I'm no mazda expert, this is my first one and also though I'm an IT professional, I don't care much about do dads, just enjoying my drive.(cornering, acceleration, reliability of both)
That being said this is a bottom end mazda-3 2013 hatchback VS my 2012 focus SE and I see
mazda has dual front ac controls passenger and driver
electronic key is sensed by car and push button start/stop , open doors and lock car never once using a key
Iphone usb port charges phone and plays music thru radio and dash/wheel controls iphone music.
But this is all secondary to driveability and fun on the road to me.
