Mazda3 Named to KBB’s 10 Coolest Cars Under 18k

2015 Mazda3 - 10 Coolest Cars Under 18kFor the second consecutive year, the Mazda3 has been named the number one vehicle on Kelley Blue Book’s KBB.com 10 Coolest Cars Under 18k list! The exciting news adds to the Mazda’s already cool, sophisticated appeal.

The top ten cars for the list were selected based on two items: how fun they are to drive and if they’re fun to own. KBB.com considers the two criteria to be major factors when judging a car on its “coolness.” KBB.com judges were extremely impressed after last year’s remodel and were equally as impressed with the Mazda3 again in 2015.

The Mazda has a lot more going for it than just its cool factor as well; it’s, of course, under $18k starting at just $16,945. It also includes a host of technologies including SKYACTIV engine options, i-ELOOP which boosts the Mazda3’s fuel efficiency, Mazda Connect infotainment system, and i-ACTIVESENSE safety system.

The 2015 Mazda3 is available now at Street Ponte Mazda if you’re interested in taking a test-drive in one of the coolest and most valuable sedans around!
