2005 Mazda Mazda6 i 4dr Sports Sedan (2.3L 4cyl 5M)
Just picked up my 5i Hatch last weekend. So far am loving it. Have the 2.3 5 speed. The V6 accelerates quicker, but the 4 felt more balanced. Better mpg, and hopefully lower maintenance will be a bonus. The space offered by the hatch is huge, and it looks great. Practical, sporty, and fun to drive....what a combo. Price was right with incentives too.
Handling. Feels like it's on rails.
Rear visibility is a little cramped in the hatch, not sure what could be done to improve though. Offer XM radio as a dealer option....only Sirius offered now.
