The Mazda is a great car, I traded a 2010 3 Sport GT and it drives and handles very similar to the new Focus. But the 3s interior paled in comparison to my new Focus (and they both had leather). Road noise is also more prevalent in the Mazda since they don't use much insulation under the carpeting.
