2014 mazda3 iSport = 19.9k
2014 ford focus se = 17.1k
both new and have around the same msrp
the mazda3 is my 1st choice but the price is on the high side due to demand..i'm trying to get the dealers to go lower but so far i'm not having any luck. the focus is really cheap though, it's a good 2nd choice for me. since 2012 it's been getting great reviews.
i need to make a decision this week (or today)..i can't wait any longer
(focus in that link is manual, automatic is about 1k more)
