Auto Show notes: Mazda 3
I was eagerly waiting to see the all-new Mazda 3 in person.
The design does not disappoint in the flesh.
While the sedan is a super classy and modern design, the hatchback is a real stand out.
Behind that super thick C pillar, is a pretty roomy truck. Although the hatch doesn’t open all the way down to the cargo floor.
The inside is modern, but far from futuristic.
Actually, more like an Audi A4, but more modern.
The tablet is there. But at least, its design is integrated with the rest of the dashboard pretty nicely. It has a nice shape too. Not just a rectangle sitting on top of the dash.
The door design is modern and simple.
That super large C pillar is the main event of the hatchback design.
And here is the result. Pretty much a small cave for the rear seat passengers.
I guess it is not a problem if you have people in the back seat once in a while.
But for small kids, this would be pretty depressing…
