The Mazda 3 GT with the Luxury Package, has a 156-horsepower 2.3-liter engine, and offers equipment that used to be reserved for high-end luxury cars: bi-xenon headlights, 17-inch wheels, rain-sensing windshield wipers and heated seats.
It's fun to drive! It has a sporty character and the 2.3-liter unit is peppy and reaches its redline very rapidly. The generous amount of torque makes for interesting acceleration and passing times.
The suspension is a little hard, but it's the price to pay for the road manners of the GT version. The car hangs on in curves with precise and direct steering and entices to divert from the commute to work in order to have some fun in nearby countryside back roads.
Well-finished interior! The dashboard is pretty with its silver trim pieces. The front seats are comfortable and offer good lateral support for those spirited driving moments. The audio and cruise control buttons are perfectly placed on the steering wheel spokes. The glovebox is so deep that a school binder can fit in it...
As for fuel economy, I average 10.3 L/100 km. The car has some cosmetic damage, rust, a cracked front and rear bumper but overall is in really nice condition. Fresh oil change, coolant flush, cabin air filter changed, all season tires put on last year and I'll throw in the winter tires+rims. The car runs great and we have had no major problems or concerns with it. We're the original owners of the vehicle!
