Best of Both Worlds
By mandowen on


2012 Mazda 3 i Grand Touring 4dr Hatchback w/SKYACTIV-G (2.0L 4cyl 6A)


This car will serve different needs, depending on your mood. If you are feeling economical, the fuel efficiency is great. I got over 41 mpg on a recent road trip. If you want to have some driving fun, the car is very responsive and, although I have the automatic, you can flip it into manual mode for more control. The hatchback is very roomy and I recently brought home my son's dorm refrigerator in it. Great car!

Best Features

Economy, responsiveness, flexible space.

Worst Features

It gets a little noisy on rough pavements, though most of the time I don't notice it. Not sure if it's the tires or just the insulation.
