Mazda gives us a sneak peek
Fun fact: The third-generation Mazda 3 has been the most successful model for the brand throughout its Philippine run. Of course, we are expecting a new one soon-the fourth generation of the compact was revealed at last year's Los
Won’t be long now
Just months after its global debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show, the all-new, fourth-generation Mazda 3 has inched its way ever closer us. The new compact sedan just made its regional debut at the 2019 Singapore Motorshow this week.
Hatchback or sedan?
Mazda has unveiled the all-new 3 ahead of the 2018 Los Angeles Auto Show. The Japanese carmaker's popular compact offering in sedan and hatchback form flaunts sleeker looks, a more elegant vibe, and-most important-a Skyactiv-X powertrain.Those
Will it come with Skyactiv-X?
Back in 2017, we had the pleasure of seeing the Mazda Kai Concept in the metal during the Tokyo Motor Show. Even better? We had an opportunity to chat with its designer Yasutake Tsuchida-the same dude who worked on the current-
The price difference is insignificant
Subcompact cars are all the rage right now. It seems like another entry is being launched in the segment every month or two, with the most recent addition for sedans being the all-new Toyota Vios, and for hatchbacks, the all-new
Here are our first impressions from behind the wheel
When new technology is thrust upon the average motorist, one of the first tests is whether it can go by unnoticed. In something as sophisticated as Mazda's Skyactiv-X engine, this makes perfect sense. Its engineers tell us that when the
Many of these are still around
Alright, so maybe the 2000s is still relatively fresh in our memories compared to the other two decades we've featured in our college cars roundups. After all, there's still a '90s NBA player or two that remain active in the
Some things are more important than your ride
Pictured above is my first-gen Mazda 3, a car that I'll continue to cherish for the rest of my life. There's nothing quite like your first, right? I bought it used back when I was living in Australia, and
One of the most stylish options
For the most part, the current-gen Mazda 3 has been universally accepted with open arms. On the other hand, the second-gen model it replaced was arguably the least popular iteration--partly due to its infamous "smiley grille," which has (thankfully)
Drop by Jinba Ittai Academy
There's a pop-up test-drive course and pavilion that you have to visit this weekend if you want to test out some really cool cars. Calling all enthusiasts: If driving is your thing, you don't want to miss this.
We hope so
Mazda has announced that it will be displaying a new concept compact hatchback at the 2017 Tokyo Motor Show in Japan later this month.The company says that the vehicle "fuses next-generation technology and design," and will be powered by the
To be used as a daily driver
Hi, Botchi. I'm looking for a new car to replace my old Honda Civic. I work for one of the country's largest financial institutions, so I am constantly whizzing about Makati, Ortigas, and my home down south.I'm considering
No turbo? No problem
With four trophies in last year's Philippine Car of the Year Awards and several Stig Awards from Top Gear, Mazda is used to being in the spotlight. But the Mazda 3, sadly, has recently been overshadowed by the fancy new Civic.
What’s old is still new(ish)
I have fond memories of our Lancer. My dad's first brand-new car was a 1995 Mitsubishi Lancer GLXi, and it had a 1.6-liter SOHC engine with 16-valves (wow!), power steering, windows and locks, and a stereo cassette
'Zoom-Zoom' lives on
My very first car was a Mazda 3 from two generations ago. What I liked about it then was how sporty and agile it was compared to other sedans in its class and price range. Fast forward to 2017, and I find
Which model stands out?
One look at the highly competitive Philippine compact sedan landscape and one thing is immediately apparent: when it comes to this segment, the Japanese definitely know what they're doing. Hell, this is probably an understatement.The Honda Civic, Mazda 3, Mitsubishi
Because everything is better in red
Using the word "sexy" to describe a group of cars might seem odd to non-gearheads. But one look at Mazda Philippines' display at the 2016 Philippine International Motor Show will quickly make a non-believer support our choice of adjective. Maybe

We found out for ourselves in Japan
To be honest, the amount of acronyms and tech terms being thrown into the cars we drive is getting a bit out of hand. In some cases, it's at the point where it's difficult to weed out new, revolutionary innovations
