It is quick on its reflexes - what you input immidietely is executed. In winding roads it is very presise compared to other cars I have driven (in this class). Very short turning radius - great for parking in tight spaces.
Again, it reacts quickly. It is not that quick imperically, but there is plenty of torque in real world driving conditions (when RPMs are below 3000).
It is hard to put into words, but you have a good feel (?) on how the brakes perform, and they feel solid and able to stop well in an extreme condition - though I have never encountered one. While everyday driving, they are very, very enjoyable to operate
I seem to like almost all the cars they produce. Sporty ones (mx-5, rx-8) and not so sporty ones (CX suvs, mazda6). Besides, Zoom-Zoom!
Theyy are plenty. Go over the models, their pricing, and be sure to compare with others.
