Carsguide and redbook are great sites to get some info on the cars and compare fuel efficiency and what the cars are worth plus cars guide has reviews too. The Mazda 3 is slightly more fuel efficient than the corolla of the same year but then you need to compare the cost of services and parts for an overall picture. Love both of those car tho ,plenty of room and do the job well.

An '08 Mazda 3 would be awesome assuming it's been looked after well, of course. And Toyota Corolla's are always a safe bet - that's why the resale value of both cars is excellent.
Nissans are good. My cousin has a Micra and it's great. I just don't know what models there are out there. I've also heard great things about the Hyundai i30. I'd steer clear of Kias personally, heard very mixed reviews. The newer model Mitsubishi Lancer's are supposed to be great and have an excellent safety rating too.
I'm trying to remember all the details from when we bought ours, although we looked at Mazda 3s and not much else, we narrowed it down to Mazda 3, but we had Toyota Corolla and Hyundai i30 on our short list. The Mazda won because I've had a Mazda before and trust them (mine was an '89 model and was still going strong when we parted), we thought it was a bit sexier but it'd also grow best with our family and DP didn't really want to drive a Toyota...snob
