MAZDASPEED3 AWARDED INTERIOR OF THE YEAR BY WARD’S AUTOWORLD
IRVINE, Calif. – The MAZDASPEED3 features bold, aggressive styling and exhilarating performance to meet the needs of driving enthusiasts with active lifestyles. And now, it also offers an award-winning interior. Ward’s AutoWorld announced today the MAZDASPEED3 winner of the 2010 Ward’s Interior of the Year for Best Brand Expression.
Throughout February and March, Ward’s editors evaluated a vast group of vehicles during their daily driving cycles and awarded points for design, material selection, fit-and-finish, ergonomics, driver information, safety, value and comfort. And at the end of the two-month evaluation process, the MAZDASPEED3 stood in the winner’s circle.
“The MAZDASPEED3 wins the Interior of the Year Award for Brand Expression and with good reason: nothing says zoom-zoom like the MAZDASPEED3, inside and out,” said Tom Murphy, executive editor, Ward’s AutoWorld. “The MAZDASPEED3 is a magnificent achievement for offering MAZDA3 functionality and some truly remarkable interior styling cues, all for a reasonable price. We loved the iridescent fire-engine red on the seats and door panels. It makes the interior look too hot to touch.”
The 2010 MAZDASPEED3 is loaded with all the goodies a driving enthusiast wants, but without anything that would add undue weight. Standard features and equipment include electroluminescent gauges, aluminum pedals, MAZDASPEED -branded black/red cloth seats, door trim, interior trim, floor mats, scuff plates and black/red decoration panel. An available MAZDASPEED3 Tech Package offers advanced keyless entry, push-button start, a compact full-color navigation system, Sirius satellite radio with six months of free service, a perimeter alarm, six CD changer, and BOSE® Centerpoint® surround sound - a five-channel surround system engineered cooperatively with BOSE® that enhances the listening experience thanks to a digital amplifier, noise cancellation technology and 10, strategically placed, premium speakers.
