This beauty starts at $17,845. The configuration we tested was priced at $30,270.
The all new 2016 Mazda 3 Grand Touring was a pleasure to drive. I’m all about cars that not only look great, but perform well in the safety, gas and comfort level. While the 2016 Mazda 3 isn’t a larger vehicle, it’s a great vehicle for a small family, someone who is single or even someone just getting their license! Mazda has wowed me with all of their designs and I just loved the color of this 2016 Mazda 3. The soul red metallic has my heart, I actually want a red car now.
I went shopping with my toddler and was able to park easily as well as a smooth ride on the large roads to see family. I seem to have people stop me when I’m driving the cars and park, someone asked about the car as I was walking into HomeGoods. I can’t blame them, it’s a gorgeous vehicle! My husband wanted to take it for the week instead of me. He loves Mazda too! I can’t blame him! He actually had fun driving it when a few times, don’t worry. 😉 We actually always go out together so we take turns driving!

There really isn’t anything I don’t like about Mazda. No matter what car they send me I always fall in love! If you’re in the market for a safe and compact vehicle, the 2016 Mazda 3 is definitely one to consider. It received a Top Safety Pick + from IIHS and high marks on front crash prevention.
One thing to note, IIHS did mark it for poor on car seat installation, but I had no issues. Not sure what the reasoning was there, we had absolutely no issues with our car seat.
special thanks to driveshop and mazda for loaning us the 2016 Mazda 3 for the week!
