2010 Mazda Mazdaspeed3 Long-Term Road Test

2010 Mazdaspeed 3: Spy Video Revisited

September 08, 2010


For some reason, I love looking back on our old spy shots of cars that are out now to see if what we said about them checks out. And also to see what we made a big deal about back then. I guess it would be kind of like looking at old issues of People Magazine to see who they thought were the new up-and-coming superstars back then. What ever happened to Tom Green?

For the 2010 Mazdaspeed 3 in this 2008 spy video, we guessed that Mazda wouldn't change the turbocharged four-cylinder but would improve the car's traction. Hmm. However, we did guess right about the other stuff -- same turbocharged four-cylinder and stayed front-wheel drive. Woo hoo!
