The 2010 Mazda 3 was just previewed by Mazda a couple short days ago in a series of three photos that showcased the upcoming Mazda 3’s new design which takes many styling cues from the new Mazda6 and futuristic looking RX-8.
Fast forward to today where the 2010 Mazda 3’s momentum leading up to it’s official unveiling grew stronger through a crystal clear interior spy photo captured by TheTruthAboutCars.com:
In the interior spy shot above you can see more than a few changes that we’ll be seeing on the upcoming Mazda 3. First (and probably the most prominent change) is the split layout of the gauges and information screens which is now similar to the current Honda Civic lineup. Mazda has also relocated the unlock button to the door panel near the window controls and carried over the cupholders from the first generation Mazda 3.
Top end interior options expected to be announced for the 2010 Mazda 3 include Mazda’s advanced keyless entry system with push button start, mp3 hard drive, more steering wheel based controls and multi-stage heated seats. Remote trunk release is also expected on the 2010 Mazda 3 as it appears on four door models for the 2009 model year and should be carried over.
You can also check out our forums to talk with other Mazda 3 drivers about the upcoming second generation.
