2. Circuit City
Like most new vehicles the 2014 Mazda3 offers a boatload of available technology. If we could travel back in time (see point No. 8 about modifying a DeLorean) even Apollo-era astronauts would be astounded by the computing power in this compact car. We landed men on the moon with far less.
The vehicle offers advanced driver-assistance systems including lane-departure warning, automatic city braking and blind-spot monitoring. Radar-based cruise control, forward collision warning and automatic high beams are also on the menu. These features are bundled under the umbrella term i-Activsense, another hokey name for some pretty cool stuff, but by now you know Mazda has a knack for coming up with both.
