2010 Mazda Mazda3 s Sport 4dr Hatchback (2.5L 4cyl 6M)
Great car for the money. It has good power and a hint of exhaust note that make it fun to drive and it handles well. The updated styling looks good, and the hatchback is convenient for hauling small loads. The only slight drawback is the fuel economy - I'm averaging 24.2 mpg w/ 2500 miles driven. I suppose if it had 20+ less horsepower and was slightly smaller like the Civic it would be better. I'll take fun to drive and a couple less mpg.
Bluetooth, blue ambient lighting, sporty styling, hint of exhaust note.
