Long long time Corolla man just unloaded my 2010 Rolla S 5sp and bought new white 2013 Hatchback I GT with Tec Package. We looked at the new 14 Corolla S but not sure about the new CVT. We drove the new Civic, and the new 14 Mazda 3 I GT, and the 13 I GT. Fist hands down the Mazda way better fit, finish, and ride. We liked the body style of the 13 hatchback and got what we think a good deal. We are in our 50's so the only mods here will be tint and maybe some black wheels. Still like my Toyota's the wife has a 2011 4 Runner Limited but for me the Mazda is a blast to drive.
