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.
For the average college student this car perfect. Great gas mileage without the cost of feeling sluggish. the CVT transmission makes it a smooth ride, and the car's acceleration is enough for people who want to feel quick. Trunk and cargo space allows you to haul around 3 other people and have plenty of comfortable space.
This year of Mazda 3's are easily maintained, and have very few recalls. The ones that exist are minor blemishes.
With a combination of over 250 horses and 260 lb/ft of torque on tap, plus Mazda's incredible suspension and handling work, phenomenal transmission, and famously flawless ergonomics, this is the most fun car I've ever owned. Plus, it comfortably fits an infant car seat, a stroller, a full load of groceries, two dogs, and to 6ft adults at the same time, which is pretty incredible. All the usefulness of a 5-door with the no-compromises feel of a performance vehicle. It's everything I've ever wanted.
