2006 Mazda Mazda3 s Grand Touring 4dr Hatchback (2.3L 4cyl 5M)
Excellent handling and suspension. Good braking with all disk brakes. Power and torque is a little low; could use more power like 180hp and 180lbs. torque. Interior and exterior styling is great with good quality. I like the side turn indicators which many cars don't have. Fully loaded for $21K (sunroof, leather, xenon, heated seats, clear led tail lights, 17 inch rims, 6-CD BOSE). Great car at a great price. I highly recommend it.
Hatch, black leather seats (front heated), xenon headlights, 5 speed manual transmission, price ($21K), clear led tail lights, 17 inch rims, sunroof, side turn indicators, door handles, BOSE Sound.
More powerful engine with at least 180hp and 180lbs torque; it would go great with a 6 speed manual transmission.
