What's the used Mazda 3 saloon like?

Underneath, the Mazda 3 shares its running gear with the Ford Focus, which is among the best small hatches to drive and strongly built, too.

The Mazda responds sweetly to the steering and brakes. The ride, although firm at low speeds, is rarely jarring. Once on the open road, this smooths out, and you can appreciate the car's superb body control.
