One look at the 2010 Mazdaspeed3 is enough to tell you that things have changed. While all the underhood details are still unavaliable, intial images have come to light to give us a better glimpse of the car that will be making its debut across the Atlantic tonight.
The new Mazdaspeed3's Nagare-style grinning grille remains largely the same up front, but features reworked air intakes that feed passing air to the brakes more efficiently. Also of note on the front clip is the deletion of lower ducts set below the foglights. More aggressive side skirts continue the Mazdaspeed theme along the flanks and to the rear, the enhancements culminate with a blacked-out rear diffuser sporting a dual exhaust. A more pronounced wing also perches above the five-door's hatchback. Bolder fenders house the larger wheel and tire setup, while the bulging hood features a gaping scoop.
Though the Euro-spec and U.S.-spec Mazdaspeed3 likely won't be perfectly identical, this car should give us a pretty good idea of what to expect from the U.S. model. Until we see that car in New York this April, stay tuned as we bring you all the information on the Euro version from Geneva later tonight.
