The Sporty Mazda 3
The next car on our best cars for college grads is the Mazda 3, and we have some great reasons on why. From the stylish interior to the two sleek body styles to fit your personal lifestyle. The other reason why we love this car is the excellent fuel economy, but we will explain that later in more detail.
So once again, let’s start with the interior of the Mazda 3. As with most cars today, the 3 is equipped with a 7 inch touch screen that is running the MAZDA CONNECT system. With that you get a variety of features such as Pandora Radio and a plethora of usb ports and 12v plugs. The Mazda 3 also comes with bluetooth connectivity to keep your music going cable free! The entire dash and materials used are very stylish and quality grade.
The Mazda 3 in the looks department kills it for the price range. The front end is adorned with projector and led headlights. The Mazda 3 also comes in 2 body styles, the 5 door hatch and a 4 door sedan. The Mazda 3 also comes in a variety of colors and 3 trim levels (Sport, Touring, and Grand Touring).
The parts to make it go!
And finally, lets talk about how the Mazda 3 gets up and goes! You have 2 engine options when you go in to buy a new Mazda 3, a 2.0L and a 2.5L.
