other than every mazda we had as i work for them but almost every subaru since they are next door owned by the same owner as well as the jeep renegade and some dodges awd somethings as that brand is also owned by the same owner. oh and both fiat 500 and the abarth. i also tried the rav 4, corolla, camry, 2014 elantra and veloster turbo, 2014 honda civic, HR V, CRZ, and some fords as we had like 3 on our used lot from 2013.
i tried all of these for about 3 weeks as i was planning on trading in my honda fit for a newer car until the honda got t-boned and it goes bye bye. other than being a great car i also got employee discounts and help from my sales managers who helped me out greatly.
this was also a perfect choice as it hits most of my criteria right off the bat. AWD, looks good, interior is fantastic, good enough cargo (nothing beats my fit), greater luxuries i never had before (working A/C, heated leather seats, no leaks), and i can maintain and fix almost any problems through work cheaply so sweet on that.
out of all of those and the fact that my girlfriend is also co-paying for it i sucked it up and passed on all the turbo cars and fwd cars and ended up with the cx3 which i do not at all regret. still i will complain and whine till im blue in the face i want a manual cx3 darn it
