2010 Mazda Mazda3 s Grand Touring 4dr Hatchback (2.5L 4cyl 5A)
Just stepped down from an Audi A6 to a gun metal blue Mazda 3 GT (or did I). Love this car after just a week of ownership. Design, build, performance are all top notch for it's class. Test drove this and a Mazda 6 (we already own a CX-7) and found that I liked the 3 better. I couldn't afford the six cylinder Mazda 6 and the 4 cyc appeared way down on power. Best bang for my buck. We now own 2 Mazdas with this being the fourth. No regrets.
Style, performance, bluetooth, performance, Adaptive headlights, performance, LED tail lights, and did I mention the performance? Quick and nimble.
RDS, colored info screen and ability to get the advanced key (with out nav). I would also like to see an AWD version if performance and cost could be kept down.
