2007 Mazda Mazdaspeed Mazda6 Sport 4dr Sport Sedan AWD (2.3L 4cyl Turbo 6M)
You might not be able to get better value for the money than this car. It's got all the power you'd ever need, has plenty of room, and the fit and finish are gorgeous. Love the center stack, console trim. Although the 2.3L turbo has a tiny bit more turbo lag than the GTI/A3, it's quite minimal. The styling is also a huge plus. Overall it's slightly understated, but the bad domed hood, 18" rims and upgrading styling really give it that mean look. Highly recommended!
AWD, beautiful 18" rims, automatic climate control, gray finish on the center stack/ center console and nice cloth seats (any other car I would've gotten leather).
MP3 auxiliary input, non-Bose speaker package. If there's any more juice to be squeezed out of the engine, I'd rather it go to gas mileage than horse power.
