Mazda 3 2015 Q&As
Check out real-world situations relating to the Mazda 3 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.
Mazda 3 2014: Which variant should I pick?
They are of a similar age, so there shouldn’t be much between them in terms of accumulated mileage. The SP25 is better equipped and sportier model, but I would still go for the Maxx being newer and a little cheaper.
Mazda 3 2015: Paint peeling
Without being able to see the paint problem it is difficult to be conclusive, but on the basis of what you have told us it is more likely to be the paint quality than bird droppings.
Your best course of action is to consult a paint specialist and have them make an independent assessment that you can submit to Mazda.
Hyundai i30 or Mazda 3 2015: Which one should I buy?
It’s a toss of a coin, both are good cars and should give you a good run for the five years you want to keep them.
Best options for small SUV or hatchback?
You need to decide on whether you want an SUV or a hatch before you do anything else. The SUV gives you a better view of the road, is practical, and the CX-3 is a good choice, but hatches can also be attractive. I would rule out the Mazda2 in your case, as it would seem to be too small for your needs, but the 3, Corolla and i30 are all good cars that would deliver on the things you want.
Mazda 3 2015 Towing capacity
The Mazda 3’s towing capacity ranges from 1200kg to 1400kg. Some models also offer heavy-duty or towing option packs which can increase towing capacity, as well as options which can hamper towing capacity. Towing capacities can vary wildly on a large number of factors. These include engine, transmission, model, and options chosen. Always check with the manufacturer or in your vehicles handbook before attempting to tow anything.
