2010 Mazdaspeed 3: Design Critique, Part Deux
April 29, 2010
In my last Mazdaspeed 3 post, I made it clear that I wasn't a fan of its interior design. Well, I'm also not very fond of its grille, either. I don't like cars that look happy or "cute". Especially if a car has performance leanings. So, above, you see the actual Mazdaspeed 3 at my favorite racetrack, Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca. Click through to see how I decided to alter the grille.
Even though I did the Photochop on this, I think it can stand some additional work. When I was done, I thought it looked too much like a Celica. That said, I still think it's better than a cheesy smile. What do you think?
