                                    2010 Mazda 3: What We Know So Far
                                                By Brian DeCastro



   The 2010 Mazda 3 is no stranger to the automotive press with dozens of spy shots popping up over
the past few months and speculative renderings coming from all around the world. Because the Mazda
3 is Mazda's top selling vehicle in the U.S. it's not hard to see why it is drawing in so much excitement
surrounding its unveiling at the Los Angeles Auto Show in November.

 The redesign couldn't come up at a better time for Mazda when, even in the midst of a languishing
economy, the Mazda 3 continues to be a hot seller among the ultra competitive compact car segment
against the likes of the newly revised Honda Civic and Toyota Corolla.

 Although nothing is set in stone (read: confirmed by Mazda) yet we have created a list of what to
expect when the Mazda 3 is officially unveiled by Mazda:

 First, the current 2.3 liter motor will be swapped out in favor of Mazda's 2.5 liter currently in the 2009
Mazda6. This will bring power up to around 170 hp, from the current 150-156 hp of the Mazda 3 s-line
and will offer both a six speed manual transmission and a five speed sport automatic transmission. The
Mazda 3 i-line is expected to carryover its 2.0 liter engine and transmission options.

 Photos of the 2010 Mazda 3 prototype have showcased a new dual exhaust and large, more
aggressively styled wheels. Its not yet known if the dual exhaust will remain exclusive to the s-line or if
the base model i-line Mazda 3s will also receive the new exhaust setup

 When it comes to design the 2010 Mazda 3 can best be described as evolutionary with a similar
overall body profile and a few changes around the front and back. From the spy shots we can see
styling cues borrowed from the new Mazda6 and up front, with flared wheel arches and an upwardly
sculpted front bumper reminiscent of the recent Mazdaspeed RX-8 concept car.

 One styling point that's hotly debated is whether Mazda will add pronounced, sweeping body lines
along the side of the next Mazda 3 to evoke styling elements from Mazda's popular Nagare concept
car. While Mazda may sample some Nagare concept styling we don't think the lines will be quite as
aggressive.

Following the Mazda6's march towards luxury car dominance, the upcoming Mazda 3 has been



                                                                                                                  Page 1

spotted with previously unseen luxury amenities in the compact car segment like integrated mirror turn
signals, Mazda's advanced keyless entry system with push button start, mp3 hard drive, and numerous
steering wheel based controls.

 These new features are in addition to the current Mazda 3's options including HID headlights, auto
rain sensing wipers, auto on/off headlights, Bose sound system with aux input, lighted vanities, auto
down driver's window, one-touch moonroof and power seat controls.

 None of the new features listed above are set in stone (they were observed on what appeared to be a
near final prototype model during testing) it is very likely that the features will remain and be available
on the final retail product. The stage is set and Mazda will officially reveal the 2010 Mazda 3's design
at the Los Angeles Auto Show which runs between November 17th and 26th.

                             2010 Mazdaspeed 3: What We Know So Far
                                           By Brian DeCastro



The 2010 Mazdaspeed 3 was recently caught being put through the motions on the world famous
Nurburgring race track in Germany and it's definitely a big departure from the current generation. Often
criticized as being too staid looking to be a "hot hatch" worthy of competing with the likes of the
Volkswagen GTI, Honda Civic Si and Subaru Impreza WRX, the next generation Mazdaspeed 3 has
been designed to be anything but ordinary.

 In the front, the 2010 Mazdaspeed 3 takes on styling cues from the upcoming 2010 Mazda 3 with a
smooth, sleek front end but adds one significant difference: a huge hood scoop. Unlike the previous
Mazdaspeed 3, the new generation will introduce more air through a hood scoop which will likely cool
off a larger, more powerful turbocharged motor. Before getting into rumored motors, the remainder of
the 2010 Mazdaspeed 3 exterior includes flared out wheel arches similar to the RX-8, more aggressive
side skirts and a redesigned rear bumper that includes sculpted openings for a new dual exhaust
system.

 As of this writing Mazda hasn't confirmed what motor will be used in the new Mazdaspeed 3 but rumor
has it the new 'Speed will either use the 2.5 liter four cylinder from the next generation Mazda 3 (plus a
turbo) or a Volvo sourced T5 (turbo five cylinder) producing around 300 horsepower. One popular
online car site predicted the current 2.3 liter four cylinder in the Mazdaspeed 3 will be carried over into
the next generation at the same power output. We question the logic behind why Mazda would bother
adding a large hood scoop to the new Mazdaspeed 3 if they aren't going to use an engine more
powerful than the current iteraiton.

 There is much concern over the 2010 Mazdaspeed 3's ability to manage a three hundred horsepower
engine while maintaining its front wheel drive only configuration. It's widely expected that Mazda will
either offer all wheel drive standard or take advantage of Ford's new RevoKnuckle FWD suspension
system that reduces torque steer and allows automakers to put more power to the front wheels. If the
RevoKnuckle FWD system is in fact a possibility then it conflicts with rumors that claim the upcoming
Mazdaspeed 3 will not have a limited slip differential.

 Inside, the 2010 Mazdaspeed 3 will see many of the same new interior design elements as the 2010
Mazda 3 including a two tier dashboard with information and radio data display screen residing above
a newly contoured center dash panel. Below the radio controls are three large, recessed radio dials
that control fan speed, heat and air conditioning outlets and temperature.

 The next Mazdaspeed 3 is most likely going to continue on as a hatchback only model and we still
await official word from Mazda on what interior options they plan to carry over from the more
mainstream Mazda 3 model. Based on spy shots of the Mazdaspeed 3, it appears that Mazda will
continue their plan to not include a sunroof on Mazdaspeed 3s in order to improve aerodynamics.
Mazda has also reshaped the rear spoiler on the 2010 Mazdaspeed 3 prototype which will increase
downforce and improve the driving experience at higher speeds.
