Originally wanted to look at the Touring Sport, but read reviews, watched hours of video and went to the local showroom. Saw the sedan and then next to it was something I never would have considered -- the hatchback!
The style was incredible. So I took the sedan for a test drive and then came back to scheduled a drive in the Grand Touring and of course the hatchback.
Got in the hatchback first and my decision was made! We spent the next few hours making arrangements to order the 2.5 in the color and the exact specs I wanted.
I won't consider any other make. Coming from a long line of Nissan's, the Mazda is incredible. Rides like my 17 year old Sentra did, smooth and hugs the road.
Some of the features took getting used to but now I'm in love!!!!!
I wish I had researched this vehicle sooner.
For the first time in a long while, I look forward to having to get in the vehicle and drive somewhere. The comfort, the control, the safety is far beyond what I would have hoped for and frankly just didn't trust the reviews.
I'm a full believer and fan of Mazda and most especially my 2.5 Touring hatchback :)
I would recommend this vehicle to a friend: YES
