2009 Mazda Mazda3 s Grand Touring 4dr Sedan (2.3L 4cyl 5M)
Honestly, best looking interior car in its class - Civic has nothing on this. Exterior is very stylish. 2.3 could do better on fuel economy, but it's still much better than a 6 cylinder. This the best car for bang-for-your-buck. You get so much - safety options, toys and gadgets and styling all in a very reliable lil car.
Attention to interior trim detail - Silver trim. Seats are very comfortable. Gear box is short and sweet.
2009 and poor iPod configuration? Give me a break! Add iPod with display! Paint quality could be better. Then again it's an entry level ecobox.
