Today's car of the day comes from Ripa's collection, and is Tomica's 2009 Mazda Axela Sport (Mazda 3).

The Mazda3 or Mazda 3 (known as the Mazda Axela in Japan, a combination of "accelerate" and "excellent") is a compact car manufactured in Japan by Mazda. The model 3 became Mazda's 'fastest-selling' vehicle in January 2014, with cumulative sales of over 4 million units. In development from 2004 and designed under Kunihiko Kurisu from early 2005 to August 2006, in October 2008 Mazda released the second generation Mazda3 with restyled exterior. Two engines were offered in the US and Canadian markets, the 2.0L petrol engine offered in the previous generation and a new 2.5L inline-4 shared with the second-generation Mazda6. The C1 architecture, a collaboration of Ford, Mazda, and Volvo, is carried over from the previous generation though marginally wider, longer and lighter than the previous generation. The 2.3L engine was replaced with a 2.5L engine that produces 167 hp. In other markets, more engines are offered including a new 2.2L turbodiesel engine. A 2010 Mazda3 with a 2.5 liter engine and 6-speed manual transmission accelerates to 60 mph in 7.4 seconds and completes the quarter mile in 15.7 seconds at 89 mph.

Cal it a hatchback, or call it a wagon; either way, I was pleased to see Tomica make this car. As a car one would commonly see in parking lots and freeway traffic jams, it is a fantastic diorama car.

Mazda unveiled the 2010 Mazda3 sedan/saloon at the Los Angeles Auto Show on 19 November 2008. The new Mazda3 is slightly larger than the older Mazda3 and is available in "i" and "s" versions. The "i" is powered by a 148 horsepower 2.0L engine while the "s" is powered by a 167 horsepower 2.5L engine adapted from the Mazda6. Both engines are also available in PZEV versions, the 2.0L producing 144 hp and the 2.5L producing 165 hp. The 3s Grand Touring trim level adds leather seats, power driver's seat, rain-sensing windshield wipers, dual-zone automatic climate control, and steerable active bi-xenon headlights as standard equipment. The hatchback was unveiled a few weeks after the sedan/saloon at the Bologna Motor Show. The European model includes a start-stop system with the 2.0L DISI engine with an estimated increase fuel economy in city cycle by roughly 12 percent.

Really a nice shade of blue on this one - like how often Tomica makes models of the everyday type of cars. :rolleyes:
