Decent economy car

2013 Mazda Mazda3 i Touring 4dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 6M)
Review
Of so many choices in the compact car market, Mazda's marketing motto has been "Zoom Zoom". Well, I bought into that hype but found the car to be just one of the economy compact cars. It gets decent mileage and it is fun to drive if you rev the engine and give up the mileage. You do pay a bit more than other compacts for the privilege of enjoying the "Zoom Zoom" - which is really about the car handling, not the acceleration. Interior is a bit old compare to Hyundai/Kia. The major surprise that I found is the terrible road noise. Don't know if it's the factory tires or the car itself, but this is one of the nosiest compact!
Favorite Features
Smooth gear shifts and very forgiving clutch
Suggested Improvements
Reduce road noise. Give more leg room on the back seat by sacrificing the cargo area. Really, really, get rid of that grin in the front!
