2007 Mazda Mazda3 s Grand Touring 4dr Hatchback (2.3L 4cyl 5A)
After tons of research considering the Honda civic Si, VW GTI mkV, Subaru impreza 2.5i, came to the conclusion of getting the Mazda 3 GT wagon. It has great interior room, looks great, and handles and preforms like a $30k car.
HID headlights! Huge glove compartment, blue & red lit gauges, cargo room paint (Whitewater pearl mica), peppy engine, smooth transmission, leather seats, LED tail lights, Bose system - list just goes on....
Some of interior plastics could be of better quality. Visors could have sturdier feel and vanity lights. Better trunk lighting, sturdier hood release latch but the more time I spend in the car the less I notice improvement points.
