Mazda is known for making great, affordable vehicles with awesome features and the Mazda3 delivers on all fronts. It’s their first car with Mazda Connect, which provides a host of features such as vehicle status and mileage apps, access to social media, contacts (up to 1,000 can be imported from your smartphone), all displayed on a dash-mounted 7-inch color touchscreen with center console hand controls. Phone calls and navigation entries can be voice activated; the 3 will also read incoming text messages aloud, to which you can respond by voice or by hand. Pandora, Stitcher and Aha Radio streaming are available alongside HD and satellite radio, in addition to Bluetooth connectivity with your iPhone via Mazda’s Host Controller Interface.
