MAZDA RX3
Estate: £1,675
Saloon: £1,615
Claimed to be the world's first rotary-powered estate, the Japanese Mazda RX3 Wagon is a 100 m.p.h.-plus vehicle with a maximum load capacity of 36 cubic feet when the rear seat is folded. Powered by Mazda's Wankel engine, the Wagon is extremely lively and quiet-running, yet demands only 90 octane (two-star) petrol. The motor is backed by a 24000/24 months warranty which includes all parts and labour costs. All instruments have recessed dials and non-reflective lenses, and the heater has a three-speed booster fan for quick warm-ups. The toolkit includes wheel chocks.

MAZDA RX4
Saloon: £2,000
Coupe: £2,050
Latest in the famous Japanese line of Wankel-engined cars, the RX4 is their largest yet. With an engine classed as 2292 c.c., the Mazda four-door saloon is capable of around 110 m.p.h., yet it demands only the cheapest petrol. The twin-rotor engine is delightfully smooth, and quiet at its genuine cruising speed of 90 m.p.h. Fuel consumption of the rotary engine, as a type, is high –a fact which has led the manufacturers to fit a 14¼-gallon petrol tank. Unlike so many Japanese cars, the RX4 is roomy, and the luggage boot is large. The wide wheels, track, and radial tyres play their part in good handling.
