Much has changed, but the 2010 Mazda3 remains more entertaining and sophisticated than its price tag would suggest. Although it maintains much of its chassis architecture from the previous model years, the 2010 Mazda 3 is otherwise an all-new car. Highlights include revised exterior styling, improved fuel economy and power, a more modern interior design and new luxury-oriented features.
The base 2.0-liter four-cylinder remains unchanged in terms of power, but fuel economy has improved. Its other engine has a similar story, but these are two of the peppiest power plants found in the economy sedan class. The 2010 Mazda 3 is a class leader in terms of interior design, quality, and feature content. Most Mazda 3 Sedans and hatchbacks won't be optioned-out Grand Touring models, but they'll still get high-quality materials, comfortable seats, and ample space. The vehicle is less spacious than its competitors, but only slightly so.
The Mazda 3 has not only refined road manners, but it's the perfect buy for those on a budget.
