Build-quality to the bone!
Well-behaved on the road - sporty setup of the springs.
Diesel-engine pulls like a train (320 Nm/2000 rpm), though not the most fuel-efficient of the diesel-breed.
The engine is rather noisy at low speed - especially when you accelerates. Less recognisable at greater speeds.
Compared with my previous 2001 VW Passat, the interior in the Mazda feels much more robust and a quality-feel I never felt in the somewhat fragile Volkswagen.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
