    Here's another very interesting review of the Mazda3 Skyactiv with manual transmission. Though I love the automatic this review makes me kind of wish I'd gotten the manual. Enjoy.

    interesting note on the grill update, didn't notice it at first but it does improve the facia to look a little less grin like which is nice

    Here's an Australian review of the Mazda3 Skyactiv. Unfortunately, the I-Stop technology hasn't been included in the Skyactiv in Canada.

    Here's another good review just out from the Globe and Mail.

    "The 2.0-litre gasoline direct injection engine of the latter is also mated to either a reinvented manual or automatic six-speed transmission and both are very good. Truthfully, the 2012 Mazda3 SKY exceeds expectations – expectation that were very high given the months of hype coming out of Mazda. This is an entertaining little car, especially the version with a slick-shifting manual gearbox."

    In my opinion the auto is no slouch either.

    Here's an exhaustive video review of the Mazda3 Skyactiv Sport MT. I like the tan seat covers even better than the black in mine.

    The Mazda3 makes number 4 on Torquenews' selection of the 10 coolest cars of 2012. Should be number 1 in my opinion. Bizarre choices for the top 3.

    Here's another interesting review of the Skyactiv 3 that makes some points I hadn't seen in other reviews. He really likes the manual.
