Months ago, we already knew that the all-new Mazda 3 was coming in 2014. Heck, we even had a good idea that it’ll be launched sometime in April. But in all honestly, we were blown away when Mazda Philippines actually dared to do the unthinkable.
New models are typically launched in parties held in some fancy events place. That’s just how it goes. But never have I encountered anyone pull a surprise by launching one on the very morning of a 572 km road trip. These guys invited us to Baler, Aurora without telling us what we were gonna drive. And come that fateful day, there were 10 brand-spanking-new Mazda 3s that were just waiting to be hooned. Awesome!
