I want my review to be anonymous.

    We recently spent a ton of time with the new Honda Civic Hatchback reviewed here , and unanimously arrived at the conclusion that it sets a new benchmark in the compact segment. But what does this mean for our previous favourite, the Mazda3? Last fully redesigned for the model year, the Mazda is one of the most athletic drivers in the class, and a joy to pilot.

    I actually tested the refreshed example briefly at the first drive event reviewed here , but we figured it appropriate to perform an instrumented test of such an important car.

    Interior updates are subtle, but well needed. The Active Driving Display Mazda-talk for heads-up is now full colour but remains on its own panel rather than being projected to the windshield. The cupholder area and console are refreshed, though could still use some fine-tuning — having a water bottle in the cupholder gets in the way of your arm when shifting. Whereas the base Mazda3 comes with a perfectly potent 2. This model is powered by the 2.

    When considering the 3,lbs curb weight of the Mazda3, this motor is the perfect size. Power is sent to the front wheels with minimal loss, and the car feels peppy and spirited almost anywhere in the power band. The six-speed manual transmission is a delight to operate, with perfect throws on the shifter and a great clutch. One of the biggest benefits to the Mazda3 over its rivals is that this is quite literally the only car left in its segment with well-weighted steering.

    GVC works with the engine, throttle, suspension, and steering, using algorithms to give a more controlled ride. We drove this car back to back with a previous-generation example, and the most noticeable trait of GVC is that the car needs a lot less steering overcorrection at highway speeds.

    Body roll is also minimal, and the Mazda3 is very balanced with decent, albeit very firm, ride quality. This car is rated for 9. Not bad, considering this drive took place during the first cold weather alert for The 50L fuel tank is a bit on the small side, and has a huge reserve. With the trip computer showing a distance to empty of precisely zero kilometers, the car only accepted 42L of fuel. Those wanting strict frugality may want to check out the upcoming diesel variant of the Chevrolet Cruze reviewed here.

    Noise isolation is a bit of a weak point in the Mazda3, as the interior is distinctly louder than rivals. The Hyundai Elantra reviewed here is much quieter, and the Civic is also better insulated. At highway speeds, road and tire noise is very obvious, and works to the detriment of the car.

    Perhaps the winter tires fitted to our test vehicle contributed slightly to this, but we have recommended the current Mazda3 to many of our friends and readers. Regardless of body style, tires, or powertrain configuration, the car is loud. Mazda introduced their current infotainment system for the model year, and it has now trickled down into the rest of their lineup, most recently the CX-9 reviewed here. After using it for longer periods, there are some quirks that have become evident.

    The HMI Commander is responsive, but the knob itself is a bit too small. Small issues, but they add up and could easily be rectified with a minor update. The Mazda3 Sport GT is still one of the hottest numbers in the segment, especially if having a hatchback is a priority. The engine goes a long way to deliver an engaging driving experience, and the point-and-go steering makes it a truly sporty little compact.
