Hmm, could they have modified their engine?

For those who had engine mods, they will wanna be as low key as possible, Those that @Contipro mentioned are rice boys.

Test drive the Mazda 3 and quick feedback for me.

Pros:

Quiet cabin and good sound insulation and soft touches interior.

Cons:

Overpriced, low HP and torque, cramped passenger interior space, 6 speed gearbox not smooth, can feel gear changes like semi auto and jerky gear shifting if want to go fast from pickup or during driving.

For me, Mazda 3 competitors are civic, altis, Avante, Cerato. Mazda 3 rank the last for driver driving experience.

I agree with your feedback. Very similar to mine except for the gear feel.

I have test driven all the cars listed. I feel that the gear changes for the Mazda 3 is good and smooth. Although at times I can feel the slight (really really slight) jerkiness when the gearbox is deciding if it should down or up shift.

For the Avante, Civic and Altis, they're using CVT (Hyundai calls theirs IVT), which is really smooth. I do like the automatics more.

Ended up I bought a 2015 Mazda 6.

AT definitely beats the CVT in terms of drive.

I rented cars with CVT during for my road trip in Perth and Chiang Mai, the whining sound really irritates me especially when going uphill.

For the cars that I've owned, it has always been ATs. One day I will try cars with DCT.
