2005 Mazda Mazda6 i Sport 4dr Hatchback (2.3L 4cyl 5M)
I wanted to get the V6 model, but couldn't afford it. Even though I had to "settle" for the 4 banger I am very impressed with its performance, gas mileage, and features. My last car was a Mazda MX-6 V6, and this has the same horsepower and performance, with better mileage and better interior. I love the sporty look and looks I get with this car! If you want a huge trunk (big enough to sleep in comfortably!). get the hatch -- you won't be disappointed.
Sporty interior and exterior, color of instrument panel, manual shifting automatic, steering wheel volume and mode controls. TONS of trunk space, rear window wiper, The fact that there aren't a million of them on the road like some other cars.
More color choices, bendable side mirrors, included tape deck.
