2007 Mazda Mazdaspeed 3 Grand Touring 4dr Hatchback (2.3L 4cyl Turbo 6M)


Looks good, drives nicely, ample interior room, functional, and turbo makes you smile. But I have to say this car has too much torque and power and as a result you have a lot of torque steer and way too much understeer. Now 90% of people who drives this car will not be able to utilize the full 260bhp unless you are going in a straight line. Me... I prefer the curvy roads. The suspension is fairy stiff but when driving hard, not stiff enough. But when you're driving normally, it feels too stiff. All in all, great car but they didn't focus too much on handling because they focused too much on power only.

Best Features

Looks, interior is functional, cheap feel inside but for the price, it's nice. Engine sounds terribly good.

Worst Features

Adjustable suspension settings, AWD feature, interior could feel larger with slight design changes, gearbox feels odd, clutch stick occasionally, and just for my car - My right brake light already burnt out! bleh!
