This sun shade is MUCH more substantial than the ones that you will purchase at a convenience auto supply store. It is a perfect fit for 2018 Mazda3 Hatchback. Because of the higher quality construction, it is easier to open, outside of the vehicle.
This sun shade fits around the windshield very good but is hard to get around the mirror (which Mazda mounted too low). It is somewhat heavy too as though the panels are made of some kind of wood or something and is not very flexible. My wife doesn't like to use it as it is hard to manage for her. I'm keeping it because it is a very good sun screen as the car interior is very dark when you install it. It also has a bag to put it in.

Purchased this sun shade for my daughters new Mazda 3. It is of high quality and is a perfect fit. A little pricy but worth it.
