2013 Mazda Mazda3

The Mazda3 took home the Vincentric Best Value in America award, bumping the Kia Forte 5-Door from its two year reign at number one. Entering the winner's circle with lower than expected ownership costs alongside its strength in low fuel costs, the Mazda3 proved itself as the best value in this compact hatchback segment.
