All-new Mazda 3 wins Honest John 2019 Car of the Year Award

The All-new Mazda 3 adds another accolade to its collection, being awarded the Best Family Car by Honest John in their 2019 Car of the Year Awards.

We’re still just under two weeks off the launch of the All-new Mazda 3, and it’s already raking in the awards. Following on from its win at the Red Dot Design product design awards, the Mazda 3 has been awarded “Best Family Car” by Honest John. It beats established rivals like the Ford Focus and Honda Civic, further proving that this new era of Mazda is bringing something truly special.

The awards themselves, unlike most industry awards, are based on reviews from actual owners, buyers, and readers of This means that not only is the Mazda 3 becoming a favourite among experts and critics, but also the people who will be getting behind the wheel when this stunning hatchback hits the market on 18th May.

Talking about the Mazda 3’s win, Honest John Editor David Ross stated:

“The fact that the Mazda 3 – a car that’s only just been launched – has generated more interest with our readers than any other family car in the last 12 months, shows just how popular and highly regarded it is. Mazda is ticking all the right boxes with models like the CX-3 and latest 6, so we have little doubt that the 3 will prove to be just as impressive.”

The new model offers improved interior space and comfort, while still giving drivers an exciting driving experience.  It also provides peace of mind, with a wide range of safety features included as standard.
