2003 Mazda Mazdaspeed Protege New 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 5M)

Review

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.

Favorite Features

Handling and acceleration, yet driveable as an everday vehicle. Removable back seat turns into Hatchback for max cargo. An aexcellent pkg.

Suggested Improvements

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.
