2010 Mazda 3 s Grand Touring 4dr Hatchback (2.5L 4cyl 6M)


Great choice if you like to drive, feels like a premium car in most respects. The ride is firm but still comfortable, and the steering is very precise and well weighted. I love the 6sp manual, but I wish 6th gear was a little longer for better highway fuel economy. Power from the 2.5 is good (certainly much better than in most other compacts), but the engine may be the one point where the 3 does not fully live up to the premium image. If pushed, it sounds a bit coarse at times and other engines of the same size get more power and better fuel economy. The interior is great with many luxury features not expected in this class. Overall a very European driving experience. Highly recommended!

Best Features

handling, 6sp manual, hatchback versatility, upscale interior, build-quality appears to be first rate

Worst Features

only so-so fuel economy, the colors of the multi-info display and the climate control display clash
