Mazda 3

Arriving in 2004, the Mazda3 was the second in Mazda's range to move away from the old, triple-number naming scheme, ending a quarter-century run for the Mazda 323.

It was a good job, then, that the Mazda3 was more than good enough to carry a new name – or number – forward. Going after the Corolla and its ilk with a small-sized sedan and hatch was always going to be a tough ask, but the 3's combination of handling prowess, good looks and high level of standard kit have propelled it to sales success. The Mazda3 is available with a pair of petrol engines, as well as the same high-revving diesel as the CX-5 and 6.
