The 2010 Mazda 3i Touring (Auto) is a really fun car to drive. It's has a very tight feel and handles extremely well. Although the ride may be to firm for some the driver really gets a feel of the road. The styling both exterior and interior crush the competition, (Civic, Corolla, Colbalt & Focus). The 3 is a little bit small in the drivers seat and prob would not be comfortable for 6'2" or taller drivers. The quality and set up of the interior controls are outstanding. The funnest and most enjoyable car to drive in its class...ZOOM ZOOM
Handling, quick acceleration, styling, interior lights and controls. Auto and manual shift mode trans., Headlights are extremely powerful even without high beams makes driving at night safer and easier.
Fuel Economy, I drive 75% hwy and average around 28 mpg. According to the EPA estimated avg MPG should be around 31mpg. Better factor speakers, the stock ones are not bad but could be better. Mazda does offer a Bose speaker upgrade though.
