I would actually recommend this car for someone who won't have people in the backseat very often. It is a small car and exactly what I was looking for (and more) for our second vehicle, but it would be too small for a family car unless everyone is under 5'5". My 6'2" honey can squeeze in fairly comfortably in the driver's seat, but only the dogs can fit in the seat behind him. It's perfect for zipping around the city and squeezing in small parking spots.
Awsome drive. Look back to 1999 Mellinia

Because the car gets great gas mileage, and drives very comfortable. I am used to power seats. With the 6 position driver seat and adjustable lumbar support, I found my seat position with the 6 position adjustable driver seat, I was lucky to have a positon or two that fits. Otherwise, the car is so much fun drive. I also notice with the dimensions of the car, the I Touring Mazda 3 gets few if any dings from other car doors because if you center the car in the parking space, You are as far from other cars.
