Im zweiten Teil (AUTO BILD 43/2003, ab 24.10. im Handel) entscheiden Test-Eindrücke und Kosten den großen Vergleich.

Hard to read the numbers but finally Mazda3 sport finished in third place (132points) behind the Renault megane (140) ex-equo with the vw golf (140). Usually Europeen (German in particular who like to defend their home VW brand) are very arsh against japanese makers. Therefore I'm really suprised that it finished just behind their VW!

Wow... a naked chick in a car advertisement. You don't see that kind of stuff in the states. I think it says "What raises your pulse: women or cars?"

I live in Montreal and the Mazda dealer (my uncle owns it) said all is employees (sellers, mechanics) went to test drive the MZ3 in Montreal. The were totally impressed "it drives like a BMW". I just cant wait to test drive one!
