2010 Mazda Mazda3
2010 Mazda Mazda3
The Mazda 3 has been redesigned for 2010. It competes well in the compact car market. It comes available in either a sedan or four door hatchback flavors. There are three trim levels to choose from as well. The Mazda 3 shows a rare level of interior class for this segment of cars. It also offers enough room for full sized adults to be comfortable in the front seats. It gives the general impression that more was paid for the car than it actually costs.

Power for this sporty compact comes from both a 2.0 liter four cylinder making 148 HP and 135 Ft. – lbs. of torque, or a 2.5 liter inline 4 cylinder model making 167 HP and 168 Ft. – Lbs. of torque. Power is routed through either a six speed manual or a five speed automatic transmission.

What comes as a surprise to many who drive the Mazda 3 is the manners it exhibits on the road. It has quick and communicative steering, combined with good grip and excellent body motion control. Though riders used to the softly sprung ride of a Honda or Toyota many find the 3's ride a bit too firm.

Is the internal combustion engine dead? The number of firms around the globe sinking capital into advancing electric drive technologies, battery chemistry, and other alternative propulsion systems might suggest the internal combustion engine has finally reached its swansong, but Mazda begs to differ. Although the Japanese automaker has tinkered with a number of advanced propulsion systems over the past decade, it feels there's plenty of life left in conventional, fuel-burning engines, albeit not without a little help from new technologies.

The old Mazda 3 was already one of our favorite small cars. Twice an AUTOMOBILE MAGAZINE All-Star, the previous 3 was a cut above its contemporaries. When Mazda's highest-volume car went in for a redesign for the 2010 model year, it emerged with a more powerful engine (in the "s" models, at least), an additional gear for its manual and automatic transmissions, a plethora of new luxury features, and new styling led off by a front end that West Coast editor Jason Cammisa described as "an anime gremlin wearing an I've-been-naughty grin."

In a follow-up to an initial investigation by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration of steering equipment on the 2007-09 Mazda3, Mazda will recall nearly 200,000 models, including the Mazda 3 and the Mazda 5 minivan.
