This is the best handling and best looking car in the segment. It has an adequate amount of power but another 20 horsepower would go a long way. Although the trade off is the exceptional fuel economy. The stock tires create a little too much road noise on rough surfaces but nicer tires can always be installed. The fact of the matter is that if you enjoy driving and need a good commuter than this is the only choice.
Mazda Handling and Style
2010 Mazda Mazda3Sam P - Mesa, AZ01/29/2016
The 2010 Mazda 3 rides firm, but that's because the responsive suspension is tuned for agile driving. The optional dynamic stability control serves to further smooth or sharpen the ride characteristics. A nice contribution to the genre of "driver's cars" pretending to be family sedans.
Stylish, fun to drive car
