Mazda’s Hot Hatch
In the past Mazda offered a hot-hatch version of the Mazda3 hatchback called the MAZDASPEED3; the Mazda3 2.5 Turbo offers even more performance in both sedan and hatchback variants. For the first two generations of Mazda3, the MAZDASPEED3 drew power from a 2.3-liter turbocharged engine producing 263 horsepower and 280 lb-ft of torque delivered to the front wheels through a 6-speed manual gearbox. The new Mazda3 2.5 Turbo possesses a significant increase in low-end torque and i-Active all-wheel drive.
