      2008 Mazda RX-8 Overview

      Most auto writers agree that the 2008 Mazda RX-8 is both sporty and practical. "Performance is often synonymous with a pricey and punishing ride. But the Mazda RX-8 defies convention," says Forbes. Still, the RX-8 ranks in the bottom half of its class because its combination of engine power, great handling, and a practical interior can't make up for its poor fuel economy, high-maintenance needs, and less-than-perfect interior construction. On the plus side, the RX-8 is the only affordable sports car with a truly comfortable backseat -- an advantage few shoppers are likely to brush aside.

      The 2008 Mazda RX-8 is offered in three trims: Sport, Touring and Grand Touring.

      The RX-8 is a true sports car but its rotary engine makes it too inconvenient to appeal to most drivers.

      Minor grievances aside, the RX-8 is a wonderful automobile, more of a civilized sports coupe than a sports sedan. Prospective owners should be sensitive to the complexities of ownership, as this Mazda tries to be a different type of sports car.
