It’s one thing to be named to Kelley Blue Book’s list of “10 Coolest Cars Under $18,000,” but it’s quite another to be selected as the coolest car of them all. That’s the distinction recently awarded to the Mazda3, which won the top prize for the fourth year in a row. “The Mazda3 is widely regarded as the best-looking and most fun-to-drive vehicle in the segment, and we call it one of the coolest cars of all time,” according to KBB executive market analyst Jack R. Nerad. See just how fun it is to get behind the wheel of a Mazda3 when you visit Chapman Mazda on Bell Road.

Performance Does Not Take A Back Seat

There are many reasons to consider a Mazda3 as your next vehicle. There’s the four consecutive years being named the coolest car on the planet under $18,000. Or perhaps you’re enamored by its 5-passenger seating and near hybrid-like 37 mpg on the highway. Don’t discount the fun factor. Mazda’s commitment to SKYACTIV technology and the recent introduction of G-Vectoring Control means the little Mazda3 performs more like a race car than an everyday commuter. The G Vectoring system is constantly adjusting the power delivery to shift the vehicle weight as you fly through corners. That not only means superior handling, but it creates a smoother, less tiring drive.

Developing Technology Keeps You Safe

The Mazda3 isn’t only fun, it’s also one of the safest compact vehicles on the road. With the available i-ACTIVSENSE safety technology that utilizes cameras and radar to warn you of impending collisions, you’ll be aware of problems before they happen. The 2017 Mazda3 is a Top Safety Pick Plus, as determined by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.

Available in Three Trim Levels

The Mazda3 4-door sedan comes in three different trim levels, all powered by the 155-horsepower SKYACTIV engine with variable valve timing. The base Sport model comes with a ton of standard features, including a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system, steering wheel-mounted controls and Bluetooth streaming. For a few dollars more you can move up to the Touring package, which provides a power driver seat with lumbar support, heated front seats trimmed in leatherette and dual-zone automatic climate control. With a starting price under $25K, the Grand Touring package is the top-of-the-line and includes an upgraded Bose stereo system, rain-sensing windshield wipers and a power moonroof.

With an EPA-estimated 32 miles per gallon, available all-wheel drive and comfortable seating for five adult passengers, the Mazda CX-5 midsize SUV deserves strong consideration as your next new vehicle. With an alluring design that promotes simplicity over gaudiness while still earning looks from passers by, the new CX-5 delivers a boldly sophisticated look for the modern driver. See how bold you can be when you test drive the new CX-5 at Chapman Mazda.

Human-centric Interior Provides Comfort

From the thoughtfully-selected finishes and textures to the smartly designed positioning of all the controls and door handles, the interior of the Mazda CX-5 is a craftsman’s dream. While some vehicles make you exhausted at the end of a long drive, don’t be surprised if the comfort and intuitive layout of the latest Mazda SUV leaves you with a feeling of rejuvenation . Car and Driver Magazine loves the CX-5, saying the interior is “rich, truly a class above the competition and better than some so-called luxury crossovers.”

CX-5 Handling Proves Driving Matters

Mazda’s latest catch phrase is “Driving Matters,” and that is never more evident than in the handling and performance of the CX-5. “This is one of the most fun-to-drive crossovers in the segment in regular driver mode, yet still manages to offer the biggest visceral change when you switch to Sport mode and everything sharpens; steering, throttle response, gear response, and handling,” wrote the editors of Motor Trend magazine. With G-Vectoring Control, the latest advance in cornering, the Mazda CX-5 adjust power delivery through the turns, reducing body roll and limiting driver fatigue. Mazda believes the vehicle and driver should operate as one integrated unit, with the vehicle a natural extension of a driver’s body and mind. If driving matters to you, head over to Chapman Mazda and check out the new CX-5.

Safety Matters as Well

A dynamic driving experience isn’t worth much if the driver and passengers are at constant risk. At Mazda, safety matters as much if not more than driving, which is why the company continually breaks ground with new safety features. One is the Active Driving Display, which relays important vehicle information in your line-of-sight. This allows you to keep your eyes on the road while monitoring vehicle functions. Mazda has a complete suite of sensor-driven driver assistance features, as many automakers do, but one unique offering is Traffic Sign Recognition. Utilizing a front camera along with navigation data, this system recognizes important highway signs and offers alerts in your Active Driving Display.

‘Best Three-row Crossover in Market’

The editors at Autotrader are in love with the Mazda CX-9, putting it on their list of “Must Test Drive” vehicles for consumers looking to upgrade their rides. The “Must Test Drive” list is based on evaluations by the Autotrader editorial team, choosing those vehicles that rank best in styling, interior quality, ride quality, technology and cargo capacity. The editors test drove hundreds of vehicles and determined that the CX-9 was the overall winner of the “Must Test Drive” award. See if it stands up to your evaluation by taking a test drive today at Chapman Mazda.

Luxurious Interior at Affordable Price

One of the reasons the CX-9 made Autotrader’s “Must Test Drive” list is its sumptuous interior. The editors wrote the CX-9 is “beautiful both inside and out,” and the luxurious interior proves “you don’t need to buy from a luxury brand to get a luxurious experience.” One editor wrote, “if you need three rows, don’t purchase an SUV without at least driving this one.” With liberal use of upscale materials such as Rosewood trim and Nappa leather seats, the Mazda CX-9 fits right in with SUVS that cost thousands of dollars more. The Mazda Connect infotainment system has an available 8-inch color touchscreen to make streaming music and hands-free communication a snap. A Bose 12-speaker surround sound system bathes you in concert quality music, while heated front seats keep you nice and toasty on those cold winter days.

Light, Rigid Structure Aids Driving Dynamics

Although the Mazda CX-9 has plenty of room to haul your part of the soccer team and all their equipment, don’t think you have to sacrifice performance and handling. Mazda engineers utilized SKYACTIV technology to construct a rigid, yet light structure that combines with a peppy and efficient 2.5L engine to deliver class-leading torque, instant throttle response and up to 28 mpg on the highway. In short, the CX-9 may be the biggest and most fun sports car you’ve ever laid your eyes upon.

Enjoy the Drive in Peace and Quiet

The Mazda engineers were so successful at removing weight from the structure of the CX-9 that they were able to add 53 pounds of sound-deadening material back into the finished product. That means you’ll enjoy listening to the conversation and/or music on your daily drives or occasional long trips. It’s also a reason you must test drive the Mazda CX-9 before making your next SUV purchase. See it today and take it for a spin when you visit Chapman Mazda.
