Montreal Autoshow: Mazda3

14 posts in this topic

Here are some pictures I took of the 2010 Mazda3 at the Montreal International Autoshow in Quebec, Canada on Tuesday January 20th.

A good update of a small car favorite. That big ass grille will take getting used to!

I saw the smile and expected it to ask me if I wanted to see the puppy in the back of its windowless van after I eat some of the candy in its pocket.

What a hideous chud...

I'm sure it'll be A HUGE HIT here though..

Had this been a Pontiac, GM would've been chastised beyond believe.

The more I see it in real life the more I hate it. The blue color is Barfalacious.

I will confess I was among the ones who loved that sizzling photograph Mazda released before LA Autoshow.

Hated the Mazda promo pictures, and.... still hate it.

It's not the height of the grille that bothers me, it's the width. It looks silly going underneath the headlights like that.

It bothered me enough to make me do a 'Paint-chop'...

Sorry for the crappy chop quality, but you get the idea...

mazda has had just as tacky of styling as the cladded pontiacs IMHO. not quite as rice as the hondas, but tacky. and yes, they get a pass.

Hateful front end, looks like something that belongs on one of the Chinese auto show display stands.

They also get a pass when things like quality/engine refinement/fuel economy/rental-fleet sales don't hold up to the Japanese legends as well. Many Ford-types drive them around here as they like to see them as "cool Fords" though.
