2010 Mazdaspeed3

I am a huge believer in the Mazda3, it's a great handler, has (or should I say had) nice styling and can be well equipped. Everything remains the same with the 2010 model--top notch equipment levels and from all the specs we have seen, a great performer. That leaves one fly in the ointment: styling.

Sadly, Mazda has decided to plaster the Joker's grin on every grille of its future lineup. Blech. This treatment is over-styled and really detracts from an otherwise fine looking ride. Don't get me wrong, I'd still drive this car (heck, I drove a bug-eyed WRX for several years) but I'd feel better if it had a less offensive mug.
