1992 Mazda MX-3 GS 2dr Hatchback
In June of 1992 I took delivery on my Elegant Beige Auto V6 GS. Ive been driving the MX since with a grin on my face. The car featured a revolutionary engine for the time. It remains the only 1.8L V6 in existance. Although peak output shows up only north of 4000 RPM, power builds smoothly. If thats not enough for the enthusiast in you, you can pounce on the gas pedal and enjoy a frantic acceleration to 60+MPH in just under 8 seconds. Interior trim is clean and easy to navigate. Controls are within fingertip range and laid out very thoughtfully. Rear seats are functional and amazingly useful for children and (adults under 5'9") Trunk space is great for a small car.
Love the power sunroof. Upgraded stereo and speakers add to a pleasant driving experience. Seats are very comfortable and hold well during spirited driving. Long range trips are no worry in this small sports car, as comfort was obviously very important to Mazda engineers.
An aftermarket air filter will allow the engine to breathe easier giving slightly better pickup and MPG. A +1 wheel upgrade to 16" wheels completely freshened the look of the vehicle and still kept ride quality at factory levels.
