2005 Mazda3

Enlarge Photo
The Mazda3 replaced the former Protégé in Mazda's lineup last year and continues for 2005 as an attractive and somewhat sporty compact-car alternative. Available in sedan and hatchback versions, the Mazda3 shares platforms with the Volvo S40 sedan and V50 wagon, and its relatively long wheelbase affords a roomy interior. A 150-horsepower 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine powers the base model, while the "s" versions offer a 2.3-liter four-cylinder that generates a healthier 160 horses. A five-speed manual transmission comes standard and a four-speed automatic is optional. Available features include anti-lock brakes with electronic brakeforce distribution, front-side and side-curtain airbags, a navigation system, and high-intensity xenon headlamps.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
