A new kind of compact

2014 Mazda Mazda3 i Touring 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 6A)
Review
Forget everything you know about compact cars. I traded in my 2013 Mazda 3 for the just released 2014, and it's a totally different kind of car. Interior is fitted with high-end materials for the dash and controls, and feels more like a luxury car. The handling and suspension are both top rate... you can be aggressive with your drive with good steering feel, and the harshness of the prior model has all been eliminated. The 2.0 engine is fine for day to day driving, but it lags a little when full power is required.
Favorite Features
Interior quality is the best I've seen in this class of car. Everything feels luxurious. The Infotainment System with navigation, Bose and communication upgrades is an excellent package. It's very intuitive to use once past the small learning curve. Seat comfort is much improved over the old model, with more interior room. Blind-spot monitoring is a very useful feature. The ride is splendid, as it's firm, sporty but always comfortable at the same time. A very balanced car that should appeal to all age demographics, and not just for the young kids anymore. I've heard others say it's like driving a small Mazda 6.
Suggested Improvements
No improvements to make, unless you desire the most power. Buy the S model if you need the extra horsepower, but otherwise the I models are the best value.
