2009 Mazda Mazdaspeed Mazda3 Grand Touring 4dr Hatchback (2.3L 4cyl Turbo 6M)
Review
You want a rig to massage your ego? Maybe make others look at you longingly in traffic? You never take you car to the redline, don't know that 'matching revs' means, but like to pretend that you could run a hot lap at a local track day? Well then, stop reading here, this isn't your ride...not by a mile. The Mazdaspeed 3 is a stealthy performance car, with a high build quality, that can embarrass a great many more pricy rigs. It doesn't have many interior 'toys' and it's looks don't say "I dipped into my 401K for this...worship me". But it does go, stop, and handle like it cost 50K. Need coddling? Look elsewhere. Want high speed-per-$? Then this is your ride.
Favorite Features
Power. Handling. Stealthy. 'Mod- friendly' engine. High build quality. No-nonsense interior. Drives sedately until you boot it hard. I few low cost mode & it runs ~300 HP on a dyno.
Suggested Improvements
Just one--if this car had AWD it would rule the jungle. C'mon Mazda, you did it with the Mazdaspeed 6....
