rated as some of the best in the business, but the Mazda 3 has also been singled out for its ability to give drivers a sporty, high-end driving experience without sacrificing any of the elements that make it a deeply practical car.  


Luxury and performance can be hard things to pin down — it might not be possible to quantify the way you can quantify horsepower and efficiency, but a driver knows it when she sees it, and the Mazda 3’s popularity has much to do with its ability to translate these intangibles into something you can really feel. While individual elements like the 2.4-litre engine or Mazda’s SKYACTIV-Vehicle Dynamics Technology doubtless have something to do with its high performance, the popularity of the vehicle as a whole comes down to Mazda’s ability to merge these components into a whole that is more than the sum of its parts.

According to auto sales data for 2018, the Mazda 3 once again ranks high among the best selling cars of the first quarter, and as many Canadians shopping for a new car continue to search out the sweet spot between practicality and luxury, the Mazda 3 is only likely to become a more popular choice in the coming months.
