For the fourth time, the Mazda3 has been named #1 on Kelley Blue Book’s list of the 10 Coolest Cars Under $18,000. The new Mazda3, making its 14th appearance in total on the list, is available in both sedan and hatchback formats. Year after year, drivers throughout Vernon and South Windsor count on the Mazda3 to deliver sporty styling and a dynamic driving experience, in addition to a premium lineup of advanced features inside. All of this makes it a strong choice for drivers who are on a budget but still looking for a fun vehicle to get around in!

A Fun-to-Drive Compact Car

It’s no surprise that the Mazda3 earned yet another spot at the top of this list. Starting at only $17,845 MSRP, the Mazda3 comes standard with confident performance via a 2.0L inline-four that makes 155 hp, although you can also opt for a 2.5L inline-four that generates 184 hp, allowing the car to move from 0 to 60 mph in just 7.5 seconds, according to Edmunds. The sophisticated engineering of the Mazda3’s steering and suspension also helps it deliver a composed yet dynamic response behind the wheel.

Cool Features

Inside the cabin of the new Mazda3, you’ll find a full lineup of high-tech features that each make being on the road a joy. Every model comes standard with HD Radio and internet radio compatibility, and as you move up the trim ladder you’ll also have access to features like a Bose® stereo system, a sunroof, SiriusXM® satellite radio, and even heated front seats and steering wheel.
