2010 Mazda Mazdaspeed3 Long-Term Road Test


2010 Mazda Mazdaspeed 3: Part Of The Manual Club

I like cars that come with manual transmissions only. Seeing a Mazdaspeed 3 on the road invites a sense of kinship -- just like you, that other driver has bought this car even though it meant having to "deal" with a manual transmission. On the flip side, ninety-something percent of the driving public would never even consider this car because it doesn't offer an auto.

It's certainly a poor business plan -- Mazda could sell way more Mazdaspeed 3s if it offered an automatic or an automated dual clutch manual. Even so, cars like the MS3 get an extra point of coolness in my book.
