    Wouldn't we both like 40mpg, WriConsult. That said, I expect our boring, old, tried and true drive train to last for a while. There has to be more spirited performance with a gdi engine. The ET has a good suspension and is hard to beat there. BTW, as a delivery driver- subcontractor, I know exactly what it's like to not be able to fit 5 boxes inside my car because the dims were 1" too large. The Mazda3 hatchback has got to be a very viable choice for many people. The small SkyActivD on this vehicle would be very interesting.

    Got that right. The only thing the Mazda3 has on our cars in the handling department is less-numb steering. I'll be letting myself be content with 36mpg actual (instead of the 42-45mpg I'd get with the Mazda3) for a number of years yet to come.

    Mazda just announced that the total production volume of the Mazda3 reached five million vehicles at the end of April 2016. It is the second Mazda to reach five million units of production.

    The Mazda3 sets a new record for Mazda by achieving the milestone figure in only twelve years and ten months since production of the model commenced in June 2003.

    The Mazda3 is a core model for Mazda, accounting for approximately one third of the company’s annual sales volume. It is manufactured at the Hofu Plant in Japan, Changan Mazda Automobile Co., Ltd., in China, AutoAlliance (Thailand) and Mazda de Mexico Vehicle Operation in Mexico. It is also assembled in Malaysia and Vietnam.

    Since the first generation, Mazda has consistently worked to exceed expectations with the Mazda3, refining its dynamic design and responsive and enjoyable driving performance. Currently in its third generation, the Mazda3 was fully redesigned in 2013, adopting SKYACTIV Tech and KODO—Soul of Motion design language to join Mazda’s new-generation lineup.
