Driving the Mazda 3 with SkyActiv Technology around town made me feel young. It’s got that sporty feel that a college kid or grad loves. Moms don’t often get the chance to leave the crumbled Goldfish and empty juice boxes. I was ready to leave the crumbs and take my little “sports car” for a spin, my oldest jumped in, too! This car is AWESOME, exclaimed the kindergartener. She buckled herself in the middle seat and loved the view of the Tom-Tom navigation and a glimpse through the sunroof.
The Car that Moos
Yes, a few thousand feet into our 1st drive in the Mazda 3 and my daughter began to laugh. The car had moo’d at us. When the car gets within a certain distance of a school zone it will MOO at you. How clever! We spent a great part of the next hour driving around school zones just to hear the Moo. The sound is customizable, so if you’re more of a dog or cat girl you can choose other sounds to give you warnings.
I loved the technology in the Mazda 3, especially when it keeps me from getting a speeding ticket. On the navigation console the current speed limit is indicated with your current speed alongside. The moment you go over the speed limit a red light comes on. Yes, I need that type of reminder sometimes!
Watch my experience in the Mazda 3 and learn some of my other favorite features of the car:
Yes, the Golf Club’s Fit
Once again I checked to see if my husband’s golf bag would fit in the trunk. Yep. It fits!
While the Mazda 3 isn’t a big family-mobile, it is certainly a fun, gas-efficient car. It has great features that promote safety (speed warning, Moo-ing) that would be great for new or older driver. Plus, it looks sharp!
I was provided the Mazda 3 as a complimentary test drive. I was not compensated or requested to post. All opinions are my very own.
