Overview Information

The Mazda3 has been highly acclaimed for good reason. A combination of nimble handling and sporty looks ensures that owners need make no apologies for their choice. The 5-door Mazda3 adds extra room behind the folding rear seats, and the hatch provides easy accessibility to cargo.

What Changed:

Mazda's compact Mazda3 enters 2010 with all-new exterior and interior styling. Although the platform is the same size as the previous model, the restyled exterior is about 3 inches longer. All five-door models equip a new 2.5L four-cylinder engine that produces more power than last year's 2.3L. The Mazdaspeed3 has updated styling but retains its powerful 2.3L turbocharged four cylinder.

Some will be mild-mannered, happy and always smiling, and others, well - they will be wicked. Enter the all-new 2010 MAZDASPEED3.
