Mazda makes a claim for the new 3. “Our 40 is better than their 40,” they say, meaning zoom-zoom performance hasn’t been compromised to hit 40 mpg. Not by hard tires, space-saving spares, or aerodynamic hubcaps. And “their 40” refers to Hyundai Elantra, Ford Focus, Chevrolet Cruze, and Honda Civic, competitors that also reach 40 mpg, in certain models. Mazda says it offers the most optional extra equipment of any 40-mpg car, for example a Technology Package with blind spot monitoring system, adaptive headlamps and LED taillamps.
