SNEAK PEEK - The All New 2015 Mazda2
| More than a pretty face, Mazda's commitment to dynamic handling and exccellent fuel economy are serious.
Mazda's sexy Kodo design language sets Hazumi off to a good start. It's exciting at how well Mazda's Kodo design's flowing, taut lines-which look fantastic on the bigger 3, 6, and CX-5 models-translate to the concept's tiny body. At Mazda, the goal was to make the Hazumi look like a "small but vigorous animal." Well here it is, the Honey Badger.

The 2014 Mazda3 manages to be lighter than its predecessor and yet in its case some 30 percent more structurally rigid. Extensive use of high tensile steel helps the new Mazda3 provide a stronger safety cage while improving handling.
There’s no doubt the 2014 Mazda3 was designed for driving enthusiast. Pop-up speed odometer and no overt eye-off-the-road distracting controls. Straight ahead are hooded gauges, like it’s Mazda6 counterpart, the heating/vent/ac system is operated via real knobs, not anything like capacitive touch buttons. Stereo, Cruise and Bluetooth Audio and Phone controls are steering wheel mounted and illuminated for convenience and safety. Supportive and comfortable seats front and back.
Power Steering is electric so it’s consistent in nature while it eliminates drag from the engine, which also improves fuel economy. 4-Wheel Disc brakes provide plenty of stopping power, which is controlled by the standard ABS (anti-lock bake system). Brake Assist and Electronic Brake Force Distribution are just some of the exceptional standard safety features in the 2014 Mazda3. The 2013 was named “TOP SAFETY PICK” by the IIHS and this incarnation has provides even more safety standards.
Wheel Base (106.3 inches) is longer, providing a smoother ride. The width (70.7 9nches) is also stretched making a more stable stance. The overall length is ½ inch shorter than it’s predecessor providing easy parking. Ground clearance also increased, to 6.1 inches.
