2014 Mazda 3 i Touring 4dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 6M)
I made up my mind on the Mazda 3 after one test drive. We chose the Pearl White i-Touring manual hatchback with Navigation and Tech Package. The 2.0 engine is strong enough to merge onto freeways. Ride is firm and comfortable. Road noise is on the low side for the compact car segment. Interior finish is nice and pleasant. The clutch and stick shift very smoothly. After a little over 1000 miles, our gas mileage is similar to the EPA rating. Very happy with the purchase.
Touch screen and knob control navigation and entertainment system. Blind spot warning system. Backup camera and backup warning system.
My i-phone 4 is not compatible with the text messaging function of the info system. Not able to connect to server for map update yet.
