2014 Mazda MAZDA3 i Touring 4dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 6A)
picked up and drove it home (1000 miles).
44 and 45 mpg on two stretches (not all flat), 35mpg through high mountains/hills at 65 mph.
best handling car i've had, feels like rwd.
if you can get the 2.5L model, esp w/ a 6 speed it would be a blast.
i couldn't swing the extra money at the time.
steering feel, interior, mpg
if mazda could just get the road noise on rough pavement controlled a bit better this might be a perfect car w/ the 2.5L
