2012 Mazda Mazda2 Sport 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl 5M)
Bought this car new and have put on 2000 miles so far. Got the Sport because I couldn't find any Touring models with manuals in my area.
Excellent handling, I really feel like I can toss this car around. The shifter is very smooth and quick.
At first I was worried about the 100hp but while it won't knock you back in your seat during acceleration it is more than adequate(previous car was a 9-3 Saab).
Personally I like the simpleness of the car, the dash is basic and for an economy car it's what it should be. I've been averaging 33 mpg with most of my driving at 70 mph on the highway.
Basically it is what most of the reviews say, a fun to drive economy car.
