Mazda3 passes 3m units worldwide
There are three million Mazda 3s on the road after the Japanese manufacturer passed the significant landmark last month.
The five-door hatchback surpassed the total in under eight years on the market making it the fastest-selling model in the current Mazda range, even beating the record-obsessed Mazda MX-5.
In the UK the Mazda3 has enjoyed moderate success with almost 10,000 unit sales in 2010 as well as a host of motoring prizes including a ‘Best Family Car’ title in the Scottish Car of the Year awards and consistently good performances in the J.D. Power customer satisfaction survey.
Mazda’s are synonymous with reliability and style in the UK with a range of good-looking models and some quite innovative design features – most notable on the Mazda 5 MPV.
The second generation Mazda3 is no different and it boasts a sporty exterior and a reputation for brilliant handling.
It is currently on sale in more than 90 countries across the globe and in the UK it has recently received a new diesel drivetrain as the Japanese manufacturer looks to improve efficiency and emissions on the smart hatch.
The latest generation comes with a five-star Euro NCAP rating and pricing starts at around £12,000.
