Exterior

The 2010 Mazda3's exterior styling builds on its predecessor's athletic proportions by emphasizing design features. One of them is the front grille, but Mazda may have gone a bit too far with it, as the gaping opening in the lower bumper looks like a sinister smile. It's a little much on the front of this car. The rest of the Mazda3 is stylish but much more toned down than the front, with smooth body panels.  Exterior features include:  

  • Hatchback or sedan body styles
  • Standard 16-inch wheels
  • Optional 17-inch wheels
  • Optional moonroof
  • Optional rear spoiler
  • Optional xenon high-intensity-discharge headlights and LED taillights
