I have had the Mazda 3 iSport for about 3 weeks now and I find it is fun to drive. However, the road noise on the highway is overwhelming.
Mazda could have spent a few more bucks insulating for road noise.
Additionally, the back seat legroom could have used a few more inches.
The car though is very fun to drive and the accelaration is great.
You do not have to worry about getting up to speed on highway on-ramps.
Favorite features would be the handling and the acceleration capabilities.
I would strongly suggest a quiter ride and a little more rear seat legroom.
