Mazda 3 here - it handles like a sports car. The price is right and it is such a better driver than its competition. Bucket seats feel like Recaro's. It has front wheel drive on 16" wheels with Mud & Snow tires, and goes great in light snow. I bought it as an econo-commuter car, so got the I model which is not turbo. It sips gas, accelerates quickly and never needs maintenance. I like driving it. None of its competition come close - they all lug, have mushy clutches or weird seats.
