I love these. I looked at them at my local dealer after they came out. I think the Focus has a bit more room and my focus was about $8k cheaper. The car I really want is the new Mazda 6.

I'm 6'-3" and the seats have more travel in the Mazda. The dash makes the car seem to have more room as well. Beyond that I don't know because I don't transport things or people in my car.


I think I went to bright with the lights.

Rather a good match to the Roof, it'll continue the look you started.

I was really expecting it to be much different. I'm happy with the match.

Love the new Mazda 3. Is this a Sport GS (equivalent to the i Grand Touring in the US)?

How's the clutch/shifter feel? I had a chance to drive the 2.0L and 2.5L, both automatic, and came away rather impressed, especially with the 2.5L. Best auto trans I've ever driven, but I'd still take a manual over it. Not sure why Mazda is taking so longer getting the 2.5L/manual combo to the US. Does Canada have that option?

Not a fan of the orange roof but I like the wheels. I like the new design that mazda is putting out on most of the models now. They need to update the MS3 asap. The tablet looking center console display is kinda odd too...makes it look like you could just pick it up and use it. Would look cleaner if it was integrated like usual.

It's pretty close to the I grand touring. There are 3 trim levels with ~2 options each. I have all available options with manual transmission. No 2.5 manual here yet either. The auto is a pretty cool setup and I can see a future in its design. I'm quite happy with the power of the 2.0l I corner quickly and enjoy that more than straight line speeds.

The tablet thing seems to be here to stay. Mercedes and Audi have similar tablet things in their concept cars. It works well and makes the car feel roomier. I didn't like it in pictures either before I went and looked at it.







I'm really happy with it so far.
