4dr Cpe Man R3
Starting at | Starting at 16 MPG City - 22 MPG Highway
The RX-8 has a lot of competition among sporty vehicles in the $30,000 range, but it is the Mazda's unique features that enhance its appeal. The Mazda RENESIS rotary engine is the only one of its kind available in the United States, and the RX-8's rounded styling makes it unmistakable. The RX-8's handling is almost universally acclaimed by auto journalists and enthusiasts alike. Add in Mazda's reputation for making great-handling, reliable, value-laden vehicles, and the RX-8 becomes the only one in its class.
After a thorough freshening for 2009, the RX-8 gets very few changes in 2010. The Touring model was dropped in favor of two trim levels, Sport and Grand Touring. The R3 model is new, and aimed at the enthusiast driver. The design changes of last year remain, but new 10-spoke wheels with a rotary engine motif are available. One new paint color was added, Liquid Silver.
The core of the RX-8 since 2003 has been its 1.3-liter twin-rotor RENESIS rotary engine. With the standard 6-speed manual transmission, the engine makes 232 hp. The optional 6-speed automatic with paddle shifters, available on the Sport and Grand Touring models, makes 212 hp. The front suspension is aluminum double wishbone, and all wheels have gas-filled shock absorbers. Steering assistance comes from an electric motor rather than a power-steering pump for better driver feedback.
