Mazda MAZDASPEED3 Overview
Aggressive, muscular, and quick as lightning, the MAZDASPEED3 was launched in 2007, and follows the introduction in the U.S. of other tricked-out high-performance MAZDASPEED cars, including the 2003 MAZDASPEED Protege and the 2006 MAZDASPEED6. The MAZDASPEED3 is a high-performance five-door sport compact based on the Mazda3 hatchback. It's powered by a turbocharged 2.3-liter, direct-injection four-cylinder engine that pumps out 263 horsepower. A six-speed manual transmission is standard.
Design enhancements include side skirts, floating fog lamps, a rear roof spoiler, and a beefed-up tailpipe. The suspension has been beefed up as well, and brakes are larger. In addition, the four-wheel anti-lock braking system is more powerful, and an emergency brake assist system is standard.
The interior is highlighted by black upholstery with red contrast stitching as well as black leather on the steering wheel and shift knob, and a black matte instrument panel.
The MAZDASPEED3 is available in both Sport and Grand Touring packages. Standard features include air conditioning, automatic climate control, cruise control, power windows, remote keyless entry, dual airbags plus side-impact air curtains, xenon high-intensity headlights, and 18-inch wheels.
As might be expected, the MAZDASPEED3 received high marks from both drivers and critics, some of whom called the car nothing less than impressive. Its power, handling, styling, and interior appointments were all cited as positive points.
