2010 Mazda 3 Hatchback

A whole new batch of photos and a video with driving footage were released when the 2010 Mazda 3 hatchback was unveiled to the public at the 2008 Bologna Motor Show, so check them out after the jump.

A Bologna show means European specs, which is quite different from the American range which includes large engines such as the new 2.5 litre. The European engine range tops out at 2.0 litres with 150hp and 187Nm for petrol, but the most powerful engine is the 2.2 litre turbodiesel producing 185 horses and a strong 400Nm of torque at 1,800rpm. The baseline diesel is a 1.6 litre with 109 horsepower and 240Nm of torque, while the baseline petrol is also a 1.6 litre but makes less power – only 105 hp and 145Nm of torque.

The new batch of photos also reveal more about the interior. Check out how tiny that colour LCD display for the sat-nav map display is! Our version will probably get a regular monochrome LCD display though, as we always have most of the time.
