Powerful Turbo Engine
The Mazda3 has always been a sporty, fun-to-drive car, but the addition of the 2.5-liter Turbo with i-Active all-wheel drive gives the compact sedan a significant performance boost. Mazda engineers originally developed the 2.5 Turbo for the larger CX-9 crossover to develop more low-end torque over peak high-rpm horsepower to improve everyday drivability. The engine has since been offered in CX-5 and Mazda6 before being fitted to the Mazda3, the smallest of the four models.
