2002 Mazda Protege LX 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)

Review

As an owner of a 2002 Civic DX, I compared this with the Protege LX back to back. Both are similarly equipped and priced very closely (CDN 24000 range, tax in). I sit a little higher in the Protege but I can find a better seating position. Accelerating, the Civic feels sluggish. Stopping or slowing down, the Civic's brakes seem too touchy, and it has more lean when going around a corner. The Mazda Protege is more fun to drive. Enough said.

Favorite Features

Sporty handling, peppy acceleration from 2.0L 4 Cyl engine. Good seating position. Great looking exterior.

Suggested Improvements

Heat, Vent, A/C, (HVAC)controls - try using knobs like you did with your radio. Extend the armrest a little.
