VANCOUVER (British Columbia) – That development, which has become what they call SKYACTIV technology, is now being applied to every Mazda model that gets introduced or redesigned. After the 2013 Mazda CX-5 and the 2014 Mazda6, it was the Mazda3’s turn to get SKYACTIVated from head to toe…

Vancouver – I’ve always thought highly of the Mazda3, a car that could easily handle city traffic and then, when the road opened up, turn into a capable curve-carver with its delightful response and handling. And now, with the all-new 2014 model, it gets even better. While the last-gen 3 incorporated most of Mazda’s fuel-saving SkyActiv technologies, this new one is now based completely on them, including its optimized engines, lightweight construction, and available on the 2.5-litre model, a “smart” alternator and capacitor system that reduces parasitic drag…

VANCOUVER – When a product is successful as the Mazda3, it is critical that you get it right when it’s time to make changes.

This is an important car for Mazda.

Put another way, they need to get this right. A few hours later, after my initial test drive to Whistler and back on the Sea- to-Sky highway, I am confident to say, get it right they did. A top seller across Canada since it first launched in 2003, the 2014 edition represents the 3rd generation Mazda3. Available in both sedan and hatchback models from the very beginning; the newest version continues this trend across the model range…

VANCOUVER, B.C. — The Mazda3 has ranked as the compact segment leader for as long as it has been around — 136 awards says it all. The replacement takes the 3!s basics and amps them up in all areas, which means it is destined to remain the benchmark when it hits the road. The third-generation Mazda3, which is offered in GX, GS and GT derivatives of the sedan and hatch, has a sharper style, a richer content list and a full suite of Mazda’s Skyactiv technology…
