2011 Mazda Mazda 3 Review

Overview
Well aren’t you the defiant one. The rebel. You’ve come to the all-new 2011 MAZDA 3-4 Door after all. More pedal to the metal. Less pump to the tank. Because the all-new MAZDA 3 offers up a choice of two spirited yet fuel-efficient engines. The MAZDA 3 i features a responsive 148-horse power 2-liter engine that delivers a pump-friendly 33 mpg highway. While the MAZDA 3 s kicks in with a potent new higher-output 167-hp horse power 2.5-liter engine that combines top-shelf performance with excellent fuel economy. The elegant interior refinements in the MAZDA 3 will inspire the kind of superlatives you normally associate with pricey luxury cars. Oh how the technological treats await you in the all-new MAZDA 3 s. An innovative Multi Information Display elegantly integrates audio system info trip computer calculations systems data ambient temperature and maintenance reminders. And with the available compact navigation system it’s all in living color. An auxiliary-audio input jack and Bluetooth hands-free phone and audio capabilities are standard. You’re literally able to see around corners with the Bi-Xenon Adaptive Front-lighting System that turns the headlights as you steer. Rise up. Prepare to lay your claim to the land of the goose bump and the white knuckle. The 2011 Mazda 3-4 Door.
Overview
Sleek and stylish the 2011 Mazda 3-5 door turns heads like it takes corners. More pedal to the metal. Less pump to the tank. Because the MAZDA 3 offers up a choice of 6-speed manual transmission or 5-speed sport automatic transmission. Delivering up to 29 miles per gallon the high-output 167-hp horse power 2.5-liter engine combines top-shelf performance with excellent fuel economy. The elegant interior refinements in the MAZDA 3 will inspire the kind of superlatives you normally associate with pricey luxury cars. The MAZDA 3 5-Door is designed to be all about you the open road and a ton of stuff. Including a convenient 5th door and 60/40 split fold-down rear seat. It’s able to easily transport longer larger items—and still leave room for a backseat driver. We want your new MAZDA 3 to be a source of pride exhilaration and peace of mind for years to come. Which is why every new 2011 Mazda sold in the U.S. is protected by a five year 60 thousand limited power train warranty. You’re literally able to see around corners with the Bi-Xenon Adaptive Front-lighting System that turns the headlights as you steer. Get ready to be the envy of all your friends. The 2011 Mazda 3-5 Door.
