Get the midlevel SE trim. The SE features a sport-tuned suspension for better handling. Don’t worry about a stiff ride, although the SE continues to be relatively comfortable on the road. The SE can also be a great bargain considering all of the safety and tech equipment you obtain for the money. Finally, the SE is available with a wide selection of options, so you can pick and choose those that are right for the budget.

Crossover SUVs could be most of the rage, but there’s still something to be said for the tried-and-true midsize sedan. Exhibit A: the 2020 Mazda 3.

Standard on every 2020 Mazda 3 Safety Sense, which is a suite of driver assistance features including adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, lane departure alert with steering assistance, and automatic high beams.

On the next rung up the ladder is the LE.It adds a power-adjustable driver’s seat, 17-inch alloy wheels, a 60/40-split folding back seat and a vehicle alarm. For a sporty dynamic, look at the SE.It adds a sport-tuned suspension, revised steering calibration, 18-inch wheels, simulated-leather upholstery (SofTex) seats and paddle shifters.

As sedans go, the 2020 Mazda 3 stuff-hauling credentials are pretty solid. The cargo area is large and opens wide, plus the back seat is easy to fold down to suit longer items. You will find enough cabin storage options to make a lot of people happy. Loading a vehicle seat is straightforward, too.
 

Small-item storage

7.0

Cabin storage is good however, not stellar. The forward center console bin is great for concealing items but features a hard, slippery floor, so they slide around noisily. The console bin at your elbow is really a decent size, and you will find modest door pockets in leading and rear that are great for small water bottles only.
 

Cargo space

9.0

The 2020 Mazda 3 features a large trunk, and the 60/40-split folding back seat with trunk-mounted release handles make it easy to expand the space. Loading groceries or luggage is helped out by the wide opening and a low liftover height.
 

Child safety seat accommodation

5.0

It’s super easy to mount an automobile seat, with obvious and easy to get at lower anchors and package tray-mounted tether point, both under plastic covers. There’s enough space so your front seat need not be scooted entirely forward.
