What alternatives should I consider to a used Mazda 3 hatchback?

Verdict

More character than past small Mazdas, but every bit as practical

  • The 3 has a sparkling drive
  • and it's versatile, well priced and cheaper than a VW Golf
  • It has a firm-ish ride in town, and there's motorway wind roar
  • It's also frugal, but the diesel is weak
