2017 Mazda MAZDA3 Touring 2.5 Hatchback Review
says:
Very nice car to drive. It was my second choice overall. Better handling and steering feel than Civic 1.5T. Engine is good but not as refined as Civic 1.5T (has both better acceleration and fuel economy). Cons: Does not have Android Auto / Car Play. Active safety only in highest trim. Back seat is smaller than competitors. Fuel economy is okay, but not great. Would not hesitate to recommend if the cons dont bother you.
