The new 2019 Mazda 3 became popular mostly as a family hatchback that has its main focus on the drive rather than on the peripheral technological gimmick and this had its good effect on most of the driving enthusiasts who agree that too much technology does affect the driving pleasure. Driving the 2019 Mazda 3 for the first time at the Phoenix Mazda, gave us the necessary experience that led us promptly to go for one. And here is a brief account of what we experienced while driving this Mazda model through various experimentative terrains.
More of a Family Car
Mazda has been known for its practicality for decades, but without compromising the little comfort every car occupant will expect, when they drive a car that looks good too. There is ample space in the back seats, that makes all the rear seat passengers enjoy their own little space throughout the journey. The rear pillars are thinner to expose more to the visibility, which is one of the best features any family car can offer.
Powered by a 2.0-litre Skyactiv-G petrol engine, the 2019 Mazda 3 is able to make a 122hp which is at the higher side of the record in its segment that is derived when paired to a six-speed manual gearshift that brought all the goodwill from the willing drivers. The engine was smooth enough through the towns, handled well with every mechanism listening to the driver at the quickest possible time. Overall, the drives are heard to be well-balanced, responding with a crisp chassis that shows its mettle on interesting terrains.
Driving Assistance Features
Mazda as one of the pioneers in introducing high-end driving mechanisms never falls short of providing the best driver assistance features, knowing well, how they help in improving the drive comfort. In the 2019 Mazda 3, you get a lengthy list of driver-assistance features like the lane-keeping, traffic jam easin, automatic forward braking, blind spot monitoring, to give the driver rectify the mistakes, in case of emergencies. But at the same time, it doesn’t throttle the power of the driver by making everything too mechanical and automatic. Hence, for those driving is an act of pleasure than a mere dutiful chore, the 2019 Mazda 3 is a blessing.
Mazda has placed a lot of focus on the way the 2019 Mazda 3 will drive. That automatically includes its emphasis on how the driver feels while interacting with all its controls. And the feedback from the drivers from all the corners of the world say that their drives were refreshing with every single move, never got monotonous and had the perfect response whenever the drivers gave their inputs.
When we drove the 2019 Mazda 3 at the Phoenix Mazda dealership, we realized one thing. It is the steering that needs to be well weighted to behave accurately in tune to the instructions given by the driver at every turn. That was perfectly designed in the 2019 Mazda 3 because of which the driving comfort in this crossover brings you all smiles for both the driver and the passengers.
