I’m thinking of adding it to my “hey you’re an adult now you should probably get a reliable car” list for after I graduate in May. I like the way they look and their fuel economy, plus how well space is utilized.


This one for sale near me is pretty affordable, plus has about 100k miles less than my car (and is 17 years younger).

How are these in terms of handling, usability, comfort, reliability, etc?

Oh, also, here’s the list in question as it currently sits.

1. Mk5 Golf (GTI if I can find one)

2. Hyundai Elantra hatch (new or used, they list at like 20k)

3. Used Mazda3 Hatch

4. Some iteration of Corolla hatch (built this decade)

Anything else I should be shopping in the smallish hatchback that has a decent manual segment? (AKA, the Oppo segment)
