What's the used Mazda 626 hatchback like?
There is nothing exciting or inspiring about a 626, but it will give years of dependable, efficient and inexpensive service.
It's not a looker, inside or out. However, that cabin is efficient, durable, reasonably well equipped and space is average for the class. The luggage area, too, is perfectly adequate; although, naturally, this hatch is more practical than its saloon sister.
