Cheers everyone  :) I'm coming from a 2l Golf TDI (had it for 4 years now) so was just wondering how things compared with a non turbo car.
Hoping to drive a Sport this weekend to see what it feels like. I'll be doing mostly city driving from now on so I'm sure the Mazda 3 will be enough for that environment.
I really like the look of this car. Its white with a full leather interior. Mileage is low and the prices seems right

Sure it'll be fine it's just a different driving style, if I'm driving our turbo diesel rather than the petrol it's best to row through the gears between 1800 and 2800rpm.

You can easily do the same in the NA petrol and it'll not struggle and keep up with traffic flow but for overtaking or joining motorways, steep hills e.t.c. you'll do better if you open it out a bit more to bring the torque into play.
