Mazda's 323 is reliable, roomy and well-built, a reviewer has stated.
With a fully-adjustable driving position and great visibility, the car also benefits from flat cornering and responsive steering, although the dashboard could be better laid out, Parkers states.
The vehicle is a good example of a family car, providing room for passengers and decent luggage space, along with a lively ride from the 1.8-litre and 2.0-litre engines.
However, road noise can become an issue at more than 70 mph and the trim also rattles creating a degree of sound, according to the reviewer.
Also, suspension can be a little too hard meaning that uneven surfaces can make for a bumpy ride.
The model boasts an immobiliser, alarm and deadlocks, with the built-in stereo acting as a thief deterrent, Parkers states, potentially protecting motor insurance premiums.
Available in six trim levels, the bottom range of LXi cars come with central locking, 14-inch steel wheels, driver, passenger and side airbags and electric front windows, with the top spec models boasting air conditioning, metallic paint, alloy wheels and four speakers.
The Mazda 323 is available from Â£10,002 in motor insurance groups five to ten.
Drivers could save up to Â£231.92 on their motor insurance with Kwik-Fit Insurance , according to research conducted last year.
