The Mazda 3 is an elegant car with superb handling. With this combination, it’s no wonder it has been on the “best new car” list for multiple years. With two models, it is the “i” model that will keep you under the $20,000 mark, but even so, the “i” model is equipped with plenty of features to make this an excellent automobile that gets great consumer research ratings. The 2.0 liter four-cylinder engine givers you 155 hp while the “s” model runs on a 2.5 liter. Both were designed with plenty of sophisticated interior features, such as, a rea-view mirror camera and heated seats. You will also enjoy having ample storage space, all for a budget of around $20,000.
