Sedan > Hatch

That 3 sedan looks like it's going to be a winner, as long as they can fill the car with decent content. Hyundai's content level is so high on even their small cars, it's making other companies play catch up. Thanks Hyundai, for stiffening the competition.

Terrific looking small sedan. And the interior shots I saw seem to show a better interior design than the 6!

been noticing so many more cars in red these days and that i generally like them more in that color. good to see vs. the tired old silver, black, white.

How about a fire-engine red 2010 Corolla? What a hot looking car!

My parents bought it new when my son was learning his colours. Their first choice was a fire-engine yellow (my son's favourite colour at that time) but, alas, hot Corollas don't come in yellow.

Nothing in this class even comes close to it's bold and sleek design. And of course it's a Mazda which means its the "BMW" of it's segment in terms handling

I have a low mileage 2011 Mazda3 and don't need a replacement, but this new one has given me the itch. Anxious to see it in person.

Default Official: 40 MPG Highway

The 2014 Mazda 3 hatchback has just been officially rated 29/40 by the EPA.

Funny how all these new small cars, whether sub-compact or compact are landing at 40 MPG. Not 39. Not 41.

Hatch beats Sedan, hands down. No questions asked. KO.

I am getting one just for the heck of it.
