What Our Members Are Saying about the Seat Room and Comfort of the 2010 Mazda Mazda3

2010 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
2010 Mazda Mazda3 Seat Room and Comfort: Cons
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2011 4dr Sedan 104-horsepower 1.6L I4
5-speed manual FWD
Seating room is borderline for 2 adults, particularly leg room. 3 adults virtually impossible. see full Mazda Mazda3 review
2011 4dr Sedan 167-horsepower 2.5L I4
5-speed shiftable automatic FWD
The Mazda3 is not a vehicle for transporting more than 2 people. The backseat is cramped for a full-size adult. However, when required, they will fit. see full Mazda Mazda3 review

Excellent acceleration and economy balance see full Mazda Mazda3 review
2011 4dr Hatch turbocharged 263hp 2.3L I4

As advertised, power is excellent! I use it as my daily driver and it satisfies the needs for commuting and yet it can accelerate like my 2004 Corvette. see full Mazda Mazda3 review
2011 4dr Sedan 148-horsepower 2.0L I4
5-speed manual FWD
Sweet. sounds great, shifter is amazing. Clutch... everything. Perfect powertrain. 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 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
2010 4dr Sedan 167-horsepower 2.5L I4
6-speed manual FWD
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 Hatch turbocharged 263hp 2.3L I4
6-speed manual FWD
Tons of power and torque at almost any speed and in any gear. 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
2010 4dr Hatch turbocharged 263hp 2.3L I4

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