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.
We love driving this car. The handling feels sporty, yet the ride is smooth and comfortable. The gas mileage surpasses that of some hybrids. We don't often chauffer passengers, but when we do, the back seat comfortably seats two. We have gotten three passengers in the back seat for a short distance, without it feeling terribly cramped. We enjoy the technological features as well.

This car is a lot of fun to drive! I look forward to driving with the sunroof open any chance I get. It has some decent pick-up speed. It's hard to not go over the speed limit! Whoever thought of the marketing slogan for this car was right on point! "zoom zoom"
