Finding the right car to fit your lifestyle can be a challenge for many drivers. Sedans might be too limiting, but a hatchback with all the fixings can quickly grow out of your budget. Fortunately, the 2018 Mazda3 Hatchback is here to save the day. Here are a few benefits of the Mazda3’s fifth door from us here at Bakersfield Mazda.
The new Mazda3 Hatchback features more than enough space for five passengers to sit comfortably. With more than 96.4 cu ft. of space, no one will be too close for comfort, no matter how long the journey may be.
Transporting sporting equipment or other large items, such as bags of mulch, is a breeze thanks to the Mazda3 Hatchback’s plethora of cargo space. With the rear seats up, the latest model offers up to 20.2 cu ft. of space. Folding the rear seats down opens up a spacious 47.1 cu ft. of space.
Ease of Access
Unlike a sedan, where you may have to lean into the trunk in order to reach the back, the Mazda3 Hatchback makes ease of access a top feature. Simply open the hatch and reach inside for what you need. It’s that simple.
There’s no denying that the Mazda3 Sedan looks good. The Mazda3 Hatchback offers sporty styling, even with its utility-driven fifth door. Sleek curves and the KODO design language makes the latest model stand out in a crowd.
Mazda has released its redesigned 2014 MAZDA3. This car is available as either a sedan or five-door hatchback and features a striking new design, a comfortable interior, and a sporty driving feel.
Edmunds.com says the MAZDA3 hatchback “is easily our favorite hatchback in this class.”
Despite being a car designed for those who are relatively economically-minded, the MAZDA3 features an upscale interior that feels luxurious and high-tech. Because of the MAZDA3’s remarkable new technology features, including a vivid seven-inch color touchscreen, Edmunds continues its review by comparing the MAZDA3 to not only to a Mercedes, but to an Audi and BMW, as well.
The 2014 MAZDA3 is available in five trims ranging from the base i Sport model to the top-of-the-line, s Grand Touring trim. There are two engines to choose from. The base engine is a 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine that makes 155 horsepower. A more powerful 184-horsepower 2.5-liter, four-cylinder can get you to 60 mph in less than 8 seconds. Both engines are part of Mazda’s efficiency-boosting SKYACTIV technology.

Mazda gave their best-selling compact, the Mazda 3, a major facelift for the 2014 version. Wiping the smile off the car’s grille, Mazda put its game face on for the streamlined new design of the vehicle. The 2014 Mazda 3 comes as both a sedan and a five-door hatchback, both of which benefit from the new sleeker design.
2014 Mazda3 Redesign
The newest version of the Mazda 3 comes with some massive technological upgrades to go with the redesigned exterior. The car is the first in Mazda’s lineup to feature the Mazda Connect Infotainment system. Drivers access the system through a seven-inch touchscreen on top of the dashboard. As an added safety feature, drivers cannot use the touchscreen capability while in motion, but they can still use Mazda Connect through voice commands.
The 2014 Mazda 3 also lands near the top of its class in fuel economy—the official EPA-estimated numbers are 29 mpg in the city and a very alluring 41 mpg on the highway.
The 2014 Mazda 3—available at Bakersfield Mazda now—is a seriously sweet car. The car might not be smiling anymore, but you will be while you’re driving it.
