The 2016 Mazda Three is the kind of car that just makes you happy when you sit in it. Even before you get inside the beautiful interior, that would almost pass off as that of a luxury car, you are greeted by the familiar Mazda front end.
Why does it make you happy, probably because of the likability that the Mazda three has. With its superb fuel economy, stylishness, sportiness, and an available hatchback version.
Mazda sure does have awesome designers, and they really seem to do their work well, because the Mazda 3 is a great looking car.
