The Mazda3 is an amazing car. I have to make a long commute to work every day, and I love making that long drive because i love driving my Mazda3. Eventhough it is a sedan, I feel like I am driving a sports car. It has amazing acceleration and braking capabilities, smooth shifting, and a wonderful smooth ride. Eventhough the s model is more expensive than the i, with the s you get more for your money and I think it is a better value.
I am fairly short, but it has a seat height adjuster, lumbar support and the standard features for the driver's comfort. The back seat folds down 60/40 and the trunk is decievingly large. When sitting in the back, There is plently of leg room, and all seats are comfotable.
I am not a fan of the red dash lights. I would love to see the forest green color in the s model as well as the i.
