2014 Mazda3: More Photos

2014-mazda3

Mazda's compact car got lower and wider for 2014, but the most noticeable change is the loss of its creepy, clown-smile grille. Sedan and hatchback versions of the Mazda3 now wear more sophisticated styling in front, which is joined by a much more polished interior. An optional dash-mounted, tablet-like 7-inch screen and nicer cabin materials are high points.

Cars.com reviewer Kelsey Mays says the redesign gives compact-car shoppers an alluring choice outside and in, and it offers a satisfying mix of efficiency and performance. Click here for his drive impressions, and check out the gallery of his photos below.

I am going to say, I like the current center console better because I like radio display tacked above and not sticking up like current "tablet". also , current design has lower compartment door and it creates a waterfall. And new glove compartment seems lost its deep portion behind opening door. Another thing, I just wait for somebody break the glass, tear off this sticking up monitor and run with it.

The screen is built into the dash, so I doubt you could easily remove it without destroying it. There's also not much that could be done with the screen if you're able to get it out of the car. Believe it or not, thieves are pretty smart and know which things are worth stealing.

I love the car; however, I'm not crazy about infotainment screens looking like a propped-up afterthought. On the other hand, it seems even the higher end Germans are doing this, so what do I know?
