2013 Mazda3 Grand Touring Wrap Up

Well, really? What's not to love about the 2013 Mazda3? My gas mileage for the week? 41 miles to the gallon. WHAAAAAA?!?! Seriously? A four seater! Not a little mini car! A four seater, comfortable car with all the perks. Cruise control, navigation, bluetooth, and SkyActiv Technology comfy car!
Here are a few of my favorite attributes for the 2013 Mazda3 Grand Touring car.
First, the gas mileage. (I KNOW you're tired of hearing this but really?!?! I live in Southern California, I'm paying $4.65 a gallon! 41 miles to a gallon is ammmmazing!!

Keyless entry. LOVE love LOVE the blind spot indicator. The side mirror shows a warning lite icon of a car in your blind spot. It also beeps at you if you ignore the warning light. (See a picture on this post)

The turn signal indicator volume control. I've NEVER seen that in a car! LOVE that!!

SMS text message delivery and reply! USB link up. Full color adjustable navigation system.

Sunroof. If I can't have a convertible I love a sunroof!

Three Homelink buttons on the rear view mirror. Heated seats with 5 levels. Heated side mirrors!  Dual climate control. 2 power outlets, 60/40 split rear seat. Large trunk space.

The hidden cup holders give the front seat a nice clean look.

I'm sure an iPad Mini would fit in there too if someone wants to send me one to test my theory??  Ya, know just sayin'......

Disclosure I received a complimentary week driving the Mazda3 Grand Touring for the purpose of my review. (They aren't letting me keep this one either I checked) No other compensation was provided. The opinions are mine and 100% honest. I have not been influenced in any way

  32. As if the gas milage alone wasn't impressive but 5 levels on the heated seat and the blind spot indicator really impresses me. I will definitely be looking at the Mazda when I get a new car.

    ReplyDelete

  42. This sounds like a truly exceptional car. The price is comparable for this vehicle but it's not something that the average working single mom can afford unfortunately.

    ReplyDelete
