The highly-anticipated all-new Mazda 3 is finally here and although prices may seem steep, as both the hatchback and sedan models are fully imported, the price range between RM139k to RM160k would be a real test between what is sensible and what the heart wants.
The microscope would no doubt be on the 1.5-litre models, as most would probably opt for them so it’s going to be interesting to see how competent the engine would be as the Mazda 3 isn’t exactly light – weighing just under 1.4 tonnes.
What do you think boys and girls? Can inexplicable beauty and abject desire trump logic? Is it worth spending RM139k on a car that don’t even come with leather seats?
