2007 Mazda RX-8 Grand Touring 4dr Coupe (1.3L 2rtr 6M)

Review

Four months and 6000 miles into my ownership experience and no issues. I still look forward to every drive. Max. mpg was 19.8 with a minimum of 15.8 on first tank fill, average is about 18 in mixed driving. Low rpm shifts and slower highway speeds should yield about 20 mpg. Torque is low compared to larger displacement 6 and 8 cylinder engines, but comparable to other small naturally aspirated engines such as honda's s2000 and civic si, both of which also have larger displacements. Power builds steadily all the way to its 9000 rpm readline. Handling is very secure, composed and predictable even at its limit. Distinctive styling, inspiring performance, comfortable ride and seating for 4 adults.

Favorite Features

Rotary smoothness, precise handling, interior design, keyless entry and ignition, exotic exterior styling, low price, Bose audio, rarely seen in area.

Suggested Improvements

More front headroom, stereo inputs and hard drive music storage, turbo option.
