AutoBlog: Review: 2010 Mazda3 a tale of two Mazdas

2010 Mazda3 - Click above for high-res image gallery

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?

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.
