Just because you have a smaller budget or only need a small car, that doesn’t mean you don’t want quality. And that is just what you’ll get with the 2015 Mazda3. It recently won the Best-in-Class Under $20,000 award from Kiplinger Personal Finance, as part of its Best Value Awards.
These awards are given to cars that have the ideal combination of fuel efficiency, resale values, performance, safety, and driving impressions and represent the vehicles that deliver the best value for their price.
As for the Mazda3, Kiplinger wrote, “The Mazda3 might be small in stature, but it packs a punch in value. The winner of last year’s Best New Car Award in this category sports above-average resale values, impressive fuel economy and loads of cargo space, whether you choose the sedan or hatchback. Options include a regenerative-braking system to save fuel, plus safety features such as adaptive headlamps and blind-spot monitoring.”
To achieve its “impressive fuel economy,” the Mazda3 is equipped with Mazda’s Skyactiv Technology, which not only helps save fuel, but delivers exhilarating driving dynamics.
The Mazda3 is also one of the safest compact cars. It received both a Top Safety Pick designation from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) and a 5-Star Safety Rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
