The New Mazda 3: Happy Happy Happy

I have always been a fan of the Mazda3, which is a spunky little car that doesn't make you feel like you are an underachiever for driving a compact car.

But when I saw the face of the new design, blech.

From this angle, it looks good:

It just looks so damn happy. To me, "zoom zoom" should have a touch of mean, not a huge toothless smile flying down the road. In a way, it reminds of me some Japanese anime critter. Just make the side mirrors into big flowing ears.

For contrast, here is the old one, not quite as happy:

The new Acura is not quite so happy - maybe it had a little less saki...
