Mazda 3 i

With an impressive list of standard features, attractive and well finished interior, sublime handling, four speed automatic with added fifth gear and a powerful front wheel drive, 2008 Mazda3 i is a dream economy sedan that you should choose. An economy car with superstar athleticism, the performance of this superb car can’t be mistaken by anything less than the best. Compared to cars listed in the economy price hot list, this sedan makes a lot of difference in its class. The Mazda3 model was first released in mid year 2004 and up to this day Mazda improved the style and feature of this sedan reviving its luster, waiting again to be crowned as a champion vehicle with less the price. Its design may not be considered as classy as its competitor and not in the top grade of its breed, but rest assured that it is a notch higher considering its low price compared to other types.

Mazda3 i is a 2.0-liter, four cylinder engine good for 148 horse power and 135 pound-feet of torque. Basically, not at the top fuel efficient car, but since it is offered in frugality, driving it is still advised. It’s steering is very good and acceleration is a breeze. With a 5th gear automatic as a bonus, compared to the 4 gear auto of the conventional automatic cars, Mazda3 is a step away from the mundane.

The cabin of the dream car is quite promising. With wide range of adjustment due to the sedan’s tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, it is easy to find a workable position for driving comfort. Its backseat is quite spacious, truly made for passenger comfort.

The cars functions is visible and within reach. Its features are not complicated and first time users won’t spend much time understanding what functions does each button and gauge make. It has a remote auxiliary audio control on the steering wheel, making it easier to shift music depending on your mood. Its trunk is big enough to put your picnic gadgets and sports stuff. The roof of the compartment is lined making it more spacious indeed. Its finish might not be as elegant to its Volkswagen and Chevrolet counterpart but to my eyes it’s classy and elegant just like the formers.

It has front, side and head (the side and head are optional) airbags with antilock breaks for its safety features. With firm, intuitive pedal and good initial bite as breaks truly making this a Mazda a remarkable one.

With a very sporty steering, agile, good grip and balance, quite elegant design this hot stuff is a must have. The best part of it is that, you can have one without putting a choke lock in your wallet.
