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

Verdict

It's more characterful than past small Mazdas, but this saloon isn't as practical as its hatchback brother

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