I'm not really a hatchback kind of guy, but if you are, looks good. The only thing to consider is space, but if you don't really use your car to transport stuff and don't go on long trips, it should be fine. Looks to be fun to drive as well.

Yeah it is expensive in the US for young drivers as well... There is a drop when your 18, 21, and 25 i think...And if you have any speeding tickets or other moving violations it gets even higher... I remember when i was 17 I had a brand new Acura Integra and was paying more for insurance than I was for the actual Car payments... I wish they would offer a free years insurance on any vehicles over here but that is very unlikely...But my insurance for 2 cars and a bike are only about $750 for the year so I can't complain much but if i was paying $2600 like you that would definitely be the main selling point for me....How is the warranty that comes with it because that makes a HUGE difference as well?

We had a mazda as a rental once, and it was a pretty nice car. Don't know much about that though, but if its a nice car (and not just nicer than what you've got, but actually nice) then I'd get it.
