Edmunds.com Editors' Most Wanted Vehicles for 2004 (USA)
Most Wanted Sedan Under $15,000
Winner: Mazda 3

With its sharp looks, agile handling and unique interior design, the Mazda 3 threatens to give the term "economy car" a good name. Like the Protegé that it replaces, the 3 is a thrill behind the wheel thanks to a precisely tuned suspension, quick steering and strong brakes. Throw in two of the most powerful engines in its class and it's easy to see why we're big fans of this new sedan. But this Mazda is about more than just performance, as it features a stylish interior that goes beyond pure functionality to deliver a setup that not only works well but looks good, too. For the price, you would be hard-pressed to find a better four-door sedan on the market than the Mazda 3.
