The Mazda3 is on a roll. It is one of three finalists for the 2014 North American Car of the Year, a prize to be handed out at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit in mid-January.
Previously, the Automobile Journalists Association of Canada (AJAC) declared it Best New Small Car (under $21,000) – automatically making it a finalist for Canadian Car of the Year. The winner will be announced at the Canadian International Auto Show in Toronto in February.
The compact car was also named to the the seven-car shortlist for 2014 European Car of the Year. Will we be talking about it going three-for-three at the Geneva Motor Show on March 3?
