2018 Mazda3 near Janesville, WI: The Big Advantages of a Compact Car

The Big Advantages of a Compact Car Like the 2018 Mazda3 in a City LIke Janesville

Janesville might not be as big as Milwaukee or Madison, but it still is a thriving city and one of the top ten most populous cities in the state of Wisconsin. Its a great place for college students, young professionals, families, and retirees to succeed. It's also a great place to have a compact car like the 2018 Mazda3.

Compact cars make for great city cars for a number of reasons, including their better fuel economy and their smaller build making them easier to navigate tight city streets. The following is a look at these and other big advantages of compact cars for daily driving in cities like Janesville and how the 2018 Mazda3 excels in each of those areas:

The Big Advantages of Compact Cars Like the 2018 Mazda3 in Janesville

1. Fuel efficiency. Who doesn't like to save money at the fuel pump? Compact cars like the 2018 Mazda3 boast lightweight design with a smaller, more efficient engine that does well both in stop-and-go city traffic and when zooming down the highway to the suburbs and beyond. This year's Mazda3 boasts an EPA-estimated 28 miles per gallon in the city and 37 mpg on the highway.

2. Easy maneuvering. While modern crossovers, SUVs, and even minivans are a lot easier to maneuver than they used to be, these big vehicles can still feel like a bit of a chore to drive for some. Especially when it comes to regularly driving around downtown areas. The design of compact cars like the 2018 Mazda3 make them much easier to maneuver in manners like on-street parallel parking.

In fact, lovers of compact cars might find that no other compact model compares to the 2018 Mazda3 when it comes to offering both terrific handling at the wheel and a superb suspension underneath that easily soaks up ugly road imperfections. Drivers will find that the car responds directly and precisely to steering commands and that its beautiful suspension and strong grip on all types of road conditions inspires confidence and capability.

3. Refined, driver-first interior. Compact cars made be limited in size when it comes to the second-row, but that's because the interior focus is all on the driver. The 2018 Mazda3 is an excellent example of such a class model boasting the best in refined front-row comfort (as well as some key second-row features).

First things first, it's easy to get in and out of the front-row seating of the Mazda3 as the doors open wide and offer plenty of clearance for knees and head to swing through. Once you're sitting in the front-row, both the driver and the front passenger will appreciate the ample head, leg, and shoulder room offered by this compact car. You'll be surrounded by high-quality materials both on the seat and along all the soft touch areas. Key features found inside the car include an outstanding heads-up active display, a 7-inch touchscreen display outfitted with the Mazda Connect infotainment system, two USB ports, and much more.
