2005 Mazda3

Enlarge Photo
The Mazda3 replaced the former Protégé in Mazda's lineup last year and continues for 2005 as an attractive and somewhat sporty compact-car alternative. Available in sedan and hatchback versions, the Mazda3 shares platforms with the Volvo S40 sedan and V50 wagon, and its relatively long wheelbase affords a roomy interior. A 150-horsepower 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine powers the base model, while the "s" versions offer a 2.3-liter four-cylinder that generates a healthier 160 horses. A five-speed manual transmission comes standard and a four-speed automatic is optional. Available features include anti-lock brakes with electronic brakeforce distribution, front-side and side-curtain airbags, a navigation system, and high-intensity xenon headlamps.

My 2016 Mazda3 HB is a solid, comfortable, small car that gets better the more enthusiastically is it driven. It's really a 4-dr coupe as there's not a lot of rear seat/leg room. It's agile in town with good... + More »
