The New Face of Zoom-Zoom


Top-10-Things-To-Know-About-the-2014-Mazda-3-Main-Art

Zoom-Zoom, it’s what sets Mazda apart from other car companies. The small Japanese manufacturer focuses on driving dynamics far more than other mass-market automakers. The result of that relentless toil is a lineup of cars and crossovers that are more entertaining than their competition. Paraphrasing one of the company’s TV commercials, if it’s not worth driving it’s not worth building.

One of Mazda’s most important products is the compact Mazda3. Available as either a hatchback or sedan it’s the cornerstone of the brand’s global sales. It’s never an easy task updating a successful product; drastic changes can attract new buyers but they also risk alienating existing customers. Fortunately for everyone the company has made common-sense updates to the 2014 model that should actually please everyone. Here are 10 things you absolutely must know about the new Mazda3.

What has and hasn't changed


2014-Toyota-Corolla-Cover

In case you hadn’t heard, the Toyota Corolla is receiving a complete overhaul for 2014.

The same design we have seen more or less since 2003 is finally being put to rest. This overly conservative approach to the Corolla has been a great sales success for Toyota. Last year it, along with the Matrix, sold 290,947 units. That was good enough to claim the title as America’s 8th best-selling vehicle; up one spot from 2011.

So the refresh this year is a big deal for the folks at Toyota. Although they do want to attract new customers to the Corolla, the manufacturer needs to be careful to not alienate existing customers either. Here are the top ten most important features of the new Corolla.
