2010 Mazda Mazda3 s Grand Touring 4dr Hatchback (2.5L 4cyl 6M)
Went from a Lexus IS 250 to a Mazda 3 GT with the tech and bose package. Couldn't be happier. For well over $12,000 less than the Lexus, I get far more features (heated seats, rain sensing wipers, seat memory, bluetooth phone AND music streaming, xenon adaptive headlights, Navigation, etc.). Much more fun to drive than the Lexus (got the 6sp manual on the 3). For the price (I got well under invoice) there is nothing that can compare.
All the tech features listed above. Nav system is better than you'd think, it's basic but does a great job, is very fast and I'm now a fan of steering wheel mounted nav controls.
