2008 Mazda Mazda3 Review

Overview
You get what you pay for – or so the saying goes. The MAZDA THREE delivers a driving experience far beyond what you would expect for the price. The MAZDA THREE offers the performance sophistication safety and reliability you would expect from a much more expensive European sport sedan. The MAZDA THREE 4-door is precisely what you’d expect from Mazda. The roomy 4-door includes a vigorous 148 HP 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine or 2.3L DOHC four-cylinder with 156 HP and premium suspension for speedy drive that's as fast as it is smooth. Plus the lightweight construction and state-of-the-art safety technology help you and your wild side make it home unharmed. One look at the MAZDA THREE 5-door will tell you that this is a car with its own rules -- and one drive won't be nearly enough. The MAZDA THREE 5-door starts with the versatility of a hatch back with 43.8 cubic feet of cargo space. The MAZDA THREE 5-door - drive more fun. The Mazda THREE’s front air bags can change their deplyment force based on the severity of the crash the driver’s seat position or the passenger’s weight resulting in a reduction of air bag related injury. The Mazda THREE redefining what is possible in the compact car
