12: 1992-1996 Mazda MX-3 V6
Oddly enough, the Mazda MX-3 is similar to the Nissan NX2000 design. The automaker went ahead with the design of the car. The difference with the MX-3 V6 is that the engine was shared across multiple models. Drivers got the performance of the Mazda MX-6 with the versatility of a hatchback. The interior is cramped and cargo space is not what you’d expect. The hatch does not open high enough to load large cargo or big suitcases.
City driving is where the MX-3 is at home. The short wheelbase coupled with the V6 engine gives the car wonderful dynamics. The V6 engine is well-suited to what Mazda buyers are looking for in a car. The dashboard is a mixture of RX-7 and Miata, all crammed into the same thing. Don’t forget the automatic seatbelts, a fixture of the 1990s car design (via Motor Trend).
