2005 Mazda Mazda3 s 4dr Hatchback (2.3L 4cyl 5M)
Review
I looked at the Mazda3 because it is built on the new Ford Focus platform. I owned a 03 Focus and loved the sporty chassis...and sadly the new Focus has not been released in the US yet. When I drove the Mazda3 I was amazed at how accomplished the vehicle was and it definitely has gone up a class into semi-luxury while still being fun and sporty to drive. I travel to the UK frequently on business and read the discerning journalism on cars. The Mazda3 is highly rated along with the new Focus.My experience has supported that and I am now a proud owner of the 2.3 hatchback.
Favorite Features
I love it's slightly retro looks and chunky rear. Comfort and handling are also exceptional.I also like the two- tone cloth seats and lit dash dials.
Suggested Improvements
Would be good to have ABS as standard.
