2012 Mazda 3: I Love Hatchbacks

June 15, 2012

Don't you? They are so practical. Maybe it's because I love my old Acura Integra. I hauled around so many different sized and shaped things in that car. I don't drive it enough anymore.

I always thought of hatchbacks as young people cars. There were a lot of them in my college parking lot. But it seems that retirees and empty nesters are interested in them, too.

Whenever I have the Mazda 3 in my driveway, my older neighbors ask me about it. How does it drive? Does it get good mileage? Yesterday someone commented on the color then asked if there was a Mazda dealer nearby. They have wide appeal.

What's your favorite hatchback on the market?
