I really only considered the Focus and the Mazda 3 Sport when looking at cars (The Imprezza too, but, not reallyy). I knew both cars were very similar and I was more impressed by the Mazda3 originally on the test drive but that was simply because the salesman let me have a much, much more aggressive drive.

When it came down to it, the extra $4,000 for the Mazda didn't seem worth it, especially since the interior really felt "cheap" to me and I would be losing the touch screen and nav of the Focus.

That said. The Mazda 3 hatch looks damn good from the outside.
