5 Reasons Why Mazdas are so Much Fun to Drive

Published on

Thinking of getting a new car, or need a replacement for your current wheels? If you’re looking for a bit of a change, why not explore the range of Mazdas we have on offer?

You may find yourself surprised, as Mazdas can be notoriously fun cars to drive. Of course, different models come with different specifications, and you’ve probably got some of your own boxes to tick.

Whether you’re looking for a reliable family car, a sturdy slick sedan, or sexy sports car à la MX-5 – Mazda is sure to have something for you.

1. Driving Mazdas Means Comfort

Mazdas undoubtedly make for a fun drive. Soul and personality exude from each of their sleek designs, engaging the senses and enrapturing their drivers in the spirit of KODO: Soul of Motion.

Mazda design chief, Ikuo Maeda aims to depict the intensity behind a Japanese kendo sword waiting to strike, or the majestic power stance and pent-up energy of a predator ready to pounce.

Design Excellence And Stylised Serenity

Speed, tense, and alluring – these are the words used to describe the design philosophy of KODO. Premium quality materials make for beautiful and cozy interiors.

Mazda’s line of SUVs such as the CX-3, CX-5, and CX-9 are also known to have a more muted vibe than your typical SUV, with the New York Times describing the CX-5 as ‘quieter and more refined’. As quiet as a BMW? AutoGuide thinks so.

Throw in a fully adjustable steering column to allow full control over the positioning of your steering wheel and ensure a comfortable driving experience, and we’re feeling very satisfied indeed.

2. Excellent Handling

Mazdas still use naturally aspirated engines instead of turbocharging. For many, this makes their cars much more enjoyable to drive. No turbo power means the delivery of the engine tends to be more linear.

Mazda’s commitment to saving weight in their vehicles means their cars handle better and feel quicker. With more economical engines that use less fuel, but still feel fast and smooth to drive.

Off-Road Fun

Mazda describes the CX-5 as ‘artfully elevated’, and its reviews suggest much the same. More than that, it’s a joy to drive because of its sporty feel that combines swift and flashy with 4-wheel drive fun for off-road adventures.

What's more, its steering and suspension are a class above its competitors. Its agile handling combined with brilliant steering makes for a truly memorable driving experience.

We love that Mazda put so many controls in the steering wheel, making it easy to change radio stations, adjust volume, and play with cruise control.

3. Lots of Variety

With a wide range of cars, Mazda has something for everyone. There’s a huge selection of small hatchbacks, to medium, and large. Sedans, sports cars, and SUVs.

You can’t get bored when there’s just so much choice! From the spirited and peppy MX-5 Miata to the functional yet sporty Mazda 3 Hatchback.

Even TopGear loves the MX-5, having given it an extremely favorable review which describes even the gear changing as ‘bliss’.

A Car For Every Lifestyle

A car for every lifestyle means an exciting assortment to test drive to see which suits you best. 

For those who prefer a more connected drive, we also sell manual Mazda models as well as automatics. For a more engaged Mazda driving experience, why not give them a go, too?

4. Gadgets Galore

If you appreciate a good gadget, you’ll get a kick out of some of the cool features included on some of Mazda’s most popular models.

Most impressively though, they never veer into the gimmicky or redundant showy nonsense that is often the pitfall of more luxury brands.

Safety Features

With an active approach to driver safety, Mazda’s i-ACTIVSENSE(R) uses milliwave radars and cameras to keep you clocked on your surroundings while also being focused on the road.

Feel more confident when you drive with advanced systems to keep you alerted to potential hazards. When a collision is unavoidable, pre-collision safety technology reduces the severity. Its prime objective is to keep you safe.

Maximum enjoyment can only truly exist in a secure environment. This is what Mazda aims to create through its cars, without sucking the fun out of driving.

Just For Fun

Controls in the steering wheel create ease of handling, with volume adjustment, cruise control, and the ability to change radio stations all at the touch of a few buttons.

Unique climate control features allow for maximum comfort, not to mention ample legroom depending on your needs. Maeda’s KODO design is evident across all Mazda cars, with elegant interior designs that integrate a refined and stylized entertainment system worked by console controls or touchscreen.

USB charging ports make long road trips significantly less stressful. It’s all in the small details with Mazda.

A push button instead of a turn-key, a dashboard monitor that reads your text messages out loud for you. A moonroof for better lighting and increased visibility as you drive.

5. Great Value For Money

With all their great features, feel-good philosophy and genuine passion for quality driving, Mazda truly cares about their customer’s driving experience.

Affordable as well as fun, extras are optional for true aficionados and those willing to spend a little extra to enhance the thrill of an all-around great driving experience. Driving a Mazda truly is worth the investment.
