Mazda3 i Grand Touring 5-Door

  • Price: $24,295
  • Gas mileage: 30 mpg city/40 mpg highway

The Mazda3 received a Top Safety Pick+ rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.

Although there are more affordable models, i Grand Touring was the pick here because of its extensive list of standard features and high-end technology equipment. On that long list are the Mazda Connect voice-activated infotainment system, navigation system, rearview camera, 7-inch touch screen, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert and a nine-speaker surround-sound audio system with iPod interface. The five-door hatchback arrived in showrooms first to be followed by a more affordable sedan.

The i Grand Touring uses Mazda's SkyActiv 155-horsepower, 2-liter four-cylinder engine connected to a six-speed, driver-shiftable automatic transmission for power.
