2012 Mazda 3 i Touring

I've been driving an automatic 2001 Hyundai Accent for a while now so when the chance came, I jumped boat for a manual i Touring. Just picked it up from dealership today and loving its handling and performance. Dealership had to pick it up from another town but it's the color I want so it's worth the wait.

Good pick up! I just got mine last week and am enjoying it so far. I've been in a few fun cars, my last one was turbo and AWD, but the 3 is awesome fun for what it is. 40 mpg on the highway doesn't hurt!

Love that color! Been thinking about getting one with the Skyactive and the manual for the better mileage. What king of mpg are you getting out of it?

Driving to work I get around 31mpg with no highway. Haven't taken road trips on it yet. And EPA rating for manual is 1 mpg less than automatic actually but I just want a manual.

2012 Mazda3 Skyactiv milage

I've just spent most of a tank of gas driving only back and forth to work in my my 2012 3 Skyactiv (Manual).

The trip is only about three minutes, and involves a number of stops. On this tank, the MID is showing 32 MPG. I'm at about 320 miles on this tank, with just under a quarter tank remaining.

I went with the Crystal White. I really really liked the dark blue color too, but the Dune only interior ruined it for me.
