We can't talk about the new Mazda3 without lovingly gushing over the old Mazda3. Introduced in 2003 and produced until this year, the first generation was a segment buster. For about the same coin as its competitors, the Mazda3 gave you more: More sportiness, more refinement, more space and, being a Mazda, more reliability. The Mazda3 was just a better car. And of course there was the beloved MazdaSpeed3 - aka lightning in a reasonably-priced bottle. For 2010, Mazda has built a new, slightly larger 3 packed with polarizing styling, a bigger engine and more creature comforts. But will the new car bust the segment like its predecessor did?

I think a happy car is a refreshing change when nowadays every other car looks like it wants to kill you.

one of the best cars in the segment, but it certainly was NOT a segment buster because the corolla and civic still outsold it.

by a lot.

mazda really overdid the styling on this go round. the interior is nice and functional but its in the end too busy.

the front $h! ass grin is just in poor taste.

embarrassing really. even the grand ams of yore were not as tacky as this.

Not a big fan of the front end but it wouldn't be too bad in black. Still the only car in its segment with any appeal IMO.
