This is primarily my wife's car and was purchased for its 5-door functionality and fun to drive quotient. In our fledgling 2 days with the car we are most impressed! The fit and finish is far beyond what we expected from a 25K wagonette. The handling and acceleration are, as expected, fantastic. The thing that really surprised me was how "tight" and quiet the car is. I expected a more uncompromising driving experience, but have thus far been rewarded with both performance and refinement. Bravo Mazda, well done!
