KBB.com Names 2014 Mazda3 on Coolest New Cars List

2014 Mazda3If you’re looking for a car that can up your “cool” factor without breaking your budget, look no further than the 2014 Mazda3. According to KBB.com, the Mazda3 is one of the 10 Coolest New Cars Under $18,000, making it the perfect pick for those looking to turn heads while driving down the street.

The editors at KBB.com, one of the industry’s leading automobile websites, analyzed hundreds of vehicles based on two criteria—fun-to-drive and fun-to-own—that make it easier to determine whether or not a car is “cool”. They also take into consideration the purchase price of $18,000 or less, narrowing down the field until they determine the final 10 vehicles.

With a price tag of $16,945, the Mazda3 has new features like the KODO: Soul of Motion design facets and i-ELOOP, which ensures great fuel economy. It is also available in 4- and 5-door configurations and either a SKYACTIV-G 2.0-liter or 2.5-liter engine.

Forty-Four Mazda MX-5 Miatas Used to Pop the Question

2014 Mazda MX-5 MiataWe’ve heard of creative proposals and we know a thing or two about Mazda enthusiasts, but we’ve never seen the two combined quite like this. Forty-four Mazda MX-5 Miatas were strategically parked in a lot to spell a question one man hoped would be answered with happily ever after.

An aerial photographer and member of the Miata.net forum solicited the help of his fellow MX-5 fans, asking to borrow their vehicles for a special proposal. At the appointed time and place, 44 MX-5 Miatas were on hand to spell “Marry Me?”.

Once they were arranged, the hopeful groom-to-be asked his girlfriend to check out what she thought would be overhead shots of real estate taken by an unmanned drone. Among the photos captured was the parking lot where the Miatas helped our photographer friend pop the question.

Don’t worry. She said yes!
