What Our Members Are Saying about the Seat Room and Comfort of the 2009 Mazda Mazda3

2009 Mazda Mazda3 Seat Room and Comfort: Pros
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2010 4dr Hatch 167-horsepower 2.5L I4
6-speed manual FWD
Tilt and telescopic wheel plus the adjustments with the drivers seat had me in a very good/comfortable driving position. Being comfortable allows me to concentrate on the drive ahead instead of being distracted by squirming around in the seat. see full Mazda Mazda3 review
2010 4dr Hatch 167-horsepower 2.5L I4
6-speed manual FWD
Being a 5 door hatch, there is plenty of room back for 2 full size adults or 3 kids/teenagers. The versatility of the hatch makes it feel like a Mini SUV. see full Mazda Mazda3 review
2010 4dr Hatch 167-horsepower 2.5L I4
5-speed shiftable automatic FWD
Very comfortable and form fitting. My butt and back feel supported. Leg room is great. see full Mazda Mazda3 review
2009 4dr Hatch turbocharged 263hp 2.3L I4
6-speed manual FWD
Kids easily able to get in/out of back (4-doors) and often able to take co-workers to lunch (both of which is much more of a hassle with 2-doors). see full Mazda Mazda3 review
2008 4dr Sedan 156-horsepower 2.3L I4
5-speed shiftable automatic FWD
Lots of leg room even with the seat all the way back see full Mazda Mazda3 review

2008 4dr Hatch 156-horsepower 2.3L I4
5-speed shiftable automatic FWD
Well, when the front seats are back, there is little leg room in the back seat -- to be expected in a compact. But, the rear seats are very comfortable and can handle a wider person. see full Mazda Mazda3 review
2008 4dr Sedan 148-horsepower 2.0L I4
4-speed shiftable automatic FWD
Too cramped for an adult see full Mazda Mazda3 review
2008 4dr Hatch 156-horsepower 2.3L I4

Tight and uncomfortable as are most other cars in this class. see full Mazda Mazda3 review

good for a small child, but i would not want to ride back there for long see full Mazda Mazda3 review

Not enough comfort-room for my son (which meant that the Mazda failed the test). see full Mazda Mazda3 review

2010 4dr Hatch 167-horsepower 2.5L I4

Lively performance with plenty of reserve see full Mazda Mazda3 review
2010 4dr Hatch 167-horsepower 2.5L I4

2.5L non-turbo is fun, but I should have waited for the turbo. see full Mazda Mazda3 review
2010 4dr Hatch 167-horsepower 2.5L I4

Car accelerates well and engine noise is at a minimum. see full Mazda Mazda3 review

Good acceleration, even for passing. see full Mazda Mazda3 review
2010 4dr Hatch turbocharged 263hp 2.3L I4

Tons of power and torque at almost any speed and in any gear. see full Mazda Mazda3 review

2.5 engine power is very good and engine is very smooth. see full Mazda Mazda3 review
2010 4dr Sedan 167-horsepower 2.5L I4
5-speed shiftable automatic FWD
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). see full Mazda Mazda3 review
2010 4dr Sedan 148-horsepower 2.0L I4
5-speed shiftable automatic FWD
Base model has more then enough power and 5 speed auto transmission has little to non-existant shift shock. Very well made and designed. see full Mazda Mazda3 review
2009 4dr Hatch turbocharged 263hp 2.3L I4
6-speed manual FWD
the power train is what it is all about. after 77,000 miles, it has been flawless and fun. the 1st to 2nd shift is a little grinding in cold weather if you rush it. see full Mazda Mazda3 review
2009 4dr Hatch 156-horsepower 2.3L I4
5-speed manual FWD
With the 2.3 liter engine, this Mazda is extremely peppy.. And it only begs for more modification. With the available 5 speed manual transmission, you have nothing but control over how fast you go. Hill climbs are a breeze. see full Mazda Mazda3 review

Lack of AWD was reason #1 I did not buy. End of story. see full Mazda Mazda3 review

It's no contest. The GTI is much more powerful and the engine smoother overall. see full Mazda Mazda3 review

Not enough HP and Torque for hilly situations. see full Mazda Mazda3 review

Engine surged at low speeds, did not lug well. see full Mazda Mazda3 review
2008 4dr Hatch 156-horsepower 2.3L I4

Any normally aspirated 4-cyl will have limited torque and hp. This car is no exception. Probably better than average. Good 5-spd manual transaxle. see full Mazda Mazda3 review
2008 4dr Hatch turbocharged 263hp 2.3L I4
6-speed manual FWD
I absolutely hate the torque steer that it has in 1st gear. Honestly 1-2 are pretty useless and the fact that there is wheel spin distrats me from what the car could be. see full Mazda Mazda3 review
