The Mazda 3 is a great car and the reviews both here and in the UK confirm that. However the Astra sells very well in Europe, even for a time being the best selling compact (beating out the traditional top seller - VW Golf). The Astra reviews have also been pretty good so Saturn have a very competitive car in the Astra. We can argue about Astra vs Mazda 3 but it would be fair to say these are the best two standard compacts on the market (I am excluding GTi, R32, MazdaSpeed 3 etc as these are much more performance orientated).
