2010 Mazdaspeed 3. A scenic stop along California Highway 16 en route to Stockton. By the conclusion of our test, the Mazdaspeed 3 had depreciated 26 percent from its original MSRP. Smooth 2.3-liter turbo-4 has minimal drivetrain lash and deals with creeping traffic well. Zing! Prudence rules when using the gearchange quickly, as it can clash synchros. Will a Green Machine fit in the back? It's not always elegant. The hole in the camouflage for the hood scoop was cut by hand. And now the Mazdaspeed 3 is gone. We wish we could have kept it for another 20,000 miles. The power steering pump is replaced on the 2010 model with this pulley. An electric motor now drives the power steering. Real leather: Mazda gets the details right, like the leather-wrapped rim of the steering wheel. You don't get this kind of rear-seat practicality in the Genesis Coupe. Oh, it's got gimmicks, though, like the blue ambient lighting. It's subtle and inoffensive. Tire smoke? What's that? It drives as though honed on roads like this one. Flat cornering is a specialty of the 2010 Mazdaspeed 3. Smooth clutch engagement required more concentration than with other cars. The Mazda's redline might be 6,750 rpm but there is no point in revving the engine past 6,000 rpm. 2010 Mazdaspeed 3 To get the smokiest burnouts possible, we were tempted to nudge them into each other nose to nose and let them burn the tires down that way. Saner heads, unfortunately, prevailed. Surprisingly, interior materials and design were better in the less expensive Mazdaspeed 3 than in the Genesis Coupe. 2010 Mazda Mazdaspeed 3. Flop the Mazda's rear seats down and you've got almost 43 cubic feet of cargo volume. The cabin looks fresh and modern without relying on gimmicks. Hey buddy, you know who you are. We want our $1,200 back.
