1 Answer


The Mazda 3 is considered a sports car by most insurance companies including in Texas. Although it is advised that you shop around you will more than likely get a sports car classification which will cause your rates to get pretty high. Although the Mazda 3 Sudan is considered a sports car, there are a few notable features that will lower your insurance rates in comparison to other sports cars. The anti-lock brake system allows it to stop quickly, the dynamic stability control will help the driver maintain the car under horrible weather conditions, and the traction control system will gauge the engine according to a loss of traction. All these features are considered safety benefits and will limit the rates on the Mazda 3. Some features that may or may not be in the particular Mazda 3 you want to buy that may impact your insurance are electro-hydraulic power steering, a 2.3 DISI turbo engine, and Bluetooth audio capabilities.
