"This is the first Mazda I have ever purchased. The Speed3 GT has so much value, from the off-the-charts performance at this price point, to the interior styling, that I've become a hard core Mazda fan.
I am an avid cyclist and golfer so the roominess of the hatchback was the initial attraction. I highly recommend this vehicle to any consumer who needs the room for outdoor gear and family (or friends) but who also is a driving enthusiast.
The only downside... some passengers might not be too keen on the sports suspension. The easy remedy is to allow them to drive, just once, and they'll be convinced it’s all worth it."
