2018 Mazda3 Sport GT

15 years after it picked up where the Mazda Protegé had left off, the Mazda3 has been a recurring hit on the market. The latest generation was introduced five years ago, which makes it a bit of an aging design, however thanks to a few subtle upgrades brought in 2017, the Mazda3 has managed to stay young until its 2019 redesign.

Mazda has been giving us a lesson or two about driving fun at an accessible price. The cool-looking, head-turning MX-5 is the best example of it, however, the same applies to the mainstream model and for under $20k, you can get an engaging drive. The manufacturer has been working off the jinba ittai Japanese principle that identifies the symbiosis between a horse and its rider which translates into a driver-centric experience at the wheel of the Mazda3.

In our latest Review in 2, we take you out for a drive in the 2018 Mazda3 Sport GT for the full Japanese experience.

Sabrina loves cars and hates writing bios, except she’s been told that she can’t get away with writing lazy introductions anymore. So here goes nothing: a long time ago, in a galaxy not so far away called Quebec, a girl was born, destined to love Mustangs, ride motorcycles and master the Force. A Bachelor in Art History and an essay on the positioning of the Morgan cars in the modern definition of the Arts and Crafts movement later, the girl-turned-woman is now thriving in the realms of automotive/motorcycling journalism and geekery of all genre, pretending to use the Force to open automatic doors and to know what she’s doing at the wheel of awesome cars. Sabrina also enjoys walks on the beach, pina coladas and endless sentences.
