2003 Mazda Mazdaspeed Protege New 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 5M)
Killer auto - no comparison in market
segment. Nimble, outstandig
suspension, and a rocket. Acceleration
is excellent with the stock turbo. MP3
and 450w sound kicks. Snug seating. A
wolf in sheep's clothing. Compared at
time of purchase with new rx8, and
while not up to par with the Wankel @
240hp, it accelerates and handles
pretty darn close, and for half the
price :) Don;t miss out - rumour not
being offered next year.
Handling and acceleration, yet
driveable as an everday vehicle.
Removable back seat turns into
Hatchback for max cargo. An aexcellent
Perhaps a sunroof, although would
alter the price, which was a critical
decision factor. Can live without it,
otherwise, exceptionally enginnered
for balance, fun, sport, and mods.
