2012 Mazda 3 Summary

The 2012 Mazda3 benefits from a freshened grille that reduces the big grin on last year's models. The Mazda3 comes in 4-door sedan and 5-door hatchback versions, both with friendly, convenient interiors. The new 2012 SkyActiv 2.0-liter package is an impressive achievement, with zoom-zoom performance, wonderful automatic and manual transmissions, ideal controls, and 40 miles per gallon on the highway.
