I'll be curious to see the 2014 Mazda3, but it's not available yet. If the Chevy Cruise Diesel was available here in the USA in the wagon configuration that's available in some other countries, I'd like that. But it's not coming to the US as far as I know, and if it did, it would certainly be priced higher than $21.5k.
There are plenty of cars that cost more that I like better, but I can't think of any "for the money" ($21.5k) that I'd rather drive.
I probably should of worded that a little differently. I think there are better choices out there for MY money. Honestly, I have almost no emotional attachment to my Impreza. As it stands now, I feel that it has very little personally... Almost like an appliance. My next vehicle will most definitely have more style, power, and amenities.
You are right, however, that an Impreza with more power, amenities, 6MT, etc would cost more.
