Why buy a used Mazda 323 with Exchange and Mart?

Mazda returned to a more conventional school of design with the latest generation of its 323. Whilst the previous 323 was undoubtedly adventurous with its coupe-like profile and range of engines that included a punchy V6, it was perhaps too quirky to be considered in the same breath as an Astra or a Focus. With used versions of the latest 323 now beginning to appear in reasonable numbers, has reining in the creative excesses of their designers made the little Mazda a good bet second time around? What it may lack in charisma it more than makes up in reliability and commonsense, making it a sound buy for those not looking for the last word in style or driver enjoyment.

About the Mazda 323

Mazda tried the adventurous route and it didn't work. In resorting to a more conservative style for the latest 323, it finds itself pitched in with stiff competition from Nissan's Almera and Honda's Civic, competition which, on the face of it, it has difficulty justifying itself against when new. As a used proposition it makes far more sense, and affordable residual values coupled with an excellent warranty and reliability record make the 323 a wise choice for those not looking for either the first or last word in either urban chic or tyre-shredding torque. As something of a jack of all trades the 323 is inoffensive, unremarkable, yet broadly competent right across the board. In a congested sector of the marketplace however, will this be enough? Watch this space.
